comment Which automated tests do devs create vs SQA staff?
BTW making sure that product is free of bugs is practically impossible, given the number of variables that impact the code base. You can only get some level of confidence about that.

comment Which automated tests do devs create vs SQA staff?
Welcome to SQA, Usman. If developers write test cases to make sure the product is fully functional and free of bugs than what is the goal of QA engineers in writing tests? Is that goal different?

Welcome to SQA. What do you mean by "SQA team [...] have created about 600 bugs"? They introduced defects to the code base?

See similar question SE: "What are some popular naming conventions for Unit Tests?" + questions directly linked to this question there.

@Edmondo1984: I might sound sarcastic ;-) but your belief makes a perfect sense in the ideal situation when you're not constrained by your management. Hence, I would suggest you to post another question: "What are better test management tools than Excel?" and then answer it yourself.

BTW, I think your question is universal for any language.

comment Best practices for organising and naming test cases
Others will give more complete advice, but I usually write what the test should do e.g. parsing_should_throw_exception_for_invalid_input(). This is in according to given-when-then grammar style.

comment Best practices for organising and naming test cases
You mentioned naming convention for unit tests files. You could also describe: example names for single test cases (methods), example names and organization of functional tests, what exactly components are in your case (i.e., what your component test cover in comparison to unit tests). That would help other answer your question.

How does this answer the question? "A lot of people DO use excel (and share point), and I'd like to understand HOW they do it." + "As Bruce said, sometimes testers are stuck using a spreadsheet because the choice is outside of their control."

comment Internationalization testing
I heard similar story about internal system we use in our company for reporting time-off. While in US basically the holiday is a holiday, in my country there are at least 6 types of holidays and must be counted and processed differently.
