Please provide a reference to the definition of "transcendental view".

comment Advantage of Docker to automation
I removed the Selenium tag because the question does not mention Selenium.

comment Which Agile certifications suits the Beginner or Medium level Agile developer?
The question is tagged "agile-testing" but nothing in the title or the text mentions anything about testing.

comment Obfuscating logs before publishing
is that intended to be an answer to the question, or a reply to one of the other answers? (I think it's the latter.)

comment What should an automation tester create a script for?
I agree with the first two paragraphs and disagree with the last. Automation has to be maintained just like any other software. You need to choose your automation so that the time you save is more than the time you spend maintaining it.

comment Should Testers first discuss a bug with the developers before writing a bug report?
It doesn't matter what we say, or what the "industry standards" might be. You need to figure out what works for you and your developers. Nothing else matters.

Agreed that the Op may want to reconsider their requirements.

comment Is testing/automation as a profession going to die?
Be more specific about the type of test automation. Some jobs will disappear sooner than others. It boils down to the skill level.

comment Will coding experience from automated testing translate well for software development?
Of course, not all QA automation experience is immediately transferable to development. For example, at my company, most QA automation uses Python and Selenium, whereas most product development is in Java. At our company, someone with Python experience but no Java experience would have to work harder to make the leap to dev. Fixing bugs could be a good way to get your feet wet.

comment Webdriver auto-filtering results
It looks as if that element is added dynamically. I wonder if you're calling getElementsByTagName before hangout-module exists. Adding a sleep beforehand might help determine if that's the problem.

comment Webdriver auto-filtering results
There is a typo in your webdriver code fragment. Perhaps you meant this: (def d (execute-script "var n = document.body.getElementsByTagName(\"*\").length; return n;"))

comment Does Selenium depend on internet speed
Note that you probably do not want to use Selenium for performance testing.

comment JMeter BeanShell get EC2 instance ids
You want the "describe-instances" command. See this documentation for example.

comment Can a smoke test be a pre-condition and assumption for a test case?
I do not understand the difference between a pre-condition and an assumption. It is generally a bad idea for a test to depend on the side-effects of another test.

comment What is the difference between automation tests and test automation?
I've also heard the term "automation" used to mean using software to help with testing. That might include things like generating fake data or putting the system in a state that makes it easier to perform a manual test. Really, the concept is more important that the specific term.

comment Best approach to learn programming and start test automation
I don't understand your question. It depends on what kind of automation you want to do (automation is about a lot more than driving a remote browser). It can also depend on your programming skills, the skills of your co-workers, and what language your developers use.

comment Measuring audio delay
Are you asking how to calculate the delay between two time series? Or are you asking how to extract the audio signal from a Skype recording? Or something else?

comment How to test an algorithm for posting to social media
How is the algorithm supposed to prevent collisions: does it check the social media site to determine what is already there, or does it remember what it has already posted, or something else?

comment Test, Improve performance of WebDriver Automation framework
Sorry, that's like asking "How do I make software better?" You did not provide enough detail to answer the question. Please write a new question that provides specific details about what you are trying to do.
