comment 1.5 Million lines of code. 0 tests. Where should we start?
@xster To be honest, this is a very common issue. Most people I've talked with have shared similar experiences at at least one place they've worked.

comment Is specification replaced by tests in TDD?
One of the greatest benefits of TDD is to the developers who aren't provided specs at all. So yes, there is potential for replacement, but some of them are replacing a null value.

comment Recommend a Good QA Book
perhaps you could elaborate more on this. What makes it a good book, what did you like about it, etc. Typically I would expect a recommendation to include more than just a title and author.

comment What is the maximum size that a .msi windows installer file can be?
Part of me says this blog is from 7 years ago - is it still accurate? The other part of me says I'll worry about that when I hit a 128TB installer...

comment Should data validation be automated in a rapid development environment
Could you elaborate on this? I'm all for learning new tools but perhaps you could add about how it assists in solving OPs problem.

comment How to find QC removed test scripts and bring them back
Srihari, while I haven't worked with QC for a while and can't say for sure, it doesn't seem like there's enough information in this question to really answer it on its own. Perhaps editing some of the information from your esnips document into your question will help get the answer you're looking for?

comment Is the “Joel Test” appropriate when looking for a QA job?
@Ethel I feel you there. Bearing in mind that our PMs also do the testing, we only within the last 2 months got approval to have them test the projects added in the release. They can't believe how many of them don't integrate with the rest of the system, and then come back on the developers for it. In time, I'm sure they'll realize this is a normal part of development. :)

comment In TDD, do tests need to be automated?
Being quite familiar with the Joel test, I have scored my firm as a 3.5. (In order, yes no no yes no no no no yes no (yes, but not dedicated) no.) However, it really is just a mechanism by which you can compare various teams. Also, we're not a software firm - we're a manufacturing firm, putting us at the whim of those who are not so "best-practicey" savvy. As such, I am trying to find small process changes that either feed into government requirements, or are entirely contained within development, as a way to circumvent corporate inertia (which is a serious factor).
