comment Is it possible to test app behaviors without considering UI and client platform?
I understand, but some apps take a different path through the code when they detect the client is a desktop device rather than a mobile device. If you were watching, you would see a different series of GET and POST requests coming in from different clients. Perhaps it doesn't matter for your app. You could use a tool which abstracts the client, such as cURL.

comment Is it possible to test app behaviors without considering UI and client platform?
Are you assuming your application behaves identically without regard to the end user's platform? Many apps dynamically change their behavior in the presence of a mobile, small-screen client versus a desktop client. (That's how the app I am testing works, for example).

comment Standards for documenting input validation rules & system/error messages?
I've something similar in the past (although I don't have an example around). Consider adding things like max length, target db table+column, etc

comment How to handle new “not reproducible” bug, that is known to exist but not known how
Good answer. In addition to the Product Manager, you can often enlist Customer Service in getting more information from the customer who reported the problem. Joining in on a phone call or webex might be in order, too. And perhaps this instance will help in your justification for a professional QA Team ;-)

comment Which Certifications is more demanding for QA, and Software Testing professionals?
By "demanding" do you mean "is in the most demand" by companies hiring Senior SQA Engineers?

comment What is a good website to hack around using Selenium?
@dzieciou - perhaps, but so what? When analyzing web logs, it's pretty easy to determine if the hits are coming from web crawlers or not. You aren't a web crawler, thus you are at risk of being put on a black list.

comment What skills & technologies should I acquire / learn for performing my role as a Test Lead?
Good answer (and not because you mentioned my blog!) Some Leads also have Scheduling and Estimation as part of their roles - if that's you, you'll need to acquire that as a skill as well. And while you may not have hire/fire responsibilities, you may have performance review/assessment responsibilities. That may need to be added to your skill set.
