comment How to start up a QA consulting business?
Have you consulted through an Agency before? If not, you should. Then you could learn about being a consultant, and learn something about the business of owning a consultancy.

comment How to start up a QA consulting business?
"What makes my service valuable? = The cost" ??? That's all? It's going to be hard for someone in the US to compete solely on cost.

comment Should the test code be written in the same language in which actual code is written
Are you a developer fluent in Java? Or are you solely a tester fluent in some other tool?

comment What is a good mobile application testing training plan?
What is the audience for this training plan? Newly hired web-experienced testers? New hires with no testing background? Just anyone interested in mobile application testing? All training plans should be tailored to the needs of the trainees.

Do you have requirements for this field? Perhaps your database only stores 5 digits?

comment Test ideas for testing Reports?
Have you tried manipulating the data used to generate the reports? You could simplify it so that the output for each report is completely predictable, yet covers all the test cases.

comment Tracking manual testing interaction
This is a good answer. Many test automation tools have a Record feature. Their output scripts can provide a decent log of what was tested. I use WinTask, but you could certain try a bunch and see which works best for you. This might help: allthingsquality.com/2013/08/…

comment Tracking manual testing interaction
I have used TimeSnapper. It would be fine for the "screenshots" part, but doesn't actually "log" what is tested.

comment How to determine a 'reasonable' response time?
@dzieciou - Yes, that's one way. The other way is to "improve" A so that in the lab it's measurably faster than B. Then use A/B testing to find out if customers care, and if so, how much. I've done this in a server farm using smaller/slower servers compared to larger/faster servers with a load balancer in front. The web and application logs can help tell the results of the experiment, once analyzed.

comment What are good heuristics to generate testing time estimates as a percentage of development time
"I need to do this because testers/QA are often not consulted about the estimates used to bill customers for new projects they request" = big mistake.

comment A bug is fixed in Development environment but cannot be validated in Integration environment
It can always be validated in the integration environment. Perhaps more setup needs to be performed, perhaps a payment needs to be executed and then backed out. You need to decide if the validation is worthwhile or not. If not, just push it to Production and be ready to back it out quickly.
