I'm a long time tester and developer working for Microsoft where I'm currently a Principal SDET on the XBox team.

I've also worked on Microsoft Lync, Windows CE, Windows, and spent some time as Microsoft's Director of Test Excellence.

I am the lead author on the Microsoft Press book "How We Test Software at Microsoft", contributed chapters to a few other books (including "Beautful Testing") and frequently speak to, consult with, or teach classes to software developers and testers.

If you're "testing at the end", you're not really doing Agile. Maybe that's ok for your context, but it's worth thinking about.

+1 for the 'mons. I added the entire sysinternal suite, because there's so much more there valuable for testers.

comment Best practices for organising and naming test cases
It's a goal, not a requirement. But when a failure is not diagnosable from the log, I/we add additional logging to make diagnosis easier in the future.
