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.

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.

comment Are code reviews considered part of QA?
@dzieciou - it was mostly learning curve - it took a while before testers could find issues with regularity.
