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 How can I transition into getting into QA?
This is incredibly valuable advice. In a past life as a musician/composer, I knew people who bought expensive notation software so they could "compose" - even though they knew nothing about composition. The tools are completely useless unless you know what you want to do with them.

Not worthy of an answer, but I'll plug a paper I wrote last year that may help. uploads.pnsqc.org/2011/papers/T-30_Page_paper.pdf

comment How can I use causal loop diagrams to help me test?
Closest link I could find was ics.uci.edu/~ziv/papers/fseadobe.pdf - it should give you some ideas.
