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.

Do you have a reference that shows DSF is being deprecated? I'm surprised to hear that.

comment Is there an industry-standard term for choosing which tests to run?
+1 This (test selection) is the name I use as well. Test staging, however, is new to me.

comment Looking for a faulty application for training
If you don't find one, I'd be interested in the types of errors you'd like to have seeded in the app - perhaps tiered to difficulty. I could contribute (how much depends on extent of application) to writing the "faulty application".

comment USB storage emulator
I do my best. As an aside, I wrote a chapter about DSF for Dorothy Graham's upcoming book on automation case studies. Hopefully out sometime this fall...or winter...

comment Visual studio web performance testing for invalid input
I'm not super familiar with the web perf test makeup, so I'm not sure where you're adding the validation rule to try this myself. However, if & gt; (space added so it will print) works, you can probably use & quot; for the quotation mark.
