As much as I love to code, my passion is in testing. I truly enjoy when I get to marry the 2.

I'm currently in my ideal setting where 130% of my time is allocated. I get to deploy 2-3 times per week and still work on building new and exciting applications.

I started out testing in the electronic manufacturing field. After a long long break, I ended up moving to a UAT coordinator role at the company that I was with and my passion for testing was ignited. I haven't looked back at other non-testing roles since.

Are you changing the database tables every week as well? Otherwise, I don't see the need for a new query.

comment testing RESTful webservice with kerberos authentication
Ended up doing some more work with this, and never could get it to work with SoapUI, but I did find that this worked well with a similar tool that we ended up putting together for testing.

comment Test cases in source code
Must be nice to be from a big corporation and have that luxury. Due to SOX controls, our QA team is unable to have write access to the code.

comment What proportion of different types of software testing does your team use?
I think that a little bit more context may help here. Depending on the type of application, technologies used, etc, answers can be polar opposites.
