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.

comment Testing PDF files with Selenium
The question is a little confusing. The blog post that you reference seems to answer the question in the context of the question. As the pdf document is opened, to the bet of my knowledge, in an extension of the browser, I don't see how Selenium would interact with it, but, will not post as an answer as I could be wrong there. Great blog post by the way.

comment Is there a way to copy a bug submitted in one mantis bug tracker instance to another?
Ah, now I understand, and feel for you. The first one that I found was this one which looks like it would do what you need. bugtracker.morinie.fr/mantis/dokuwiki/…

comment Should data validation be automated in a rapid development environment
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.
