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 Deployment Testing
I'm having a bit of a hard time understanding as well. Not sure if you mean post-implementation testing, or testing your deployment mechanism.

comment Why is separating functional and non-functional test important (or not)?
This is exactly the way that I've always looked at it as well, although I haven't seen the term used since the last binder sized Business Requirements Document that I received. I've found that in agile-, context-driven environments that the distinction tends to be removed entirely

Haven't had a chnace to touch this project since asking this, however, I've used this technique in a few other circumstances since and it seems as though it will work.

comment Installation testing is part of functional or non-functional testing?
+1 for reminding me of a scenario that I had forgotten about and for a really good answer.

I like the way that you flushed this out to make your answer more specific. I'd give another +1 if I could.

comment Automate verification of emails being received
Yet to be able to get non-outlook clients to work. As for the log file, it is a great idea, however, our business sponsors also need to be able to see it work. Currently, for any email addresses that it has rules to always send with, we're using the same local, but different domain. It is a really good idea though.

That's correct. I would need to be able to read the message in the inbox.

comment testing RESTful webservice with kerberos authentication
Although I see a lot of potential for it in the future, this doens't seem to help me out as I am attempting to impersonate myself. the main problem being that IE and soapUI don't seem to authenticate properly.

Cool. This looks helpful. I probably won't get around to trying it until this weekend though.
