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.

By WebDriver, do you mean in it's current incarnation after merging with Selenium? If so, you've described my current automation setup.

comment What is the relation between development hours and testing hours?
Actually, the team that I currently work on has no problems giving 1:1 or sometimes greater. We've been bitten by poor quality in the past, and spend the extra time to try to ensure that we always deliver nothing but the best.

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.
