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 How can my team move away from record-and-playback when not everyone has scripting experience?
+1 for the last paragraph. Forcing all testers to start automating is a great way to kill the spirit of some amazing testers.

comment UI test automation tools for Windows Phone 8 metro apps?
Took a look at the site out of curiosity. They unfortunately only have 3 Windows Phone devices, all C900's, which won't run Windows Phone 8. I can see this service being possibly useful for other OS's however.

comment Should tester fix bugs?
In theory, there would be more than one tester on these teams. I'll maybe see about editing my answer later today, but, there does need to be some sort of process in place for these circumstances.

comment Developers have code kata to practice skills. What test equivalents are there?
My main take-aways were more learning other approaches to classic things like bug reports. Before reporting a bug, I would always look through the bugs that were already there so that I wouldn't create a duplicate. There are so many different ways to create a report as simple as this, each with it's own benefits depending on the situation.
