Current and Previous Responsibilities
My responsibility is managing a complete product sustanance QA team where we have lot of interactions with product support and customers, where we try and help the dev team to identify and fix the customer issues. In my previous profile, I was performing Black Box testing, compatibility testing.
A Fine Balance:
First I don't get the work into home. My family support me a lot in balancing out work life. When ever I am stressed out or tensed i spend time with my family and friends. I plan well ahead on the work based on priority. I use more automation methods to do the normal testing.
Testing is one of the best domain I feel to start with. In testing more than the programming knowledge you first will improve the domain knowledge, product knowledge and then programming if required. Testers are the people who signoff on the product whether it is of good quality.
Most of the service based companies like WIPRO, Infy, TCS provide best training on the QA/Testing domain. As now internet is been accessable by everyone, there is lot of documents related to QA/Testing available. Its very difficult mention some of them.
