I also work in QA, doing software QA using automated software testing tools. What type of QA are you working on?

Have you done any third level education?

Thank you for the questions, Fergal :)

What type of QA are you working on?


I started as a manual tester. And now testing the Java application with Selenium WebDriver.

Have you done any third level education?


I graduated as an Electronics & Communication Engineer and after that did the post graduate business administration IT degree. No third level education as of yet.

You seem to post a lot of ideas for different types of businesses. Do you mainly do so for discussion and informational purposes, or are you seeking to start a business of your own?

I am registering one LLP (Limited liability partnership) with one of my relative. And setting up a business for android app development. So most of the threads and the questions are relating to acquiring information from others so that I can avoid mistakes from the tips shared by others :D

Thanks for your answers skysnap.

I did the same myself, except I use an automated testing tool called Ranorex. I haven't used Selenium as of yet, but may learn it some day. Good to meet someone here who does the same kind of work.

That would be considered third level education here in Ireland. Perhaps the term is used differently in different countries, but in Ireland third level means any education after school, i.e. any college or university education. Those qualifications sound great, congratulations and well done.

How did you go about learning Selenium?

Manual testing jobs in India are getting frequent layoff's over the years. And my struggle to secure job put me into learning new skills such as Selenium, JMeter, NUnit, and Load Runner. And finally landed into selenium job.

What other sites do you do? I think I first noticed you on MyLot as you often responded to my posts


Yes I am active on mylot. Apart from that i spend time on Niume, Forumforu, Indiastudychannel, Upwork and freelancer. I don't know if youtube counts as other online earning sites but I also have youtube channel named - Devnami.

Reading from your comments and questions above, I have two questions:

1) Do you ever want to run a forum like FC?

2) If you have a forum, would it be just for India or global?

I'd love to run a forum like FC. In past I have managed forums on computing as an admin, also worked as a moderator on health forum. This was during 2002-2005. After that I didn't created my own forums or worked on other forums either. So forum like FC where the revenue shared with users, is something I'd love to create if god gives me that strength.

2) If you have a forum, would it be just for India or global?


Obviously Global. I like diversity. I have learned a lot from people around the world. I'd definitely keep things global.

That's a good range of skills on widely used testing tools, well done on doing all that. Did you teach yourself using online courses, or some other way?

I learned HP QTP through one of the coaching institute here. But it turned out to be very expensive for the value offered. So I decided any future skill to be taken online and not to waste money on offline tutors and coaching institutes. So selenium and other skills learned through youtube, udemy and few other sites.
