This job was a straight up burst capacity initiative
Project InfoSoftware Test Automation
This job was a straight up burst capacity initiative, to get more historical, but still valid, manual test cases, assessed for a time savings through automation, and if so, automate them, and add them to the nightly build from source control.
This was a UFT Environment, (when the job started, it was QTP, and just a few weeks later, the name changed, and we moved over to UFT from that point, and going forward)
I would also log bugs that were found, verify them and update after fixes were delivered, and take other manual testers logged bugs, and add automated tests for them.
