    Hello CF. First post here. I would like to say "Hi" and let everyone know how helpful I have found this site to be. I have been working for a software company for the past 5 years now. 1 year in the Support department and 4 years in the QA department. And before that I worked first line support for an internet company for a year. I have an Associates Degree in Information Systems from a technical college. Lately I have been thinking I want to move from the software side and do the more with networking (which is the route I wanted to take out of school). I don't have much experience administering servers but I plan to change that in the next couple of years. Even if it means just working more with the other departments at my company by offering free assistance. But hopefully I can make a full time move into our IT department.

    I wanted to start working towards this goal and work on getting some certifications as well. I started researching on the web and that's how I found this site. I am studying for my A+ now an I hope to take the test in 2 or 3 months. Then I am going to move onto the Net+, followed by the MCDST. After getting these certs and hopefully more experience, I'll move onto the MCSA and MCSE. But that is a few years down the road.

    Well, I just wanted to indroduce myself and thank everyone for the great knowledge and advice people post on this site. I have found it all really helpfull. I hope to be an active member on this site and to take everyone's knowledge to help better myself. Thanks again!

    Hello and welcome!

    I have a question for you though, do you know how hard is to enter the QA industry ?

    I am asking this because I also find interesting the QA in the gaming industry and always wanted to be a Games Tester too.
    Any info would be apreciated!

    :p

    Sorry. I don't have any knowledge of QA in the gaming industry. I work with a software that is designed for the day to day operations for a business (Scheduling, Point of Sale, Reporting, etc). EA Sports was opening a branch near me and I really wanted to go work there! But they were only looking for part time testers. :(
