I am very interested in adding a quality assurance program to my company's development life cycle. We work with asp.net C# and classic asp for web applications. We also do work in Flash. The quality assurance program will focus primarily on bug testing but can expand into performance and load testing. I am interested in learning about.

1. Recommendations for qa testing software tools for web applications in C# .NET, classic asp and /or flash.

2. Recommendations for what to look for when hiring testers.

3. Recommendations for tester training.

Please let me know if you have any insights.
