    Testers' Island Discs Ep30 - Leigh Rathbone

    Mark is joined by one of his favourite people to have a good old chat about testing, Leigh Rathbone. Leigh shares some interesting (and terrifying - Mark) insights into future challenges for software testers and how that is going to impact how we test. The new skills and technologies our industry will face brings the two onto discussing how to keep yourself relevant by learning new technologies and skills and why it’s important to make time to learn.
