Drivers of the testing community ?
Are (IMHO) the testing heroes..
In my recent visit to Philadelphia I realized something new, importance of heroes
Every idea, change needs a change agent, a leader or group of leaders
Without those leaders the movement / change dies
Our testing community is no different, our thought leaders (heroes) have been one of the main cause of evolution in the field
Linked video in the comments has a few of my thoughts around why they are important..
