Top 51 World Continuous Testing Leaders and Software Testing Blogs to Follow in 2018

As we’re close to the first half of 2018, it is a great time for quality managers, developers in the mobile and web industry, and executives to freshen up their list of followers and blogs they follow or at least validate that they are not missing an important one – It’s free to follow :).

Why is that important? The market is undergoing dramatic changes towards DevOps, Continuous Testing and modern testing processes, and the below folks (and myself included (@ek121268) can be a great supporting asset in practitioners journey to mature CI, CD, and CT.
