Mark speaks with Stu Johnson who is passionate in equal measures about all things testing and all things Scandinavian (as shown in his song picks). The two discuss leading a culture of learning and building a community of practice both inside his community and in the wider testing community. Stu also shares how an introverted person can still contribute in ways that don’t result in having to speak to a large crowd of scary people!
