Required Reading
Some good online resources are professionaltester.com, softwaremag.com. One could pick a copy of Software Testing by ron patton for starters and gradually move towards quality assurance books. Works of William Edwards Deming and Joseph m. juran would be of immense help.
Degrees that Matter
ISEB for sure helps in strengthening basics. QAI global institute based out of Orlando, Florida offers various certifications in Software Testing and Software Quality Assurance which are highly recommendable.

Role Model
Ratan tata – he says it’s easy to get at the top but, what’s important is, how do you remain at the top. So true. His thought leadership sets him apart from others. Not just that he’s put his thoughts into action, just see where tata enterprises is today.
Essential Advice
Get your basics right and build strong foundation in your area of expertise. Learn and evolve on continuous basis. This will help you to scale up professionally as the years go by.
Areas for the Future
The greener pastures would be in the areas of mobile apps(we are already witnessing this), cloud testing cos most organizations are working towards reducing their spends on operations and support, DWH/BI spends are going up too, so db/etl testing skills would be in high demand
