Do you know what day it is today? It is THAT day. That day when it would all end… That day when the Testing Challenge created by Ministry of Testing is over. Over, I tell you!
I guess you’re now going to say “Testophiliac, don’t you know how to count? There is one more day left, the bonus day!” That’s what you wanted to say that, didn’t you?! I had a feeling…
Well, the reasons why I combined the two is because:
- I couldn’t separate the challenges. Day 30 said to:
Give someone positive feedback.
and day 31 (the bonus day) said to:
Share your 30-day challenge experience on Youtube, Instagram, Twitter or a blog post!
- I’m going to the seaside and starting my vacation. In fact, I’m at the seaside now! Sending many waves to you! Not big, big waves, just normal-sized ones.
The bonus day has been fully achieve, as I’m writing this and have written everything on my blog. It’s self-explanatory. And because it is the last day of the Testing Challenge, I would like to give the positive feedback to *drum rolls* every tester out there! Everyone who has participated in this challenge, blogging/tweeting/facebooking (is this a verb?) and others every day for the past month, you freaking rock!
For the ones who haven’t managed to finish or update daily or who just planned to participate, but couldn’t: we get it, life gets in the way of things! But if you continue to learn how to test better and you stick to it, congrats to you, as well! You can find the motivation to get better at your craft and, who knows, maybe there’s going to be another challenge in the future? Don’t give up!
I would like to thank Rosie Sherry from Ministry of Testing for building up this challenge, it was really inspiring and I bet a lot of us have learned a bit more about us as testers and as people! Also, thanks to Tabara de Testare for existing and for keeping its members close and always helping them out. Thanks to Daniel Knott from Adventures in QA for opening up my eyes on mobile testing through his book, “Hands-on Mobile App Testing” (I still haven’t finished it yet, but I promise I will!) and indirectly giving me an idea for a project. Thanks to Neil Studd for his Weekend Testing Europe session and his cheerfulness. And just thank you to everyone who liked/shared/tweeted about the event or what I or others have said! It was extremely helpful and I think it connected everyone to everyone else much more than before.
As for the blog, I will continue to write on it, hopefully something worth reading. Nothing too serious, because humour’s the best, but I hope that something helpful. The next blogpost will be after I have dipped by toes into the sea so many times that I could be considered a fish!
So, thank you to all and congratulations to all! See you in a short time and don’t forget to:
