Based on people’s reaction to this idea, I have the impression it is many people’s first 30 day challenge. Or at least the first one that is work oriented. This has been particularly visible in the number of questions and concerns about specific challenges throughout the month, some as far away as the last week! Because of this, I have both a hope and a goal for the challenge and I will share both.
My hope for the challenge is that participants are as creative in their completion as the participants in the original #30DaysOfTesting. When the challenge to attend an event came up, but people were living in places without meetups/conferences? Checkout how Jean Ann (@JA_Harrion) found online interactions to join in on:
Or when trying out (potentially new) skills like mindmapping, who said it has to be about software testing! Check out how Danny Dainton (@DannyDainton) made a really fun and applicable mindmap about expecting his newest family addition:
And my goal for the next 30 days is to track my own and others outputs to help encourage longer term impacts. Some of the challenges like (12) Share one thing all quality focused teams should do and (22) Share one way you can support/volunteer in your region have the potential to see impacts far beyond September. While it will take a lot of energy just to complete the 30 days, I want to have an eye for the long term impacts of this challenge and help highlight and elevate all the amazing outputs I am sure will be created!
