30 Days of Automation in Testing

30 Days of Automation in Testing Challenge... let's do this!

Our famous 30 Days of Testing Challenge is back! 

The theme this time is Automation in Testing and this challenge has been kindly sponsored by SmartBear... thank you!

These challenges are a great way to learn on your own, as a team effort or join in online with the wonderful Ministry of Testing community.

Below is a list of 30 challenges (plus a bonus challenge!), one for each day of the month. Download the PDF below. Save it somewhere. Print it out. Stick it on your wall. Let’s do this!

What are the rules?

The goal is to tick off as many of the challenges as you can. You can do this in your own timeframe, or you can join us in our joint community effort throughout the month of July. We will be encouraging the community to share their progress on this challenge from the 1st of July 2018

You may have an image to share, a blog post, a video, status update... whatever it is, come and participate!

Here is how you can share your progress:
