Sometimes, we have to change.
I have been publishing in the QE Unit for more than a year now, using this dedicated QE Unit Medium account,
It worked until now without problems, but I had set a deadline to adapt the Medium scope for this quarter, and here we are.
This article shares why QE Unit content will now be available in a Publication and what you need to know about that change.
Follow the QE Unit for more Quality Engineering.
Why switch from a Medium account to a Publication?
We act based on purpose and opportunity.
The purpose of the QE Unit is to accelerate the deployment of Quality Engineering for organizations in search of Quality at Speed software.
The opportunity is composed of 3 reasons:
- Medium is about individuals sharing, not generic account
- Publications facilitate other writers to contribute
- Actual results can be significantly improved to increase our reach.
With more than 100 articles and 180 followers, I have numerous improvements to make for the content visibility, reach and value.
As a community, our contributions depend on the number of participants and their ratio of interactions—pushing us to find ways to expand.
The QE Unit Publication is one of the improvements to expand our community.
What is expected for the QE Unit Publication?
The QE Unit Publication is a space dedicated to contributions of the Quality Engineering community.
Anyone willing to share content on Quality Engineering can contact me, propose a draft article, and even ask for help in structuring one.
I am the only one managing the publication as of today, and happy to collaborate with Quality Engineering enthusiasts.
From now on, I will publish Quality Engineering articles directly in the Publication, not anymore in this QE Unit account.
What will change for the existing QE account?
This existing QE Unit account will remain for 2 months from the QE Unit Publication, I will assess from there if it makes sense to keep it or not.
I will republish some of the most read articles—also improving them—to the QE Unit Publication to accelerate our transition,
Other articles will remain available here in this account and on the QE Unit official website.
The new content will be available on the Publication, hence a switch is needed from your end.
The easiest way to switch to don’t miss any content is to:
Additionally, feel free to contribute and you can also directly follow the QE Unit here.
See you there, with more peers.
