Every year, as June nears, we look forward to catching up with our friends and colleague in software testing and DevOps communities of Israel during a week-long tech-fest known as DevGeekWeek. Much like in 2017, #teamInflectra will support DevGeekWeek 2018 and the 2nd Israel Software Testing Cup (ISTC) this year.
The 2nd Israel Software Testing Cup follows in the footsteps of Software Testing World Cup (also Inflectra's own Social Testing (TM) Competition) and brings together software testers from all over Israel. Software testers get together to compete in two-tier contest to identifying bugs and issues in a software.
In 2018, the ISTC preliminaries - first tier event - were held online on April 27, 2018 and gathered 24 teams who reported 425 issues. ISTC2018 used Inflectra's award-winning SpiraPlan platform to track and report bugs and issues found in the software under test (SUT) during the competition. Spira platform has been a trusted software test management tool for the ISTC event organizer and software testing queen - Anna Luckovsky for a number of years now.
ISTC2018 Finals (second tier) are taking place on June 18 as part of QAGeekWeek2018. The winners will receive high value prizes. Inflectra will add its own prizes to the awards listed on the event website.
DevGeekWeek/QAGeekWeek is a convention that brings together hundreds of software developers and testers. This year the program runs from June 17 to 21 and offers some 75 seminars led by over 50 speakers.
At DevGeekWeek you can hear Inflectra's talks within a number of tracks:
