About the Software Testing Bowl

The Software Testing Bowl (#testbowl) is a software testing tournament that aims to crown the best software testing team in the United States, while also helping a worthy non-profit improve the quality of their application through crowd-testing.

The event is being held at STPcon, where software test professionals from all over the globe come to gather and share best practices. The Software Testing Bowl will be an opportunity for them to meet and network, win prizes, and meet testers in the Washington, DC tech community.

The Software Testing Bowl takes the ideas of Inflectra's Social Testing hackathons to the next level, and is based on Inflectra's unique experience supporting Software Testing Events in other countries under the rubric of the Software Testing World Cup (STWC).

"...This is an exciting opportunity for Inflectra to launch the inaugural software testing bowl at STPCon. I am excited that we will have the opportunity to host a national software testing event. Many other countries have had similar events in the past, and we hope this event will inspire a relaunch of the global Software Testing World Cup (STWC)." (Adam Sandman, Director)
