2nd Inflectra Hackathon - Software Testing Competition

17-May-2018 by Inflectra

We are hosting our 2nd Hackathon: Social Testing event and you are invited!


Social Testing Hackathon is a friendly contest among local software testers to test a software/app to find and report issues and bugs. Hosted by Inflectra, the Hackathon will place on May 17, 2018 at WeWork Tyson's Corner. Just like Inflectra's inaugural software testing event in DC in March 2018, the 2nd hackathon also follows the rules used in Software Testing World Cup (STWC). 

Please register using one of the following platforms: Eventbrite | Meet-up
