Social Testing - A Software Testing Competition

14-Mar-2018 by Inflectra

Time to dust off your software testing hat and join us for our inaugural Social Testing Competition - a friendly competition between software test enthusiasts to find bugs in a software application or website.

Modeled after Software Testing World Cup (STWC), the Social Testing Competition is Inflectra's new initiative to nurture, support and strengthen the DC/DMV-area software testing community, while using the best practices and lessons learned from well-established testing events, such as Israel Software Testing Cup 2017 (ISTC) and STWC.
