Inflectra was proud to sponsor and attend the DevOpsDays DC 2022 at the Ronald Reagan and International Trade Center in downtown DC. It was proven the DevOps community was thrilled to be back in person for the first time since 2019, as the event had a great turnout of attendees. During this two-day event, attendees were able to attend sessions, visit sponsor booths, and most importantly, network with others in this shared space.
Here are some highlights Inflectra’s attendees observed at the conference.Read More

A few weeks ago, Inflectra’s CEO - Adam Sandman, was invited for an Interview with Nathan Latka - a serial entrepreneur and the CEO of FounderPath. Unlike what you’d expect from an interview with a tech company founder - i.e., a pre-cleared set of interview questions - the two launched into an honest discussion in less than 30 seconds after meeting each other for the first time. The result is a candid view of Inflectra, its business model, company culture, profits, business practices, and its founder - Adam Sandman - aka - “The Real Unicorn.”
Find out how & why Adam got this nickname in a short (admittedly, very fast-paced) conversation below!Read More

***This event has been cancelled by the organizers ***
As the winter holidays approach, we are looking for new ways to give back to communities around us.
So this holiday season, Inflectra is sponsoring Meetup Mashup for a Cause, an initiative by Washington DC Scrum User Group. The event is in support of Homestretch - a program that helps address the root causes of homelessness and strives to reverse homelessness for families participating in the program.
Meetup Mashup for a Cause will take place on Monday, December 17, 2018, from 6:00 to 8:30 PM at the Arlington Tech Exchange.

On March 14, 2018 Inflectra hosted its inaugural software testing event (hackathon) called Social Testing Competition at WeWork Manhattan Laundry in Washington, DC.
The event drew enthusiasm from the local software tester community with around 25 guest-testers. The group used a simplified version of Inflectra’s award-wining test management software - SpiraTest and tested a mobile app called Sickweather. The group was tasked with logging “technical bugs” and “usability issues” as two separate categories of incidents. (Technical bugs were worth 2 points and identified (reproducible) errors in the functioning of the application, whereas usability issues were worth 1 point and noted strange or confusing app behaviors.)
After about two hours of testing the app, the group collectively logged close to 250 issues into Spiratest’s centralized databank. (The unified test report will be delivered to the app owner for review and follow up).
By the end of the night, three winners were selected based on the points scored for the issues uncovered in the app.
We would like to take a moment here to recognize all women technologists who showed up, tested hard and walked away with prizes! Pleased to have you participate.Read More

If you are a software company, like us, building and releasing software is pretty much up there with coffee, chocolate, and Game of Thrones. But our digital fortress could no longer contain our desire to make new friends in our own neighborhood of Silver Spring, MD. And while there is no shortage of #awesome Meet-Up groups and Eventbrite get-togethers in DC/MD/VA area, we are using our resources to make software testing fun and accessible for everyone who is interested locally.
We are weaving a web of community connections through our regular coder internship program, our webinar series, and through our meetup group - Technology and Innovation Meet-up Group in Silver Spring, MA.Read More

One of our New Year’s Resolutions for 2017 was to support and nurture the tech community in our home area – Washington, DC and Silver Spring, Maryland (a hip superb of DC where our office is physically located).
So while everyone else today is talking about the Presidential Inauguration, we’re going to bring some optimistic light relief to recant our first attendance at the popular DC Tech Meetup group. This was our first time attending, and it was great to see the local DC Tech scene in action:Read More
