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)
During the past week, Team Inflectra had the amazing opportunity to visit Israel for the inaugural Israeli Software Testing Cup (ISTC).

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).
