Social Testing Is A Team Sport - Inflectra's 3rd "Hackathon" Is Here

25-Jul-2018 by Inflectra

We are putting social back into Social Testing (Competition)!

Social Testing Competition is now a team sport. Bring your tester friend to our 3rd "Hackathon" on July 25, 2018 and compete together!

At the event you will:

- meet other testers

- have fun finding bugs and issues 

- get good karma points for helping out a local start-up

- maybe even walk away with a prize!


Hosted by Inflectra, Social Testing Competition/Hackathon is a friendly contest among local software testers to test a software/app to find and report bugs. The hackathon draws inspiration from and follows the rules used in Software Testing World Cup.
