‘War with Bugs’: global software testing competition coming soon

Bengaluru, India-headquartered Test Insane Technologies Private Ltd is hosting a global software testing challenge dubbed ‘War with Bugs’ on 10 October 2015. The month long event is a platform for promising software testers and a challenge for established ones to explore the nitty-gritty of exploratory software testing.

Giving back to the software testing industry

Test Insane Technologies was founded in the 2014 by software tester Santhosh Tuppad. Their brainchild ‘War with Bugs’ is a way to give back to the industry and in the process come in contact with testers, not just locally but globally, who share the same zeal and obsession.

Deeming himself a proud bragger and eagerly waiting for War with Bugs to commence, Santhosh said, “We wouldn’t deny this being a part of building our brand but at the same time War with Bugs is a way for us to know how much testers out there love exploring and innovating. We’ve already received around 1000 registrations from numerous testers and are really looking forward to the launch date of the competition.”

Cash prize

Registered software testers will have to test the software(s) provided to them at the beginning of the competition and will be judged on the ideas they come up with to report as well as fix the bug in that software. The one tester whose exploratory and adventurous testing skills are the most enthralling will win cash prize of INR 1 Lakh (£950).

“Having just one winner makes the competition tougher but at the end of the day it’s all about how kick-ass you are,” added Santhosh.
