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" & 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.
