Hyderabad: Hyderabad-based ZenQ, a software testing solutions and quality assurance provider, will organise a two-day virtual testing hackathon on December 4 and 5. The company has collaborated with The Test Tribe, a testing professionals’ community, to conduct the hackathon to bring together all software testers and engage them in bug hunting.
The hackathon received over 300 registrations from 175 companies and 13 countries, which include India, USA, UK, Canada, Pakistan, Malaysia, The Philippines, Netherlands, Ukraine, New Zealand, Hong Kong, SAR China, UAE, Thailand and others.
The participants are given challenges (apps to be tested) during the 36-hour window that span across different time zones. These challenges include testing three applications – FireCamp, MoneyHOP and Unifarm.
The owners of these three apps gave a demo of their product. All the three product owners will also be available for the next 36 hours to clarify doubts if any of the participants have. The participants have to look into those apps and find out the bugs and report before 5 pm on Sunday. The first best three testers/groups in each of these three applications will be given a cash prize of Rs 40,000, Rs 28,000 and Rs 18,000 respectively besides goodies from ZenQ.
Hemchand Srigiriraju, AVP, ZenQ, said the objective is to engage with the testing community and promote collective learning.
Individuals or a group of two are allowed to participate in the hackathon. It also provides an opportunity to network with other community testers, discuss how they test and learn from them.
