Global App Testing- a company for conducting tests through crowdsourcing – is organizing Nigeria’s first Testathon set to be held in Lagos on June 26th.
“A Testathon is like a hackathon but specifically for testers”, said Owais Peer, co-founder of Global App Testing. “A lot of our tester community have told us they don’t get invited to hackathons, despite it being such an important part of the developer community”.
The Testathon event aims to bring together the best testers in the world so they can learn from best practice, network and win prizes whilst trying to break real apps.
“We’ll have 50 testers from Lagos all competing to find bugs in some great apps”, noted Owais. “We’ve organised events with Dropbox in San Francisco, Spotify in Stockholm and now it’s time for Facebook in Lagos. The support from the testing community has been great”.
The best testers will be awarded prizes for a whole host of categories including ‘Best QA’ and ‘Best Quality Bug Report’.
After mixing with the best testers in the UK, US and Sweden the Nigerian testing community is going to be put to the test. “It’ll be a big challenge to find great bugs on the day but when you put together the best testers in the world, you’re bound to find something”, said Owais.
