Test-a-Thon: Test to Make a Difference



Find Bugs and Make a Difference

This year STAREAST is teaming up with Humanitarian Toolbox to find some bugs and make the world a better place. Visit the interactive Test-a-thon between Wednesday, May 7 and Thursday, May 8 to help test the code in applications that have become vital resources for many disaster relief organizations. Use the skills and techniques you're learning at the conference to make a difference. Compete with your fellow testers to find bugs, join speakers to practice skills and techniques presented in class, participate in discussion groups, and more!

  • Kick-off the Test-a-thon with pizza and beer on Tuesday, May 6 at 5:30 p.m.
  • Find the most bugs and you can win 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes
