Toolkit for Test competitions

As part of our talk at the Nordic Testing Days 2016 about “Bake your own STWC (Software Testing World Cup)”, we presented a checklist for the different roles involved in a testing competition.

If you plan to participate or organize a testing competition, this can be a guideline, what to consider and keep an eye.

Player

  • Build a team
  • Find your way
  • Know your tools
  • Practice
  • Keep up to date

Organizer

  • Event size (company vs. global)
  • Framework (team size, timebox, restrictions)
  • Infrastructure (online vs. Offline, chat vs. room)
  • Gamification/recognition
  • „Supporters“, people who like that idea and assist
  • Don’t restrict, where it is not needed.
  • Have fun and take away learnings for yourself.
  • Feedback! Actively look for feedback. Adjust on it.

Judge

  • Time investment
  • Discuss & define the judging criteria
  • Ask for feedback, discuss in group
  • Be neutral
  • Avoid conflict of interest

Supporter / Sponsors

  • Money
  • Rooms
  • SUT (Software under Test)

Official Announcement – STWC – Software Testing World Cup

We are proud to announce the first annual Software Testing World Cup (STWC)!

Imagine a world test competition, held over the internet, on your continent, in a time zone that is reasonable for you, on a Saturday, with local judges you know and respect.

STWC is a global event with a sportive, competitive character for the testing community.
It will consist of a continental round of testing, done online, so that all the testing professionals out there have the chance to participate.

The continental champions will be invited to one of the best testing conferences in Europe; the Agile Testing Days 2014 in Potsdam, Germany!
There they will test it out to crown the winning team and get their hands on the STWC trophy!

All flavors or testing can participate and form a team to enter the competition.
