London and Exeter to host next UK Zappers software testing events

TCL, the sponsors of Zappers, announces that two application testing events will take place in the UK this December. Four teams of software testers, including professionals, academics and amateurs, will compete to find bugs in either a desktop, mobile, gaming or web application at the Wellcome Collection Centre in London and the Learning Resource Centre, Harrison Building at the University of Exeter on December 3rd and 7th respectively. The sessions provide an opportunity for anyone interested in software testing to meet like-minded people, learn from one another and debate hot topics.

In November, team 'Bangers and Mash' won at the Zappers event in Leeds, finding a total of 10 bugs in Sahi web automation and testing tool; followed closely by 'Splat' with nine bugs.

The world of software testing is changing rapidly, with many companies choosing to use bespoke virtual quality assurance teams rather than hiring additional in-house QA personnel or signing long-term outsourcing contracts.
