Testathon LogoYou have always heard about Hackathon where developers will be involved. Now, it is a happy news that there is a testathon which is similar to hackathon, but for testers. It is one of the milestone in software testing community. Without stealing the credits, I had the similar plan and the same name (“Testathon”) in back of my mind before few years. Nevertheless, I am happy that finally it is here by someone and that someone is Mr. Fahim Sachedina. Testathon are the folks who organized world’s first testathon.

If you are wondering, what’s in it for me? Here is the answer,
• You will test with some of the other cool testers
• You will win prizes, yes even cash prize & much more

Visit Testathon website at and you will get more details.


I have been as a software tester for over 5 years. I am a hands-on tester and I've been winning bug battles & testing competitions across the world. I am a testing enthusiast, who conducts free workshops on security testing across India (Covered locations: Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad & Chennai. Invite him to come to your location), and monthly meets for testers in Bengaluru. I am also an avid testing blogger.

My interests include traveling, driving my SUV, health & fitness and many others. I mentor budding entrepreneurs, testers, teams in any profession.
