What is TestingCup in 2024?

TestingCup is one-of-the-kind competition dedicated to professionals in the new technology industry, primarily software testers, and all individuals professionally involved in programming and ensuring the quality of information systems.

TestingCup brings together the software testing community to, through active and healthy competition, select and award the Best Software Testers.

Its participants face the challenge of dealing with MrBuggy, an application containing hidden bugs that originated from actual mistakes made by developers.

Are you ready to become a champion in your company?


TestingCup was more than a championship. It was a one-of-a-kind event organized in Poland every year from 2013 to 2020, where the participants challenged their software testing skills in the Championship and participated in a world-class international Conference attended by renowned software testing experts like Gojko Adzic, David Burns, Michael Bolton, Rick Tracy, or Zeger Van Hese.

The conference program was curated by a committee led by authorities such as Rob Lambert and James Lyndsay. It's essential to mention the originator and main organizer of the entire event, Radosław Smilgin, a well-known specialist in the Polish testing community.

The event was attended by employees from large international corporations as well as individual participants. All of them had to demonstrate creativity, logical thinking, and testing knowledge to get a high score during the competition.

Each edition of the event unveils unique venues, from the PGE International Stadium in Warsaw to the International Congress Centre in Katowice or MTP Poznań Expo. Also, every annual conference concluded with an awards ceremony and spectacular after-parties.

Today, TestingCup is open to everyone who, whether at work or driven by passion, cares about software quality, serving as a workshop for companies. Mr Buggy, on the other hand, has evolved over the years and transformed into the first practical exam dedicated to software testers.
