About BugMania

The software landscape is changing by the day, driven by technology evolutions and innovations across disciplines. It is becoming omnipresent impacting end users in unimaginable ways. While software BiGos (yes, our age old "defects" or "bugs", now have a new fiction name), are searched for and eliminated as much as possible, before release to end users, at the epicentre of all of software evolution, BiGos continue to deep seat themselves in applications. BiGos trace back to the origin of the human race - they have existed since then in one form or another - they were first found in the human brain (the first computer) and we have known of them from the mythological days to the present day. In the mythological era, there were demons who were wired with zillions of BiGo's in their mind while in the current day we have fanatics in varied incarnations.

As humans started developing software these BiGo's found their way into software systems too. BiGos are getting sophisticated by the day, making it more complex and time consuming to find and eliminate them. We at App Testing Experts are organizing a BugMania event, to invite you from the human race to come find and crush these BiGos - here's an opportunity to pride yourself and be rewarded as the highest BiGo finder.
