“Cignithon 2021 is the first-ever Testing Hackathon that I had participated in with my team – The Powerpuff Girls. This was an amazing event and an amazing experience in terms of learning, fun, and networking. I got the opportunity to interact with the brightest minds of the country and understood their perspectives of testing and the bugs they log. The networking session was brilliant as it opened doors to interact with a lot of new people. Then joining the table networking conversations with Ralf Roeber, understanding his perspectives, and the amazing support he gave throughout the event was amazing. And winning the social media contest was the icing on the cake,” said Mahathee Dandibhotla.
“Cignithon 2021 was all about memories for me, I’m taking the best memories away and I would like all testers to participate in all such events and make the most of it. Sometimes it’s not about winning, it’s about the kind of vibe you pass to people. Somebody somewhere could be inspired through the kind of actions that you take,” she added.
Congratulations to all the winners and participants!
