detailed 100 winners of the Ultrafast Cross Browser Testing Hackathon.
The hackathon hosted more than 2,200 software developers, quality
engineers, and QA professionals from dozens of companies and countries
around the world. The event ran from June 1st to July 7th, 2020, and
collected more than 1,600 hours of cross browser testing data.
"Cross platform testing is hard, it's no wonder why so many companies
skip this," said Oluseun Orebajo, Lead Test Practitioner at Fujitsu and
Diamond Winner of the Hackathon. "The efforts to implement a
comprehensive strategy using traditional approaches are astronomical.
Applitools has totally changed the game with the Ultrafast Grid. What
took me days of work with other approaches only took minutes with
Ultrafast Grid! Not only was it easier, it's smarter, faster, and
provides more coverage than any other solution out there. I'll be
recommending the Ultrafast Grid to all of the clients I work with from
The software engineering community was challenged to author cross
browser and cross device tests against a real-world app using both their
preferred legacy cloud testing solution and Applitools Ultrafast Grid
and Visual AI. Contestants could use any major test framework including
Cypress, Selenium, WebdriverIO, and TestCafe. Programming language
evaluated based on the following criteria:
Ultrafast Cross Browser Testing Hackathon was a wonderful experience
which was challenging in multiple aspects and offered a great
opportunity to learn cross browser visual testing," said Tarun Narula,

Hackathon. "It's really astounding to realize the coding time and effort
that can be saved. Hands down, Applitools Ultrafast Grid is the tool to
go for when making the shift to modern cross environment testing. Cheers
to the team that made this event possible."
"At Applitools, we constantly strive to empower and educate people with
modern technology such as Visual AI. By gamifying the learning
experience through our Hackathons and having them compare Ultrafast Grid
to the traditional approaches they are familiar with, engineers learn
and decide for themselves how these innovative solutions will impact
their career and company," said Raja Rao, Sr. Director and Head of
Growth Marketing at Applitools. "We are truly grateful for the response
from the global engineering community and to learn through their direct
experience and feedback how much better the Ultrafast Grid actually is
compared to traditional approaches to cross browser testing."
