Amazon Announces AWS BugBust, A Global Competition To Fix 1 Mn Software Bugs

Amazon Web Services has announced the AWS BugBust Challenge, the world’s first global competition for developers to remove one million software bugs. Developers can join the challenge by creating an AWS BugBust event for their organisation in the Amazon CodeGuru console—and compete for prizes by fixing bugs in their applications. The top ranks in the AWS BugBust leaderboard stand to win achievement badges, exclusive prizes, and a chance for an expense-paid trip to attend AWS re:Invent 2021 in Las Vegas.

AWS BugBust is the first global bug-busting challenge for developers to collectively eliminate 1 million software bugs and $100 million in technical debt for their organisation.

“Hundreds of thousands of AWS customers are building and deploying new features to applications each day at high velocity and managing complex code at high volumes. It’s difficult to get time from skilled developers to quickly perform effective code reviews since their busy building, innovating, and pushing out deployments,” said Swami Sivasubramanian, VP, Amazon Machine Learning, AWS.

“Today, we are excited to announce an entirely new approach to help developers improve code quality, eliminate bugs, and boost application performance while saving millions of dollars in application resource costs. With the AWS BugBust Challenge, developers can use Amazon CodeGuru to spend less time finding common coding mistakes and more time having fun and competing to improve their applications and save their companies a lot of money,” he added.

Amazon CodeGuru is a developer tool that uses machine learning to identify bugs and find the most expensive lines of code in applications. Amazon CodeGuru helps developers automate code reviews and application profiling with its two components, Amazon CodeGuru Reviewer (which uses machine learning to flag common issues in code and provide specific recommendations on remediation) and Amazon CodeGuru Profiler (which uses machine learning to identify the most expensive lines of code in applications).
