Congratulations to Benjamin Sivoravong, a CSE Junior in Computer Science, on winning 2nd place and a $200 prize in the UT Dallas CS and IEEE Reliability Society Organize IEEE Software Testing Contest. The event was held at in the Department of Computer Science at UT Dallas on January 27, 2018 and winners were announced on this website, on February 15, 2018. The event brought in 180 attendees ranging from high school and college students to industry professionals. Ben said, “It was a really fun contest over a part of software development that most people tend to overlook. Getting experience in software testing is really valuable for a job in industry and most people don’t know a lot about writing software tests.”
