Amazon Launches AWS BugBust With A Goal To Fix One Million Software Bugs
AWS BugBust is a platform for organizing and managing events for finding and fixing bugs in your software. BugBust includes features like challenges, built-in leaderboards, and more.
This though isn't just about trying to get one million bugs fixed in open-source software to improve its quality, but for Amazon's part they are hoping to get more developers using their AWS tooling. In particular, BugBust is based around Amazon CodeGuru Reviewer and Amazon CodeGuru Profiler. With these tools there is machine learning and automated reasoning involved in aiming to help find software bugs. Amazon meanwhile is rewarding developers with t-shirts, jackets, and the top finalists invited to AWS re:invent. For software projects signing up for the challenge, Amazon makes CodeGuru Reviewer and CodeGuru Profiler free of charge for the first thirty days.
