Today, we are excited to announce AWS BugBust, the world’s first global competition for Java and Python developers to collectively fix 1 million bugs. Eliminate software errors and save millions of dollars using Amazon CodeGuru, and win prizes and glory in the first annual AWS BugBust Challenge. Let the bug busting begin!

AWS BugBust provides an easy and fun solution to transform bug bashes, foster team building, and bring friendly competition to improve code quality and application performance. To help find and exterminate bugs, AWS BugBust utilizes ML-powered developer tools - Amazon CodeGuru Reviewer and Amazon CodeGuru Profiler - to automatically scan code to weed out gnarly bugs and gamifies fixing and eliminating them.

With just a few clicks, customers can set up private AWS BugBust virtual events quickly and easily in the AWS Console, with built-in leaderboards, challenges, and rewards. BugBusters (or developers) from around the world join private BugBust events to fix as many bugs as possible, score points, and to contribute to busting 1 million bugs in the AWS BugBust Challenge. BugBusters earn badges and rewards as they climb the leaderboard, and the top 10 BugBusters win an expenses paid trip to AWS re:Invent 2021. Join the mission to exterminate 1 million bugs today.

AWS BugBust is available today in the US East (N. Virginia) with availability in additional regions coming soon, and customers pay only for their use of Amazon CodeGuru. To get started with AWS BugBust, visit the AWS BugBust page.
