Transform your bug bash into an AWS BugBust

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

You can set up private AWS BugBust virtual events quickly and easily in the AWS Console, with built-in leaderboards, challenges, and rewards. BugBusters (your developers) from around the world join your BugBust events to fix as many bugs as possible, score points, and to contribute to busting 1 million bugs in the AWS BugBust Challenge. Join the mission to exterminate 1 million bugs today.

Start busting now

Get started by going head-to-head with your teammates in your own private AWS BugBust events and contribute to the global challenge to fix 1 million bugs and save $100M in tech debt, globally. The more events you run, the more points you can win for busting bugs.

Step 1

Step 1: Create your AWS BugBust event

Nominate an administrator from your organization to set up your AWS BugBust event. In just a few clicks, you can create your own challenges, invite named participants, and communicate your prizes. From there, use Amazon CodeGuru to scan your code to quickly find the swarm of bugs ready for your team to start busting.

Step 2

Step 2: Calling BugBusters

Once you create an event, AWS BugBust will send an email link to your team to create individual BugBuster profiles in the AWS Console – this is where bugs busted, points scored, and milestone achievements are logged. The BugBust event dashboard is where you’ll view the bugs ready for busting and points scored by your team of BugBusters.

Step 3

Step 3: Bust bugs and score points

The clock starts ticking as soon as a bug is claimed and the race is on to fix as many bugs as possible in your event. Each time developers fix a bug and save money, they will score points to climb their organization’s private BugBust leaderboard and see how they rank among their teammates. Higher points are awarded for higher severity bugs. The more points scored the higher up the event leaderboard they will climb, until you stop the clock and crown the winning BugBuster.
