On the other hand, all 3 participants from APU who took part in the Bug Hunt emerged as the Top 3 winners at the competition, based on their brilliant software testing documents which were produced on the 5th of December 2014 at Wisma Genting. All 3 winners, Lee Chia Ping, Tan Wai Loong and Lai Wen Leong, are recent Software Engineering graduates of APU. Apart from the cash prizes of RM3,000, RM2,000 and RM1,000 respectively, the winners were also entitled to a job offer from E-Genting.
