Inside ReadyAPI - Documentation Team

We continue to introduce our amazing ReadyAPI team to all of you. This month, please meet Alexander Linkov and Dmitry Terentiev from the Documentation team. I'm sure many of you read the documentation articles or followed the tutorials to set up your tests with ReadyAPI. Learn more about the steps to create the documentation:

Community Talks - New community board

We continue to improve the community site to make sure you can easily communicate with each other, navigate around different questions, and raise general topics. We are happy to introduce two new community boards:


Please use the ReadyAPI Questions board if you have a technical question or issue about the tool. To categorize your question, please use Labels when creating a topic so that experts are able to help you faster. Read more about this change.


In the Community Talks board, feel free to post any non-technical and even non-product related topics. This can be a question or general discussion of the news from the API world, fun or interesting moments from your work, questions about the interview, etc. We don't want to dictate the topics, so feel free to post whatever you want to Community Talks (we will only block spam). We want to learn more about each community member!


We will also post community news and news from the SmartBear Academy and other learning resources to this board. Subscribe to Community Talks to be notified.
