Q4 2019 Leaders and 2019 Heroes_350.pngPlease meet the people who are doing their best to resolve all of the questions you may have! They are online each day, and they want to help all of you by sharing their knowledge! Sometimes, I even hear them complaining about needing more questions to answer 🙂 Let's keep asking - the leaders will be happy 😉


Last year, the leaders and heroes posted 4700 posts (38% of all posts), gave 1000 solutions and got 2200 Kudos from you! Awesome, right? Let's give them even more Kudos!!!


So, let me name all of them! Let's applaud the Q4 2019 Leaders decided based on the # of Kudos:



And now - drumroll please! The Heroes of 2019! The members who earned the quarterly leader status at least 3 times in 2019. 3 times!!! Congrats, guys:




Each leader will receive a $50 gift card from SmartBear, each hero will get a $100 gift card from SmartBear. And, all of them will get lots of love and appreciation from the Community 🙂 (and special badges!) Join me in congratulating our superstars!


2019 SmartBear Talks

interview - 350.png

In 2019, we'd been inviting well-known experts to our video interviews to talk about trending topics and topics that we are highly interested in. We talked with Szilard Szell about bug hunting, Rob Schneider taught us how to avoid mistakes when doing API testing, Bas Dijkstra shared the secrets of combining UI and API testing and much, much more. 


You can revisit all the interviews by using the #interview label.




2019 Online Events


Many of you participated in the online events we set up last year. Some of them required your technical skills, others helped us learn more about each other. I hope you enjoyed them.

  1. API Testing vs. UI Testing. That was a hardcore battle between two teams. API won with the minimal score difference.
  2. Wintertainment 2019. Our annual online event to talk about the most important things at the end of the year.
