Welcome to the April Community News Journal! Today, we want to start with a special message from the SmartBear CEO, Frank Roe. Please read it here. COVID-19 has changed our lives dramatically. However, we, at SmartBear, will do our best to support you, our valued customers!
Now, let's move on to the community news for the previous month.
Q1 Community Leaders
Please meet the Q1 2020 Community Leaders! These are the most active community members who have an enormous willingness to help others!
Last quarter, Leaders posted 44% of all replies, gave 47% of all solutions and got 64% of all Kudos. This is an incredible contribution to the Community. Guys, you ROCK!
We have BenoitB and Reshail as our first-time Leaders this quarter. Welcome to the Team, guys.
From SmartBear, we will be happy to send you a $50 gift card. We will contact you soon with more details.
Also, I want to remind everyone that each community member can earn the Community Leader status. You need to be active in the Community, post more topics or replies and get more Kudos. We announce Community Leaders each quarter choosing the members with the biggest number of Kudos and posts. More information >>

In March, we set up an online Community event in the ReadyAPI Community. It brought many interesting and useful technical conversations, as well as general ones. I hope you enjoyed the event! Here are some key API Masterminds numbers:

It's high time to learn something new - join a class to learn how to code better or how to use a SmartBear product more effectively. In SmartBear Academy, you can find many useful learning courses prepared specially for you, our valued customers. Enroll in courses here.
