Community Winter Games - Day 1

by Community Manager on ‎02-11-2018 08:00 PM

Hello Everyone,


Today, we are starting the first Community Winter Games!


Before getting into the tough stuff, let’s start with some warm-up Smiley Happy


Task for Day 1

Think of the name and the slogan for our sport team and explain your choice.


I’m sure we are going to beat all of our competitors! We are a team, and we will need to work together! Let’s think of the name and the slogan for our team. They should sound terrifying (in a good way Smiley Happy) and powerful to scare our competitors away. At the same time, the name and the slogan should show that we are software specialists who work hard to prepare automated tests by using SmartBear products.


Answers like 'SmartBear Community Team' won't count Smiley Wink I’m sure you can think of something more creative!


Participate in today’s Game

Leave a comment below this article with your answer to the task.



-          At the end of the event, the SmartBear Expert group will choose three winners

-          All winners will get gift cards according to their medal place:

             o   Gold Medal - $45 gift card

             o   Silver Medal - $35 gift card

             o   Bronze Medal - $20 gift card

-          The winners will be selected among the members who completed the max number of tasks during the event.


Rules, because there always have to be some rules…

-          You must be a SmartBear Community member to take part in the Games.

-          Don’t be afraid to be creative! A short simple answer to a daily task is not what you should be aiming for.

-          You can complete the tasks any time you want before the event ends – Feb 17.

-          Be active and give Kudos to answers of other community members.


Daily Tasks will be posted at 4 AM GMT | 9:30 IST | 1 AM EST on Feb 12-16.


I look forward to reading your answers Smiley Happy

PDCABEAR plan–do–check–action


Because we do planning we do execution and we check it with help of assertions and we take the action.

The Smarts


because testing in TestComplete means you are smart (and because in winter games like in all sports you are allowed to be blatantly blowing your own horn)


The Teasers

The Terrors of Testing: All bugs must die


In the software development life cycle, while too often the mindset is that testing is ALWAYS left until the end and quality is something you inject at that point, we live into that fact of life. This is our reality... and we embrace it.  We are the last line of defense, that thin red line between untested code and the vulnerable public, those who stay late on a release day to hunt down and destroy the last bug, to finish that last test, to write that last piece of regression code... and the bugs fear us for it. We are the few, the proud, the Testers... and we are terrors to all code defects... they run and hide from us... but we find them.. and destroy them.

OAS - Olympian Athletes of SmartBear


We live in different countries and work for different companies, sometimes as competitors.  Yet as we strive for excellence, we also respect the human condition to help and encourage others to do their best by teaching and providing tools so that they too can expand and grow.  We all become better when the bar of achievement is raised.

How about the SmartBear Wolverines


When we're faced with a defect/problem in our tests, we worry it to the bone and attack it like a wolverine. We're tenacious, and we're protective of our code. 


Team slogan: "Shredding defects and tests that bite!"

SmartBear Cool Kids

Slogan Conquer all no Worry

Reminds me of Jamaican Bobsleigh team

this means even if the bug is impossible to repro we find a way thanks to our awesome tech and mindset

Name: Mighty Mammal(s)

Slogan: The SmartBear that rules not just hemisphere, but the sphere of software quality products.


I believe, the above slogan just explains it all. Taken the "hemisphere" in the context of Polar Bear. If it is lengthy, can cut  "not just hemisphere, but " from it, leaves


"The SmartBear that rules the sphere of software quality products."


Also I do have another thought for name : Carnivorans (thanks to wikipedia).

Bugs beware

they will test you to ultimate hiding capacity

they will catch you with Smart+Bear hand

they can hack you to the root (cause )

they are unstoppable and programmed to win
