December 2020 | SmartBear Community News Journal

Hello Community,


In a month, we will jump into a wonderful 2021. It's high time we finished all we had planned to do this year and started planning for the next year! The SmartBear Community is always happy to assist with any QA questions you have. So, our plan for this December is to have even more great conversations with you - next week we are starting our annual online event that will unite all software testing communities and provide great topics for discussion.
