Here we go!

Q3 Community Leaders

Q3 2020 Leaders_350.png

Each quarter, we reward the most active and valuable community members who contribute the most, and give them huge kudos! Last quarter, these community leaders posted 837 replies, which were 33% of all answers, and provided 230 solutions — which were 41% of all solutions! You ROCK 🌟.


Please join me in congratulating our Q3 Community Leaders!



Guys, thanks again for your contribution. We’re very proud to see you in the SmartBear Community. Expect to see a new leader badge assigned to your account very soon. Also, you’ll be receiving a $50 gift card to reward your active participation.


TechCorner Challenge Winners


During the past 3 months, a big chunk of you actively participated in the TechCorner challenge. I hope the event helped you learn the SmartBear products a bit better and helped you improve your knowledge. All your solutions will remain in the community and be easily found under the #TechCorner tag.


I want to congratulate our TechCorner Challenge winners one more time:



Guys, thanks so much for your contribution! We will send you some rewards very soon 🎁.


Video Interview


Last month, we published an exclusive interview with software-testing guru, Andrew Knight (@AutomationPanda), where we talked about the importance of mentorship in the current world.


Andrew explained what mentoring is, what a mentoree may expect from their software testing mentor, how to build a carrier path and, of course, how to become a mentor.

You may notice some changes on the community site. Last month, we activated Inline Replies. You can see the Reply box right at the end of each topic. Jump into any conversations you like faster!


That’s all for now. Enjoy using the SmartBear Community and leave your improvement suggestions.
