September is always the exciting month of the year for all the Apple fans. Now, lots of them will go crazy today: the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus are available in stores.
As a tester, you may have noticed some changes on your Dashboard this week. The biggest addition is a new point-system in our Nest: Community Points. Along with Experience Points, Community Points are a way to reward our testers. The difference is that Community Points (CPs) are used as a reward for a variety of non-testing related tasks. Experience Points (EPs) reflect experience as a tester and the amount of points received depends only on the quality of the work submitted in tests. We thought test-related experience points weren’t enough to reward our testers for everything they do, so we created CPs.

My Role at Testbirds is a series of blog posts that gives insights into the daily life at the office. Every so often, one of our employees will introduce you to his or her line of work and share some helpful tips.

Testbirds love Christmas. Especially here in Munich, with all those beautiful christmas markets in the city and winter festival Tollwood just around the corner. And the season fun continues in the office, where we have a lovely advent calendar, made by two very special secret santas.

But even though it is the season to be jolly, it does impact some things concerning community support.
Recently, we had two surprise visitors. Silvano and his wife, both from Italy, decided to come by and say hello. They were on a road trip around Germany as well as other countries and, as freshly hatched Testbirds coming through Munich, wanted to meet the team and see what our Nest actually looks like.
Some of you might have seen it already – We have a new nest! The development and project management team have worked very hard and now a completely new version of the Nest is online.
