SAN FRANCISCO (BUSINESS WIRE) — Starting today, small teams and startups can get a great deal on two of the world’s most popular IT tools, Atlassian Jira and Confluence. Through April 24th, Atlassian will be selling fully functional “starter licenses” of Confluence and Jira for $5 USD each, for up to five users, with all the proceeds going to charity.
“We realize that in times like these, some of the people that need our software the most can’t afford to spend the money,” notes CEO, Mike Cannon-Brookes. “If you’ve been laid off and are starting on a new entrepreneurial mission or if you’re part of a small team with a tight budget, Confluence and Jira are now within your reach.”
The Atlassian “stimulus package” will help small teams and businesses that are struggling in the global financial crisis. All proceeds from the Atlassian Stimulus Package will be donated by the Atlassian Foundation to Room to Read, a charity that builds libraries and schools for children in developing nations.
Atlassian will be donating up to 5000 licenses in the next five days, hoping to raise up to $25,000 for Room to Read, enough to build 5 or 6 libraries.
Starter Licenses, available for Jira Enterprise and Confluence for $5 each, include a fully functional copy of the product and come with one year of support. They can be renewed on a yearly basis for $5 dollars, no strings attached. For more information and to purchase a Starter License, please visit:
