We'll cover how Atlassian innovates as we grow, and some things you can take away to cultivate an "innovation first" atmosphere at your company.

Issac Gerges, Developer - Confluence, Atlassian

Issac Gerges is a Confluence developer at Atlassian. For as long as he can remember, he's been hacking on one thing or another.

Since moving from Wisconsin to Sydney, Issac spends most of his time hacking on Confluence. As a full stack developer with a focus on business teams, he’s helped ship key features like blueprints, tasks, and better files support. Issac’s passion for product and innovation has also helped him put four ShipIt finals and two wins under his belt.
