Become a Confluence Whiz Kid: Organized Spaces and Beautiful Pages
Many great achievements started with a page in Confluence. Still, users always ask us how to get started creating and organizing content. How you choose to organize content in Spaces and what your pages look like determines how effective your content is.
John Wetenhall, Confluence Whiz, is sharing top tips for Space organization and page creation from his 4 years working on Confluence and speaking to scores of users. He'll focus on Confluence's top use cases: project collaboration and knowledge bases, with hands on examples from Atlassian's own internal Confluence instances, so you know what great spaces and pages can look like, and how to actually create them.
From Feedback to Features - Building the New Jira Experience
When you have 65,000 customers with different needs, who do you listen to? Creating a feedback culture to hear your users is only the first step – translating that feedback into a concrete roadmap is hard, and shipping something is even harder. Join JIRA product managers Helen Xue and Dave Meyer as we share the story of our quest to simplify JIRA. From quick wins to tough trade-offs, you'll learn the strategies and metrics our team used to turn feedback into action. You'll leave with insider knowledge about how we prioritize on JIRA, what we've learned trying to simplify a massive product, and how your team can avoid our mistakes.

Want to become a wiz at workflows, a master of maintenance, and unafraid of upgrades? Hear real use cases and examples from Rachel Wright, author of the Jira Strategy Admin Workbook, and learn how to avoid common Jira Admin mistakes to keep your application clean and uncluttered. Walk through top tips for the smoothest Jira upgrades with Atlassian Product Manager Josephine Lee, and make sure you can take advantage of the newest features, fixes, and performance improvements of each release. Together, they'll help make your admin life easier and instance healthier so you can become a Jira Admin Champion.
Winning at Project Management with the Team Playbook
Managing a project is about more than just tracking the work. Your project teams have diverse skill sets, report to different managers, and may even have different visions of what to deliver. How's a project manager supposed to wrangle their team and deliver the goods without losing their mind?
That's where the Team Playbook comes in. From making sure you're building the right thing, to building team harmony, there are loads of project management plays. Join Sarah Goff-Dupont, Atlassian Principal Writer and Alastair Simpson, Head of Atlassian Design, Platform, Mobile & Comms, as they dive into what exactly these plays are and how they've helped various Atlassian teams master their project management. Whether you're a career project manager, or a project just "landed on your plate", you'll walk away with a game plan for keeping morale and quality high, and bottlenecks to a minimum.
Making Software for the Software Makers: How Atlassian Teams use Jira Software
Ever wondered how internal Atlassian teams push Jira Software to the limit? At Atlassian each team defines a process that best meets their unique needs and challenges. In this talk Product and Marketing Management duo Jason Wong and Jake Brereton will share insights into how Atlassian teams harness and stress test Jira Software to get their teams humming. You'll leave this session with a behind-the-scenes look at how our teams:
- Build custom views that put the right information in front of every team, role, and specialization
- Add depth and accuracy to status tracking with deep developer tool integrations
- Use apps for Atlassian tools to ensure all team members are fully connected to a common workflow
Sprinting to Success: The Agile Transformation at Lifesize
If you're rolling out Agile to new teams or looking to mature and scale your Agile adoption, this session is for you! Lifesize Agile Engineering Delivery Manager, Amy Williams and Atlassian Enterprise Advocate, Holly Tompkins will share the multi-year journey of starting and scaling the Agile transformation of the hardware and software engineering teams at Lifesize, a maker of video, audio and web conferencing solutions. They will share their transformative process: starting with moving teams one by one to the agile model, then scaling by utilizing quarterly program increment planning and demos. These practices helped Lifesize deliver better products, break down organizational silos, develop trust and transparency across the company, and help teams reach their full potential. They’ll discuss how these practices – alongside tools like the Atlassian Team Playbook and Health Monitor – can help your team start and scale the agile framework, too.
Keeping the Release Pipeline Flowing
In the modern world of continuous deployments, it's more important than ever to make sure your software gets to customers as quickly as possible. In this session you will learn how Atlassian tools (such as Bitbucket Server) can help you keep your code changes moving smoothly into releases, while still complying with best practices like three-party code review. You'll also see:
- How to find regulator-happy ways to implement "dark features"
- Ways to set up automated tests that reduce the amount of time you spend isolating the causes of failures
- A trick using Bamboo in an innovative way to identify which of your existing tests are doing more harm than good
- How to deal with traditionally-trying situations like the infamous "change freeze"
As an added bonus, learn a few cool ideas using Jira Service Desk to make it harder for external changes to block your pipeline. Keep it clean, lean, and green!
