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.

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.

Enterprise Advocate, Atlassian
Life long Texan with a few year stint in North Carolina and New York City. Computer Engineering degree from University of Texas at Austin. I spent 12 Years at IBM before joining Atlassian. I work with clients deploying Atlassian tools at scale.
Director of Engineering Delivery, Lifesize
I am a maximizer at heart and love to work with individuals and teams. Change is hard and like anything you have to pick your battles. I first learned of the agile scrum methodology while working in the Intelligence Agency for the federal government in 2005. I have been practicing and working with teams over the last decade to utilize principles and adjust where it makes sense. Every company and team has a different culture, but our problems are similar in nature! The more visible our problems are to others, the more opportunity there is for a change to occur and for leaders to take action. For fun I enjoy spending time with my family and two small children.
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.
Development Principal, Atlassian
