About this event

Finally, Summer 2019 is here and it's warm out there. Let's gather now for another Atlassian Community Event - ACE (formerly known as Atlassian User Group - AUG). Come join us again at one of our old and favorite locations at Square Space in the West Village!

To Change is Human - Kaylin Aarts, NOBL

Organizational change is merely individual change carried out at scale. And like the changes we carry out as individuals, organizational change can vary between overwhelming, tedious, and refreshing. In order to understand how we can change our companies, or dare we say, the world, we need to understand change at the human level.

Join Kaylin Aarts of NOBL for an interactive session that explores resistance to change, as illustrated by real client stories and case studies. She’ll share the six types of loss employees experience during change, and you'll walk away with a framework for leading teams through authentic transformation.

Jira Performance And Scalability Journey - Gordon Huang, Verizon

When you administer one the industry's largest Jira Data Center implementations, challenges of stability, scalability, and performance are raised to whole new level. Gordon will speak about how he and his team designed a new architecture and implemented various tuning strategies resulting in dramatic improvements on the Jira instance. The Jira journey is still continuing and Gordon will end the talk with a preview of their future agile services roadmap.

As always, outside of these topics and talks, we'll have food, drinks and plenty of networking opportunities; and maybe even a prize or two.

Any questions, please feel free to reach out to us. We hope to see you there!!!
