About this event

Come join the New York Atlassian Community as we kickoff 2020! Organizations often struggle to scale their agile practices with Jira or get the whole company to adopt and truly collaborate in Confluence. Come hear Matt Reiner, K15t, and Phil Heijkoo, ALM Works, about best practices on how teams can work better together by driving confluence adoption and scaling agile. We will be back again at the World Trade Center, Building 3, in the Financial District.


The guest list will close promptly on Wednesday, Jan 29th, at 5:00 pm. To ensure entry into the building, you must RSVP before then. There will not be any day-off spot-checkins! Building security here is really tight. Please don't forget your ID.

Driving Confluence Adoption - Matt Reiner - K15t

Confluence is a great tool for creating content together: it’s easy to add, discuss, and correct content. But why do some teams struggle to get people working in Confluence? Why do your co-workers still email files back and forth?

This talk will show you how to build a culture of effective collaboration with many examples from various organizations. We'll show practices and tools that can help your teams to better manage documents and documentation in Confluence.

As a Confluence administrator and advocate, Matt has introduced many teams to new ways of collaborating on content. From documentation, to marketing copy, to a support knowledge base; Matt has worked with teams to create better, together.

Scaling Agile - Phil Heijkoo - ALM Works

Adopting agile methodologies in a large organization is never easy—what looks great on paper, may not work in real life. Luckily, Jira offers the flexibility to support almost any process. And it can adapt to changes as the process evolves.

In this session we'll talk about some of the challenges associated with Scaling Agile, the things you need to consider when choosing the right Jira apps, and some of the successful approaches we've seen customers use. We’ll show you some easily-implemented use cases for common agile rituals such as PI planning, release planning, and backlog grooming, at scale.

Phil Heijkoop is a solutions engineer at ALM Works and a certified SPC. He is responsible for the ALM Works SAFe initiative, an effort to enable and help all scaled agile practitioners using Jira to be as efficient and successful as possible.
