We will have two presentations from Atlassian Partners sharing what they are doing to empower Confluence and Jira. Pure content and excitement, no sales messages allowed ;)

From Blended Perspective: Out of the box Jira and Confluence don’t easily support traditional planning approaches yet most organizations operate a blend of both. There are some great tools to support gantt charts, Work Break down structures and estimation. This talk will discuss practical approaches to this and some cool reasons why both agile and waterfall planning have their places
