2018 Kickoff: "Your Burning Questions" and "Automating Everything Atlassian"

Feb 6, 2018, 12:00 – 2:00 AM

This 2018 Kickoff Event marks our 5th year and 25th meeting - milestones to celebrate! The Schlafly-Maplewood location got a big thumbs up last year for its great meeting space, adjacent-to-building and ample parking, plus good food and drink. This event has a lot of great content that anyone from beginners to experts will enjoy. We have a panel discussion and a presentation. RSVP Now!


About this event

Come to our 2018 kickoff meeting at Schlafly Bottleworks (Maplewood) on MONDAY February 5, in the spectacular Crown Room.

This event features a two-fer: a PANEL DISCUSSION and a PRESENTATION!

PANEL DISCUSSION.  We'll start with an Answers to Your Burning Questions panel hosted by Contegix Experts Don West, Josh Boivin and Hillary Mosca.  They are prepared to answer questions such as:

  • What is the number one piece of advice for securing a JIRA or Confluence instance?
  • What are the performance impacts of having an instance on a public cloud?

If you have a question to pose to the panel, send it to me in advance (and I'll have it to choose from as the panel moderator) or ask it live. 

PRESENTATION. Followed by a brief break, we have a guest, Jonny Carter of Adaptavist, visiting us to present on the topic, Automating Everything Atlassian.  

His abstract for this presentation:
One of the strengths of the Atlassian Suite is the plugin system. Each product has a set of APIs that lets app developers extend the functionality of Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket Server, and the rest. That power is available to regular administrators too, through different automation apps, all of which give you the power of automation without the overhead of writing your own custom app.

See more details on all of this in the agenda below.


In addition, there will be mingle/networking time and as always we provide free beverages, this time served from the Crown Room's own bar staff (non-alcoholic beverages included), food (including pizza) and updated-brand Atlassian swag.   

Don't miss hearing what we have in store this year, and as always if you have a topic you'd like to share with the group (in any way - presentation, one-on-one with those who might have experience with what you are looking to do or working on, etc. or are comfortable asking the entire group an open question), let me know. We can build these opportunities into  meetings.

If you can make it be sure to say hi and let me know what you want to experience as part of our AUG - be it topics to hear presented, issues or challenges you have that you'd like to connect with others on, or anything else. Remember, this AUG is for you.
