About this event

Nothing beings people together like good food and coltaborative software. Join us as we bring together BBQ and Atlassian's latest Al capabilities. And we will have bears! (keep reading....).  BBQ will be catered in from one of St. Louis' excellent barbecue restaurants.

BBQ + AI + Bears

During the event, Ed Galle, from Appfire - who as a BBQ Pitmaster, also knows his barbecue - will deliver an overview of Al in Jira and Confluence. We will learn about a number of new features available with this built-in functionality.

And that's not all! As part of Appfire's community outreach arm that they call Appfire Town, we will be stuffing 50 (fifty) bears and including hearts before zipping them back up. Their ultimate destination: St. Louis Children's Hospital

PANS/PANDA AWARENESS - a very special part of our event that you can participate in.

This past year, one of the Appfire Town neighbors shared that their daughter was battling PANS/PANDAS*. These diseases, still misunderstood even by many medical professionals, are misdirected immune responses that result in newly abrupt onset or worsening of OCD and/or restricted food intake. concurrently with various neuropsychiatric, cognitive, behavioral, or neurological symptoms. We will be building stuffed animals to raise awareness for this cause and donating them to St. Louis Children's Hospital (SLCH). SLCH offers comprehensive services in every pediatric medical and surgical specialty to the St. Louis metropolitan area and a primary service region covering six states.

* PANS = “Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome”   PANDAS = “Pediatric Autoimmune Neuropsychiatric Disorders Associated with Streptococcal Infections” (PANDAS is a subset of PANS).  Learn more.

Great food, great content and a great cause all in one meeting!
Don't miss it.  RSVP now to reserve your spot!
