Come join us for a fun afternoon of talking and sharing marketplace and homegrown apps as we celebrate Thanksgiving Atlassian style!
We have gathered together a group of Canadian Atlassian experts to present what they know on the Marketplace, and homegrown Canadian applications. Plus we’re having an “Ask me Anything on Apps” (AMAoA) panel featuring Atlassian Simon Herd and Canadian experts, so get your questions ready. Then finally we'll finish up with a Canadian themed quiz where you can win prizes donated by our Canadian sponsors.
Type of Event: Virtual
