We are Super Excited to be kicking off our 2019 evening AUGs, and to get us all hopping out on the right foot, we have a full evening of Jira planned for you all. First up we will be hosting Jake Brereton from Atlassian's Jira Software Cloud Team.
Jake Brereton is Head of Product Marketing for Jira Software, and is traveling out here to the wilds of Ohio (He's a Dayton native) to talk about the new and exciting features of the new Jira experience. Over the past two years the Jira team went back to the drawing board with a mission to completely reimagine and rebuild its flagship product from the ground up. Today, the next generation project experience in Jira Software Cloud is shipping out-of-the-box with roadmaps, an overhauled configuration, new integrations, an entirely redesigned board and issue experience, and much more. Please join us as he showcases key new features and functionality in the next-gen project experience and explains how key software development trends directly influenced the largest overhaul Jira has had in years.
Also we will have been working with Atlassian University to bring you a workshop on how to take the Work out of Workflows (sorry! My confusion, we will do Boards later in the year!). I will be making this as hands on as possible and can't wait to show you all of the really great things you can do with Boards.
A proud Midwesterner living in California by way of North Carolina, Jake has had the good fortune of working on the JIRA team since 2013. When he's not building custom JIRA workflows, you can find him absorbed in a game of Settlers of Catan or making the best Hendricks & Tonic known to man. Or very possibly both at the same time.
