Two Jira users walk into a bar... What do they find? Each other and a whole lot of ways to use Jira to solve problems. This month two local users will share how they use Jira and other products to collaborate and manage internal projects from technical to business. Come to learn from their successes, failures, and everything in between. Ask questions and collaborate; our hope is that you'll walk away with answers to your burning challenges, or at least feel like you have a local Bat-line to call for help.
We'll also report out on the latest from Atlassian, including announcements from Summit in San Jose. If you attended, we'd love for you to share your most-memorable moment and what you learned.
Date: Wednesday, October 18, 2017
Time: 5:30-7 PM PDT
Location: Centrl Office Eastside - 329 NE Couch St, Portland, OR 97232
Other things and things: Food and social lubricant provided, cheers!
Linda is a business analyst and project manager with TeamPeople working at Intel. Her teams use Jira and Confluence to manage issue intake primarily for marketing functionality requests to support the organization.
