More information about the talks

How Atlassian Does Docs 

Product documentation and technical content management are challenges nearly all organizations face. And as products and services change and grow, old-school models for creating and publishing supporting content can struggle to scale.

Atlassian's docs teams keep pace by authoring in Confluence and using Scroll Add-ons to manage and publish their content. Learn how they do it from beginning to end, and see how the tools you're already using can be extended to give your docs process the speed and agility it deserves. 

Bridging the Gap: Collaboration With Backbone Issue Sync for JIRA

Backbone – Issue Sync synchronizes issues across JIRA projects and JIRA instances. It enables teams, partners, and businesses to work collaboratively on issues and gives full control over which issues should be synched and to what extent. In this talk we will discuss various approaches to team collaboration in JIRA, focusing on the new possibilities opened up by Backbone. Learn how to share issues and exchange issue information across organization and company boundaries, and work with JIRA in a whole new way.
