Amplify Your Atlassian Summit Experience
This blog post refers to our Atlassian Summit experience in 2018. For the latest information on Atlassian events, please check out their website →
Atlassian Summit Barcelona is just a few short weeks away, and we're thrilled to share that K15t is a Platinum Sponsor of the event. We’re headed into our 9th Atlassian Summit as a company, and we have much more to share with our audience than just what you’ll discover at our booth. As experts, we’ve compiled some tips for having a successful Summit experience, along with a sneak peek of what you can expect from K15t this year.
K15t provides some of the best apps on the Marketplace – we’ve even been named a founding Platinum Top Vendor! We'll be showcasing our library of Marketplace apps – in particular, our popular Scroll Apps for Confluence and Backbone Issue Sync for Jira.
And because we haven't mentioned the word Platinum enough times already: We're also an Atlassian Platinum and Enterprise Solution Partner. We can help you discover which tools work best for your business or even build a custom solution. Come tell us about your projects and what you're looking to improve – we love a good challenge!
But it's not all about us, obviously. Having been around the Summit block a few times, we want to help you to get the most out of your time in Barcelona. Here's how to amplify your experience:
With over 60 sessions and keynotes from top Atlassians and industry leaders, there will be no shortage of inspiration for how to get the most out of your Atlassian tools. Use this handy session schedule to build your agenda based on the tools you use or the track that makes sense for your use case. Here are a few that caught our eye:
- How to Win Friends and Confluence People: Break down organizational silos and build a cohesive culture with Confluence.
- The Ultimate Guide to Confluence for Software Teams: How to use Confluence throughout the software development process, from concept to launch.
- 20 First Time Jira Admin Tips: From choosing the right number of admins to little-known resources for assistance, this talk will help Jira beginners get started.
Earn a Whole New Set of Skills (And Possibly Your Summit ROI)
Boost your skill set with live Atlassian trainings at Summit, where you'll work directly with Atlassian instructors. You can even take certification exams for a fraction of the regular cost, giving you (and your boss) a return on your Summit investment.
Build your Network
Curious about how other organizations in your space are using the Atlassian tools? Find these folks at Summit! Hear keynotes from industry leaders, and network with other users who are facing similar challenges. Summit is also the perfect place to build a local network by connecting with Atlassian User Group (AUG) members in your area.
Speaking of building a network, we're very excited to announce that Sven Peters will join the K15t Marketing team this summer. Stop by the booth to meet our newest member, or attend his session, The Secret Sauce of Successful Teams, where he'll offer his insights and techniques for building healthy, successful teams.
Have Fun! Seriously.
Let's be real, the best part of attending conferences is getting out of the office and having a bit of fun. Or a lot of fun. We don't judge.
Atlassian works hard to fit fun into the entire agenda, with highlights like ShipIt Live, Summit's 24-hour hackathon which promises to produce the most creative and innovative new ideas in the ecosystem. This year, Atlassian has expanded the ShipIt experience to 4 teams who will work on their projects and present them live at the closing keynote. Visit them on the show floor to get the real 24-hour hackathon feeling.
Fun fact, the K15t team was crowned ShipIt Live winner at Summit Barcelona last year with our Bobble Heads project:
And then of course there's Summit Bash – Atlassian's biggest party of the year. You definitely won't want to miss it.
