GOTO Chicago 2013

Screen Shot 2013-04-24 at 5.41.30 PMIt was great to be one of the sponsors at the GOTO Chicago 2013 conference from Tuesday April, 23 – Wednesday, April 24th  It was awesome meeting a number of JIRA, Confluence, and Dev Tools customers  at the conference.  Herzum Consulting, one of our experts joined us at the booth as well.  Atlassian Experts help deliver an incredible experience with our products. If you need a plugin built, a deployment tuned, help with setup and configuration, or coaching on going agile, we’ve got the expert for the job.

Technology, Innovation, and Fun

We enjoyed two full days of technology, innovation, and fun with some amazingly bright minds.  We heard from Dan North sharing on how we tend to cling to structure.  He challenged us how to thrive in an uncertain world.  Mike Lee talked candidly about how innovation happens at the intersection of creativity and commerce. His take is that innovation, the hard core engineering, commands sacrifice.  Mike encourages developers to seek feedback from peers as well as end users on making their application better.

Tim-PettersenWe also heard from Atlassian’s own Tim Pettersen.  Tim, originally based in Sydney, was one of the developers on the Stash team.  He now joins us in San Francisco as a developer advocate.   Stash is Atlassian’s on-premise, enterprise grade Git solution.  He shared with all of us how to use Git as a platform.  He used examples from tracking configuration changes in a Wi-Fi router to seeing change history in the German legislature.  Tim of course hosts his slides in Git!

New to Git?

For those of you who are new to Git, Atlassian has two Git solutions: Stash and Bitbucket.  Stash is enterprise Git for an on premise solution.  Bitbucket is all of the goodness of Git hosted in the cloud.

About Dan Radigan

Software has been a passion since the days of the floppy disk (you know, the actual 5.25 inch floppy ones). Agile has had a huge impact on me both professionally and personally as I've learned the best experiences are agile, both in code and in life. You'll often find me at the intersection of technology, photography, and motorcycling. Find me on twitter @danradigan.
