Did you know?  The Atlassian Foundation has donated over $3.9 million to various charities. All proceeds from our fully featured 10-user JIRA starter licenses go to Room to Read, which promotes literacy and gender equality in education throughout the developing world.  Every Atlassian employee is given five days of volunteer leave.  At Atlassian, we believe in giving back. And good issue tracking. Nothing is more fun than when we get to do both.  The Atlassian Foundation's

Have more date nights with Bamboo & JIRA

My list of favorite new things at Atlassian since returning from 3 months leave is as follows: my adjustable-height desk, HipChat video, and (to the surprise of exactly no-one) Bamboo's ever-more-streamlined deployment flow.
