“JIRA Admin Mistakes” in Palm Beach and NYC

New York City
Atlassian User Group

Did you hear about the company with 132 JIRA Administrators?  Avoid this mistake and hear others at the Palm Beach, Florida Atlassian User Group on March 28, 2017 and the New York City, New York Atlassian User Group on March 30, 2017.  Author and Certified JIRA Administrator Rachel Wright presents “Top JIRA Administration Mistakes” based on the JIRA Strategy Admin Workbook. 

The goal of the “Top JIRA Administration Mistakes” presentation is to keep others out of what I call the “JIRA swamp.”  Or, if you’re already in it, help dig you out. This session is different – it’s about strategy.  It’s recommendations from years of cleaning up horrible JIRA configurations!  It’s about what you should do, what you shouldn’t do, and why.  Hear the mistakes I made as a JIRA administrator and real examples of problems to avoid.  Would you rather your application be an organized, tidy, and trimmed garden or a foggy, contaminated, overgrown swamp?

Atlassian Users Groups are where users meet, learn, network, and share best practices. The groups meet locally, all over the world, on a quarterly or more frequent basis.  User Group members are newbies and veterans who like to “talk shop” about Atlassian software, about Agile development, and about related business topics.  At these events, you can network with your peers, share solutions, meet Expert Partners, get special content from Atlassian, and enjoy a beer.
