“JIRA Admin Mistakes” in Ann Arbor, MI

Ann Arbor Atlassian User Group

Rachel Wright is a featured speaker at the February meeting of the Ann Arbor Atlassian User Group.   On February 28, 2017, she’ll present “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.

New JIRA Administrator Training Course

A new JIRA Administrator training course, based on the principles in the JIRA Strategy Admin Workbook, is on the way!

Just like the workbook isn’t typical documentation, this course is different too!  This isn’t a traditional class, where you listen to the instructor speak all day, watch them click around a screen, and forget half of what you heard.

Instead, this course walks you through the content in the Workbook and helps you develop and implement your own strategies.  This is so much more than a standard training course.  Sure there’s content to read and videos to watch, but there’s also action items, interaction with the JIRA environment, and real scenarios to help you fix mistakes in your own application.  This course may also help you prepare for JIRA Certification.

The course is self-paced so you can review the material and complete the tasks when and in the order it makes sense for you.  Want to learn on the bus on the way to work?  Why not?  Want to pause while you discuss a scenario with your team?  Do it!
