QASymphony is headed to the Atlassian Summit in two weeks! Three days to hang out with – and learn from – over 2500 Atlassian customers and 300+ product gurus. Come visit us at booth G3!
We are very excited about all the sessions this year so it was hard to pick which ones to highlight, but below are a few of the ones we will be for sure checking out.
Enterprise State of the Union
Speaker: Chris Clarke, Atlassian
Atlassian products are catching on like wildfire. What started out as a set of tools for teams has quickly grown into a worldwide enterprise phenomenon where standardization is the watchword. Join us as we dig into the products, progress, and plans Atlassian is making on behalf of companies who are “going big” with our stuff.

Agile Development with Chuck Norris
Speaker: Madhusudhan Matrubai, Barclays
The session gives a brief overview on the challenges that an Agile development team faced before adopting agile tools, it walks through on how adopting the Chuck Norris suite transformed an ordinary Agile team into power packed ChuckAgile Team. The suite consists of various Atlassian tools like Confluence, Jira, Bitbucket (including Stash), Bamboo and Jira Service Desk and is referred here as “Chuck Norris” for obvious reasons of agility, flexibility, traceability and various other adjectives. The session highlights on how the integration between these tools contributed for a greater transparency, traceability, collaboration and increased productivity. Agility redefined by Chuck Norris.
