It’s on! The first ever Add-on Discovery Day 2017 will happen on September 11th in San Jose. It’s the day before Atlassian Summit. If you are in San Jose on September 11th, please be quick to register. I am pretty sure, that this is the best option to spend the day. And we’ll be finished when the evening party for Atlassian partners starts. Read more about the event:
The Scrum development framework assigns a entire series of very specific tasks and responsibilities to the Scrum Master within a team. However, in many companies the Scrum Masters do something quite different. Our colleagues always ask us what we actually do. To answer these questions, I have written a series of blog posts.
The 6th instalment of our Tools4AgileTeams conference is already looming on the horizon. It is on 30 November and 1 December, and as usual, in Wiesbaden. We return to the rooms of the IHK Wiesbaden, after having a good experience with them last year.
We’ve also decided on the overarching theme for this year’s conference: Agile Goliath – is this possible?
Immediately after the Atlassian Summit Europe in Barcelona, an Atlassian employee visited us in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall (Twitter, LinkedIn) is the Strategy and Operations Manager for Confluence. Of course, we took advantage of this opportunity, and had John join us in a couple of webinars.
My colleague Torsten – our pioneer in landscaping and cultivation – recently came up with the great idea of planting our terrace with useful plants instead of simply decorative ones. Space is abundant, and especially for colleagues who live in the city without their own garden, urban gardening is a great opportunity to put our green thumbs together. There’s also something to hanging out during the lunch break in our own garden with the growing vegetables! 🙂
It’s useful to always extend the 12-month support period for your Atlassian software – you receive regular updates with bug fixes, new features, improvements, and security patches. But when should you extend, and when should you upgrade? Look a little into the future, if your user numbers are increasing it may make more sense to upgrade!
Last year, Facebook started offering a business solution called, Workplace by Facebook. It’s a variation of the social network of the same name, but for use in the office. Companies can easily register, calculate costs, and quickly get up and running.
But what does the term “workplace” really mean in this case? What does Workplace by Facebook (referred to as Workplace hereafter) actually offer companies?
Right after the Atlassian Summit Europe has finished in Barcelona, we have a leading Atlassian employee as our guest in Wiesbaden: John Wetenhall. We have a lot planned – join us for a webinar on 9 May, arrange a private discussion on the 8 or 9 May, or drop in to the Rhein-Main Atlassian user group on the 9 May.
Last year, Facebook started offering a solution for organizations called, Facebook for Work. It then officially started development in October 2016, changing its name to Workplace by Facebook. The question is, though, how much “workplace” is really in Workplace by Facebook? Is it mainly an intranet, or can it even be an alternative to a digital workplace?
