Introductions in CPH and OSL to the Atlassian tools
This spring we launched the Atlassian Accelerator Day in Copenhagen and Oslo.
We had expected to attract around 50 or so Atlassian users, but the events exceeded all expectations. More than 75 people attended in each city with many more on the waiting list.
Praqma’s Timothy Harris opened with an introduction to JIRA software and how to control workflows. He then explored Portfolio for JIRA and demonstrated how to secure visibility across teams and projects. To finish he took us through JIRA ServiceDesk and how to maximize processes and methodologies, from sales and marketing, to IT and more.
“I feel much more confident going into Jira SW at work now”
Tim is one of our Atlassian experts at Praqma, but he is not a salesperson. During his presentations he shared best practices, answered some technical questions from the audience, and gave his honest opinion on what works, and what doesn’t. That’s what you can expect from a consultant at Praqma.
We also invited Dag Arne Brænd, the COO of Novelda in Oslo, onto the stage and he spoke about how his company is using JIRA, gave technical tips, and offered concrete examples like agile sprints. In Copenhagen, Jarosław Łojko, Scrum Master at DSV, showed how JIRA supports DSV’s guiding principles.
The idea behind these events was to share knowledge and experience among Atlassian users. The microphone went around the room and many users had very interesting questions and experiences on Portfolio for JIRA and JIRA Service desk.
“I went for the Portfolio part but got inspired by Servicedesk too, which was a pleasant benefit”
We will bring the Atlassian Accelerator Day to more Scandinavian cities in the future, and plan some specific meet-ups. Stay tuned: http://www.code-conf.com/

Tips to improve project management in the Atlassian suite
In software development tight coupling is one of our biggest enemies. On the function level it makes our application hard to change and fragile. Unfortunately, tight coupling is like the entropy of software development, so we have always have to be working to reduce it.

Continuous Delivery and DevOps are here to stay and not because they’re being practiced by trendsetting unicorn companies. The fact is science tells us that these approaches work and this year’s conference gave us lots of examples.
