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/
Praqma has a long history of accelerating and enabling team productivity using the Atlassian stack. Thanks to the hard work and commitment of our consultants Praqma has now achieved Atlassian Platinum Partner Status.

Jenkins is one of the best adverts for open source and at Praqma we have been using it since the very beginning. We enjoy giving something back to the community by hosting Day of Jenkins, and this year’s event was packed with exciting developments. Read on!

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.
Continuous Delivery and DevOps - Not Just For Unicorns
DevOpsDays Copenhagen 2018 was a great success. Inspiring talks and a pleasant community. I had the pleasure of being the host of this event. I decided to kick off the event with a song about DevOps. See the video and lyrics here.

We strive to continuously improve, so the 8th gathering in our Continuous Delivery Alliance will feature all the good things from the 7th meeting in a slightly evolved format.
CoDe Alliance goes code camp
Continuously improving our format
We had our 7th gathering in the CoDe Alliance a few months ago and have worked to distill and evolve many of the good ideas that came out of our sessions. Our aim is to turn our interesting discussions into tangible projects and running code.

What’s next for the CoDe Alliance?
How to achieve high availability in a smart, easy to manage, reproducible manner? The solution is ASK (Atlassian Software in Kubernetes).

Albert Rigo shares his thoughts on the Atlassian Accelerator Day in Copenhagen, and how he learned to quickly and comfortably scale Atlassian Data Center, upgrade with zero downtime and stop spending his weekends upgrading JIRA.
