Time: Thursday 14:15 - 15:15

Location: Rutherford Room


Atlassian is a small yet very successful Australian software company. It has been consistently branded as the fastest growing software company in Australia. This has been a blessing and at the same time a significant challenge. Scaling the company at such a rate and staying successful requires a lot of focus and hard work.

Atlassian has managed to stay successful largely due to continuously introducing and improving agile practices throughout the organisation and applying its own tools to every aspect of the company's inner workings.

In this session we will cover some of the issues we came across and best practices we have came up with to tackle them. We will cover topics such as using JIRA for recruitment, Crucible for training and more.
