Atlassian has reimagined its annual user conference, formerly known as Summit, and is kicking off its inaugural Team 2021 event on Wednesday, April 28th. The two-day event is completely digital, so it's accessible to everyone this year, which is awesome! You can join the sessions in real time for free, or you can watch on-demand and even get access to tons of exclusive content for $200.
The speakers and sessions are going to be great! To help you decide what sessions to attend (virtually, of course), I put together a list of some of the things I'm most excited about...
Keynotes and Speakers
You would not believe the lineup of speakers Atlassian has put together! First off, the event is hosted by Atlassian's resident work futurist, Dom Price, who has a fabulous TEDx talk you can watch if you want to do a little conference pre-gaming. And, of course, Atlassian co-CEOs, Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar, and many other Atlassian leaders and team members, will speak.
You'll also have the opportunity to hear from founders, CEOs, and CIOs from companies like Zoom, Slack, and Peloton. I'm also really looking forward to hearing Jill Ellis' and Katie Sowers' thoughts on Modern Mindsets for Work and Life. The conference wraps with a talk from none other than Malcolm Gladwell, and All-Access attendees will even have the chance to hear from Daniel Pink!
Tracks and Sessions
There are six session tracks at Team 2021, so you can narrow down your areas of interest:
- Teams and Culture
- Business Transformation
- Scaling for the Enterprise
- ITSM & ITOM
- DevOps and Agile
- Journey to the Cloud
The sessions themselves are such a great way to discover innovative uses for Atlassian products and learn about best practices. However, with so many sessions available at Team 2021, it’s almost impossible to choose which ones to watch! To help narrow things down for you, I went through all the options and made a list of the ones that look like winners for leveling up your Atlassian abilities.
Broadcast sessions are available to watch in real-time, and they're totally free, but you do have to register for a Standard Access pass to attend them. Here are three that I'm really looking forward to:
Scaling Innovation with Atlassian Enterprise
Thrive Like a Hive: Elevate Business Team Performance
How High-Velocity Dev and Ops Teams Fuel Digital Transformation
There are more than 80 on-demand sessions to choose from--well worth $200 for an All-Access pass in my opinion. You have tons of time to watch them all--way better than bingeing Netflix--but the following is a list of the ten sessions that are at the top of my watch list:
5 Ways to Power Up Teamwork and Project Management with Jira and Gantt Chart
A Brief Tour of Opsgenie
A New Approach to Conversational Ticketing in Slack
Data-Driven Decisions for Your Team in Jira Software
How an Open Approach to DevOps Gives You the Flexibility to Adapt to Anything
How a Well-Tuned Jira Can Change Everything for Your Team
Jira Service Management: Incident Management (hosted by our very own Nick Nader!)
Key Tips to Get Started with Jira and Confluence Together
Make Jira Work for You with Automation
Master Class: How HP's R&D Team Does Knowledge Management in Confluence
All Access Sessions
Your All-Access pass not only gets you all that great on-demand content, but you also get access to more than a dozen special sessions. these are three that I'm really looking forward to:
The Unicorn Project and The Five Ideals
Solution Session: OKRs at Enterprise Scale
Solution Session: Asset Management Strategies for IT Support in the Cloud
My recommendation--clear your schedule! I plan on making the time to attend as many Team 2021 sessions as possible, and I hope you do, too.
Of course, after the conference, you can count on the Isos Technology team to recap some of the important takeaways, so keep an eye on our blog for those insights!
