Atlassian in Africa

calendar
Tue Oct 23, 07:00 - Wed Oct 24, 15:00
location
Turbine Hall

Are you tired of attending the same, traditional tech and dev conference year-in and year-out? Are you looking to be challenged both from an intellectual perspective and a practical experience? Well, the Atlassian in Africa Summit 2018 is the one for you!

 

Just consider our venue. Turbine Hall. This iconic building is located in the arts and culture mecca of Johannesburg – Newtown. And just like Turbine Hall combines state-of-the-art technology with breath-taking décor, so does the Atlassian Summit promise the best of technological innovation and creative development.

 

We’ve gathered some of the leaders in their field to provide unique insights on how to get the most out of teams, whether they are focused on development, infrastructure support, or just improving collaboration with the rest of the organisation. It is all about unpacking the Atlassian toolset and getting the most out of these innovative solutions.

 

Atlassian in Africa puts the spotlight on theory on Day 1 and changes gears for Day 2 to focus on training and certification. So, not only do you get exposed to interesting theoretical discussions, but you can implement everything you’ve heard at the event.

Presented by Marc Kilgus

In this action-packed workshop, we'll tackle the practical and cultural challenges organisations face when attempting a DevOps transformation, and leave you with valuable and actionable advice for your own DevOps journey.
 
You'll be separated into teams that collectively represent business, developers, product owners, infrastructure operations, scrum masters, testers, and a service desk. During 3 rounds of simulations, teams will deliver new applications/services and operate existing ones. 
 
After each round, teams will be graded on:
  • Ability to deliver business impact
  • Ability to ship better software
  • Time to market
  • Customer Satisfaction
Is this for you? No technical expertise or DevOps knowledge required. Add the workshop to your Summit experience today.
