Thanks again to all who attended the first Central Texas Atlassian User Group (CTXAUG). We had a fun, productive time at Sholtz Garten last week, talking all things Atlassian. Some shots from the event:

Our next meeting will be held in May. In the meantime, join our Meetup page and follow us on Twitter (@ctxaug) for updates!

Day two’s off to a great start. Our JIRA toaster‘s been hot all morning. We’ve enjoyed talking to the innovative companies attending SXSWi. There are a lot of great ideas here, all of which need to be fortified by good business processes and solid technology.

Swing by our booth (1221) so we can chat! You’ll get one of these:

We’ve seen hundreds of folks on our first day at SXSW Trade Show. Thanks for swinging by! Check out these shots from our first day:

Our whole team.

 

If you’re at the festival, be sure to come by tomorrow for more swag giveaways, process/ITSM talk, and Atlassian JIRA-powered kitchen appliances.

The Agile Framework, and in particular scrum allows any team or organization the ability to deliver product to the customer at the pace of new technology. But it's not just for software development.




We’re excited to announce that our primary Atlassian guru, developer, ace, bad-a… Chris Pepe, has slayed a dragon. A huge, fire-breathing, metaphorical dragon.

Chris completed Atlassian’s Here Be Dragons quest, in which developers from villages worldwide are challenged with the task of fully integrating a suite of Atlassian applications. And he did it without a sword.

Atlassian challenges its most skilled customers and evaluators to the task. Those who achieve victory as Chris connected issues, wikis, and source code to create an agile set of Atlassian tools for building software fast – that awesome, integrated experience we (and Atlassian) talk about.

Chris’ dragon slaying included:

  • Dragons Stage 1 – Install Java, PostgreSQL and Crowd
  • Dragons Stage 2 – Install JIRA
  • Dragons Stage 3 – Install GreenHopper into JIRA
  • Dragons Stage 4 – Install Confluence
  • Dragons Stage 5 – Install FishEye and Crucible
  • Dragons Stage 6 – Get JIRA and FishEye talking
  • Dragons Stage 7 – Get JIRA and Crucible talking
  • Dragons Stage 8 – Install Bamboo
  • Dragons Stage 9 – Bamboo gadgets and JIRA victory

We’re excited to have Chris’ black belt Atlassian skills in our arsenal. You’ll have the chance to meet him when we host the first Central Texas Atlassian User Group (CTXAUG) later this month, as well as in our booth at SXSW 2011 Interactive Trade Show. But if you’re adopting an Atlassian tool in the meantime, talk to us now!
