Cloud, Opsgenie, Jira Align, Data Center and 100% Renewability - In the first week of April, our Scandio team visited their first Atlassian Summit in the USA. A huge spectacle in the Nevada desert with a thousand impressions and lots of great news from the Atlassian world. In this blog post we want to summarize the most concise ones to bring Atlassian fans who weren’t there up to date.

News from the Atlassian product world

The program started on Monday with Developer Day, which is all about the Atlassian developer community. Whether new ideas or best practice impressions, there was a lot of information about app development, cloud capabilities, scaling, security and performance. Tuesday was the Partner Day for all Atlassian partners, where Scandio again received the award: “Atlassian Partner of the Year - Enterprise 2019”.

We also held a presentation on the stage. At a partner event of Seibert Media and Linchpin, our colleague Felix Grund showed what is possible with our Atlassian Marketplace App “PocketQuery” for Confluence and Jira.
