Happy Monday, Atlassian community,

I spent my last Monday differently as I attended my first Atlassian event (ACA Team UP 2023) as a sponsor and as a speaker. And above all, it is an in-person event that added (positively) to the overall experience.

In a WFH world that's increasingly digital, there's something magical about in-person get-togethers. There were many highlights, from interesting expert talks to networking and playing games directly at the sponsors’ booths. So, before the colors of the memories fade, let's celebrate the power and joys of traveling and attending events where fellow Atlassian enthusiasts meet, greet, and unite.

The Joy of F2F Connections:

There's nothing quite like the energy of meeting fellow Atlassian enthusiasts in person. Could you share your most memorable networking experiences at these events? Who have you met, and how have these connections impacted your Atlassian journey? I have yet to discover the impacts myself, but if I’m thinking about the people I’ve met, I can say that I was lucky enough to connect with many of them and had a great time chatting about Atlassian and more.

Learning from each other:

ACA Team UP 2023 also featured talks and presentations from experts. From hot topics like AI (my favorite) to Customer Case talks. I contributed to the overall knowledge- and experience-sharing hub, as with my colleague, I delivered the talk on the Task Reporting and Task Management System in Confluence featuring our Handy Macros for Confluence and reflecting on your attendance at the past events, which talks have left a lasting impression on you? Share the insights you've gained and the knowledge you've applied to your projects.

The Global Atlassian Community:

These events bring together people from diverse backgrounds and countries, and to name just a few, I had a great time chatting with fellow Atlassian enthusiasts from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Ukraine and hope to cross paths someday in the future. Share stories of the connections you've forged and the international perspectives you've gained. How has this global network enriched your professional life?

Beyond the Sessions:

Apart from talks, the event was very eco-friendly and hospitable. The highlight was also the mini-games near each sponsor booth randomly assigned by the event host. We had a mini-throw game, and the show stoppers for everybody were mini-golf and KanJam. What unique experiences have you had outside the formal sessions? How have these activities contributed to your personal and professional growth?

Long Story Short:

In a digital age, the opportunity to connect in person with fellow Atlassian enthusiasts is a precious one. Let's celebrate the value of these events in expanding our horizons, building relationships, and fueling our passion for the Atlassian ecosystem.

Share your event stories and inspire others to join this incredible learning, networking, and knowledge-sharing journey together.

Looking forward to your Atlassian stories,
