Aside of what I mentioned in my intro article in the Welcome Center, I'll dive right into Team 2021: I'm excited to hear about new products (especially from Atlassian) and product updates (from partners too!).

Team Central sounds pretty nifty, and Jira Work Management delivers quality of life improvements I've been wanting for years.

Tagging in @Bridget to introduce yourself (since you started this!) and @Mirek who I see posting on here! 😂

  • What you're excited to learn at Team 2021: Like Bridget, I'm always down for a productivity talk that teaches me how to be a bit more efficient! I'm also excited to connect with our Leaders during our Community programming.

Speaking of accents, I just watched Newsies Broadway on Disney Plus, and couldn't stop cringing at the overexaggerated New York accents... Can't wait for live theater to restart again though!

Dirk Ronsmans Community Leader Mar 22, 2021

Yes Ma'am!

Always happy to throw some (fun) facts around.

  • Where you're from: I'm from a little country called Belgium, mainly known for beer, "french" fries and chocolate. Was born on one side of the country near the North Sea (Ostend) but currently live in a town call Leuven (or at least close to it).  You can get from one side of the country to the other in about 2-3hrs so moving around doesn't mean that much.
  • Where you work:  I work as an ITSM Consultant for a company called CTG, this means that I am involved in pretty much anything that has to do with Service Management going from analysis to implementation. We're actually an American based company (Buffalo has our HQ) but I'm part of the European branch. Our current CEO is actually a Belgian too! 
  • What you like to do in your free time: I have a lot of interests.. but nothing too outspoken. Mainly a lot of tv, cooking, running, reading, .. there's never enough time in a day! Oh and I like coffee, a lot! I can literally spend hours reading through blogs, youtube videos,... about the subject.
  • What you're excited to learn at Team 2021: It's my first real summit (even tho it's remote) so I'm not sure what to expect actually! I hope to see some sneak peaks, get excited about the year to come. I guess anything to do with JSM and maybe Jira Work Management would be on the top of my list.
  • Photos of your family, pets, favorite vacation, sourdough loaf, etc

Oh and this picture I took just last weekend:

it's just a picture of a piece of land so doesn't mean much but I bought it last weekend! So once we finish building a house here this will be the view when I sip my morning coffee for the next 30-40 years! (super excited!)

  • Where you're from: I'm from a little place called Stoke on Trent in the middle of England.  It's the international home of pottery, so if you've heard of Wedgwood or Minton they're both localimage.png
  • Where you work: I work for Bestway Retail, we're the largest off licence retailer in the UK - our main brands are Bargain Booze and Wine Rack
  • What you like to do in your free time: In my spare time I like to walk our pug, Peggy.  I also like reading and losing myself in a sitcom.

If I could do something for everyone or have a magic wand I would get rid of waste.. mostly plastic that could make our planet a better place to leave hoping at the same time that everyone soon would invest in renewable energy ..

Beach Pollution GIF by Dolphin Discovery

Personally recently do not have much free time unfortunately due to amount of work.. Pandemic, lockdowns, etc. kills opportunity to travel which I really like and of course play my favorite basketball :( ...

You Can Do It Basketball GIF

... so everyday I try to find something to do at home that does not require using my mobile phone or computer but it is really hard .. it would mean that I need to stop checking Community which I cannot do! :)

I really miss in-person events, but I am definitively joining (Summit) Team 2021 and even this would be digital event again like last year looking forward to see all those sessions, keynotes to get power and motivation for another year up until next (Summit) which I hope we can meet with each other again!

Well, I would really like to nominate @Scott Farquhar and @Mike Cannon-Brookes to say few words here, but probably they are recently busy preparing their speeches for Team 2021 ;) so I have to deal with that and wait until we hear from them on keynotes :)

Can't wait! This is so exciting!

Yes, that is one handsome chicken, I know!

While I may not be donning my feathers or beak any more, I am here to cheer you on towards earning a Certification this year. It's not too late to enroll in our free Certification Accelerator Experience, as part of Team '21. You'll get a refreshed study guide—with all-new sample questions—plus have the change to learn alongside others with our target-date Study Groups on Atlassian Community. It's an all-new approach for preparing—and passing!—an Atlassian Certification exam. You can do it!

giphy

In addition to the Certification Accelerator Experience, I'm really looking forward to hearing our Team '21 keynotes—especially Malcolm Gladwell and Katie Sowers—and watching everything around Team Practices and Work Management.

I'm most interested in talking with all y'all about how you learn to use Jira, Confluence, and all of our Atlassian products. What's working best? What's not? What gets you excited about learning in a professional environment?

Looking forward to meeting you!

I'm really excited to learn more about Cloud next features during Team 2021. 

I like to go fishing and walking in the forest. 
I was published on Atlassian blog about a fishing usecase in Jira :)

Hi, everyone! Some of you know me already, some don't. I'm Esther.

  • Where you're from: I was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, and aside from college, have never lived more than 30 miles from the southern shore of Lake Michigan. I currently live on the very north edge of the city.
  • Where you work: I'm the process integrations manager for Pizza Hut U.S.
  • What you like to do in your free time: I love to read, play tennis, and go for walks when the weather is good. I also knit obsessively, since I can't sit still long enough to watch TV without having something to do with my hands.
  • What you're excited to learn at Team 2021: I have several teams who are just starting to look into devops and automated deployments, so I'll be watching a lot of the DevOps content.
  • Photos of your family, pets, favorite vacation, sourdough loaf, etc.: 

During the Barcelona Summit in 2018, I took a day trip to the medieval village of Besalu.

I was also lucky to go to Ireland in 2019; my favorite shot taken in Dublin.

And, since I have no sourdough to share, here's my most recent FO (finished object).

And this is how excited I am!

Thanks, @carolyn french

It's The Sharon Show by Casapinka, a long (7 feet!) rectangular shawl/scarf.
