I'm a new member to the Chicago user group. I moved to the city a couple months ago and I'm currently working on becoming an Atlassian technology consultant. I have about five years of experience with the products and am working on getting my administrator certifications in Jira and Confluence. I'm looking forward to meeting you during the future meet-ups!
I'm also looking to connect with others who have experience/advise with Atlassian consulting. If you'd like to get in touch, here's my LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jrappley
