What are the resources that you use to learn more about Atlassian Products? Edited

Fabian Lopez Community Champion May 24, 2018

I am gathering information about resources available for Atlassian product knowledge transferring for a presentation in our local Atlassian User Group.

I want to group them in four categories

From Atlassian - Free (e.g. AUG, Community, You Tube, blogposts, etc.)

From Atlassian - Paid (e.g. University, books, etc.)

From Community - Free (e.g. youTube users channels, blogposts, etc.)

From Community - Paid (e.g. Partners training, books, etc.)

 

Thanks in advance for your feedback and I hope this page will help those that are looking for some training and knowledge transferring.

Regards,

Fabian Lopez

Pinging the minds of @Ann Worleyand @Nic Brough [Adaptavist]though not a sustainable model :D

It's not often thatI get the chance to steal @Nic Brough's thunder, but the shiny new  http://learn.adaptavist.com/ is a bit different than the other paid for learning resources out there.

Jonatan, lol you are not the only one ;)

From Atlassian - free

I really love the microsites offered by Atlassian; not sure if there's an official list of all these somewhere but I have benefitted from all of these (general interest, not just product-specific):

 

For non-beginner content, the product release notes are always helpful! There's a rollup up all the latest product releases with links in to the release notes at https://iapetus.fyi (the release notes are Atlassian-provided, but that rollup site is third-party)

From Atlassian - paid

I've heard that the exam prep materials are decent. The online courses seem to be well received as well. No personal experience with either though.

As always, your answer is great. Thanks for sharing!!!!

Community articles are a great way. You may not find that the article is 100% for you, but often times you will get a nugget of valuable info that you can use elsewhere.

Fabian Lopez Community Champion Jun 02, 2018

 I agree, same with the Atlassian microsites and blogposts

Good News. I got confirmation that I will be presenting this topic at the upcoming Atlassian Barcelona Summit, so if you develop training or knowledge sharing, please let me know.

I want to be sure that those attending to the presentation will have a lot of resources of all types so they can decide what to consume. My goal is to be objective and comprehensive, but all help on this will be beneficial for the whole Atlassian ecosystem so feel free to chime in

 

All information gathered will be shared on AUG meetings an blogposts as well. Thanks for your help

 

Regards

Fabian

Fabian, that is great news about Barcelona, so jealous.  I will put you in the list for the Adaptavist After Party if you are interested.  I already have your contact info:)

When you want to watch or read about something there are plan of resources that you can find. The problem starts when you want to play a little bit with Atlassian products. Where to find a sandbox? How easily set up whole environment and in practice learn more how everything is working.

For many years Atlassian Dragon Slayer was very useful. Game it is still available.. Unfortunately it is completely out of date since you would need to install a EOL versions (e.g JIRA 6.x). I posted a discussion about this but there was not too much of discussion really (https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Jira-discussions/Here-Be-Dragons-should-be-updated-or-not/m-p/749477#M2688) . I would really like to see this game updated, but probably it will not be.. sadly..

I learned by working with Atlassian's products like Clover, Stash, Jira, Confluence, FishEye/Crucible) on several companies. Also by reporting issues to Atlassian and browsing the community information on official pages and internet available information.

I have been using Jira since 2003 and at that time i have started learning from the company info and products

 

Hope this help

That is perfect thanks a lot!

I have been using the below sites to learn more skills to use confluence the way we need to:

Thanks very much for the links provided, I will check them and include it on my presentation as well.

Hi Fabian! Atlassian Solutions partners are a great source of Atlassian Product knowledge. Some of them, like Valiantys and //Seibert/Media (among others), offer regular free webinars that seek to inform attendees about Atlassian products. As well, many Parters host "Atlassian Days" throughout the year, a number of which are free to attend and likewise contain a lot of useful information; we've attended all of Deiser's Enterprise Days, and the Atlassian content is always top-notch. 

Fabian Lopez Community Champion Jun 06, 2018

Wonderful. I really appreciate that and I will add that to the presentation.

Is there a place in the community where we collect all the Atlassian related events, that should be very good resource for users around the world and it could be organized by region or country, or global in the case of webinars (probably by language or timezone ....)

A community calendar were we all can post upcoming events (free should be ideal so we don't overload it

@Monique van den Berg @Erica Moss  i think this is a good idea for the comunnity wish list ;)

@Fabian Lopez Feel free to post that as a suggestion in our Feedback forum!

Well, since there are so many good suggestions here can I post the link to this page?

https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Confluence-questions/What-are-the-resources-that-you-use-to-learn-more-about/qaq-p/804638

Or would that create a feedback loop that will destroy the universe?

Fabian Lopez Community Champion Jul 02, 2018

Haha, I tested and the Universe is still ok. Thanks a lot!

I remember those days... I hope they create something similar for the new versions of the products
