Who developed Jira 1.0


my name is Alisher. I am a student from Finland. Together with other students we are making a report about your product - Jira. In the introduction part of the report we want to add some history about the product, and would like to know who was involved in the developed of Jira 1.0, when the software was first released in 2002. 

So far, we found on the Internet the following information only: Atlassian was established in 2001 by Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar, and in 2002 Jira 1.0 was released. However, we could not find info on how many people were in Atlassian by 2002, how many people actually developed Jira 1.0. Is it that Jira 1.0 was developed solely by Mike Cannon-Brookes and Scott Farquhar?

Thank you.

Hi @Al Ali , I can't answer your question, but I found a little bit of information that might help on this page:  Scroll to the bottom, under the header "A brief history".  There's a cool timeline feature to the right.  It sure sounds like Scott and Mike created it together and hired others later.

Good luck with your project!
