User Group Meeting Topics

Hi all, I'm one of the Chicago area Atlassian User Group (AUG) Leaders.  I'm wondering in general - what topics would people like to learn about at a user group meeting?

Perhaps, lets kick it off there.   What things are useful for you, what would motivate you to come out and have lunch with us or come to an evening event?

For example, if we did a Jira administration tips and tricks evening event, would that be cool?  Would a Jira from download to installed with NGinx configured be cool?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions! :)

Guys, I co-lead the group with Greg and he really, really needs the help.  Please help out. :)

@Gregory Van Den Ham I'm brand new to the Atlassian team and my job is literally to meet all of your content hopes and dreams! I will definitely contact you to set up some time to chat 1:1, in the meantime, will you repost this question to the AUG Leader group here? Cheers, and talk soon,


you bet!  I do have a lot of dreams :)

Hey @Gregory Van Den Ham,

I found our Sydney AUG June very interesting!

Did you already run a playbook AUG?



Interesting.   I'd like to see a step by step write up for it.   We have an Aug leader instance  for each city that is Jira and Confluence.  Not sure about the other applications.  We can't create logins on those instances however.

We did run a Confluence multiedit challenge when it was first available - that was a lot of fun.

Hey @Gregory Van Den Ham,

Bhushan, who ran it in Sydney, published this write up:

Sydney AUG June Edition


Is it a good starting point?




Yup it helps ;).  I think if aug leaders got 10 user licenses to server products or more access to create users for hands on lab type stuff that would be awesome.
