It's Jobs and Careers Month, and now it's your turn to become the mentor by paying it forward.
Can you recall the first time you interacted with any Atlassian Product, Tool or Service? Do you remember which one it was? Do you remember why?
I have been a Confluence enthusiast for over a decade, and only discovered the power of Confluence (then Server, now Cloud) in 2011-12 when looking for a platform to replace our company's Linux based Apache Wiki Server. I can truly say that finding Confluence has both influenced and helped shape the journey of my career.
In college I learned about programming languages and structured systems while pursing my BS in Computer Science. Concepts such as Agile and Scrum were not taught, and the systems used to create order from chaos such as Confluence, Jira, Trello, Bitbucket, etc. were not covered or discussed. It took entering the workforce and being exposed to these concepts and platforms to recognize their value and learn how to harness their power.
Why should today's students go through the same inherently broken process of discovery, testing and adoption?
Pay it forward by sharing the following below.
