Help me justify cost of Summit Edited

I convinced my boss that after 10 years as an Atlassian admin, I needed to go to Summit and she agreed! But I didn't realize all of the training sessions cost extra so now I'm concerned I can't justify the cost. Is it worth it to go without registering for any additional training? I am a pretty advanced admin for JIRA and Confluence but need to wrap my head around what all of the other tools could do for us. 

Thanks!

Hi Kathy,

Congrats on finally convincing your boss!  Summit is a must do for the networking and ideas you'll get!  I've posted some justification information you might be able to leverage here:  https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/how-get-your-boss-send-you-atlassian-summit-2016-user-rachel-wright  

After 10 years of admin experience, I'd think your knowledge level would be beyond the target audience for the training sessions.  The certification prep course(s) might appeal to you however.

Hope this helps,

Rachel Wright

Thanks so much! That's exactly what I was looking for. 

Are there any discounts codes available we could use? We have a very small budget for education and i am trying to figure out how we can afford to send even 1 person to do one of the trainings. Anything available you could share?
