Hello. My company is running server based Confluence/Jira. I design eLearning and have been assigned to be the lead architect in the Education component we will be adding as we build a customer experience portal. I have experience in installing a Moodle Server and managing learners, but I am new to Confluence.
I have enrolled in the free Atlassian training. I would like complete control of Confluence hands on, as I take my training and do the hands on homework they provide.
Should I download the Server software and install on a desktop I have (not currently being used) or should I use the Cloud version. I want the experience/interface to match what my company is using (Server Based). Thank you
If your company is using server version then it makes sense to practice on server version.
Fortunately you can easily install it on your local computer or a test environment. Just install the application files from atlassian.com and create evaluation license.
For learning the official documentation is always the most up to date source.
I hope it helps.
