Happy Wednesday Everyone!

As we begin to come down from all the excitement of Team '23, I received a reminder that I need to renew a few of my Atlassian certifications.  This reminded me that it's been a while since I have checked out the catalog of new courses in the Atlassian University.

I've discovered there are a number of new courses and with the new pricing model, now feels like a great time to get some training.

So, my question this week: Are are you planning to take any training in the near future? and if so, what are you looking to learn about?  I should also state, this doesn't have to be Atlassian specific.  If you are looking to learn something else, I'd love to hear about that too!

Personally, I'll be working toward renewing my certifications through the: Jira Governance & Housekeeping Pro Skill Badge!

Let me know what you are thinking about doing yourself in the comments below.

Have a great rest of the week!

Aye. Ever since they announced the price drop for the courses, I've aimed to go for Managing Jira Service Projects certification and to check Managing Jira Service Projects course. Also, Atlassian Cloud Organization Admin learning path looks really promising and I hope to catch some time for that this year. We've been quite booked for some time now so I didn't have the chance to start working on these.

Apart from that, I still have to finalize my ITIL4 certification so I guess that's a priority 😅

Thank you for your post, @Jimmy Seddon !

I also strongly believe in the fact that we should never stop learning!

Personally, I have also received the reminders from Atlassian to renew a couple of my Atlassian certifications. So, I will be working toward renewing these certifications but haven't decided yet on which Pro Skills Badge course I will be going for. But, yoir post has given me some direction and I think that "Jira Governance & Housekeeping" can be a great option to pursue.

Additionally, this year, I am planning to get some training or online courses to learn more and improve my skills on some "DevOps tools" and "AWS Cloud platform". I am hoping for the best in achieving these training and learning goals within this year.

Have a great Wednesday and rest of the week, everyone!

OH! I took a few intro Atlassian Trello Courses - i really like all the Butler integrations and want to fully automate all the dragging of cards we do. I made a label that tags and moves and sets the card up for the next step. Fun. So, advanced Butler commands is my future jam.
In my off time I am studying motion graphics and learning to be a pro in After Effects. Currently in my course of like 500 hours I am at 7% Pro already!

I have a couple more certifications I need to get to the Atlassian Certified Expert level. I'm particularly interested in "ACP-AOA Atlassian Cloud Organization Admin Certification" which is still listed as "Coming soon".

Outside of Atlassian skills I'll be looking to re-certify as an AWS Cloud Practitioner, and the levels beyond that later in the year.

I have never taken an Atlassian Certification class. I guess I'm missing out so I'll look into it! I just recently got two SAFe Certs; SAFe Agilest and SAFE for Product Managers.

I am often working on a badge or a certification. I wish I had more time to spend continuously on them, but it rarely works out that way. Next is the Reporting and Dashboards badge.

I'd like to get some supplemental certifications, such as AWS, that would make me a stronger Jira admin overall.

I'm fairly new to Jira but I'm a Certified Scrum Product Owner. I'd love to take any basic free classes since I don't have any funding from work right now. What are the best to get started with?

Have you checked out Atlassian University? They have several free self-paced courses. You can set up your own free Jira Cloud instance for hands-on experimentation, though there are some features that are not available with the free subscription.

Just reached Sapling, but learning a lot and writing tons of ScriptRunner Groovy scripts to augment things the way I need to do.  The on-line help is very worthwhile.

Wow! New to this, but keen to take up the Managing Jira Projects for Cloud certification. Anyone knows if there's one around Jira Product Discovery?
