Networking and Community

Networking activities allowed us to make valuable connections and engage with other Atlassian enthusiasts. Our tip: Bring (digital) business cards and take notes during conversations to follow up effectively.

Luka:
“It’s always nice to talk to other Atlassian enthusiasts. It’s great to hear in person how much our apps have helped users.”

Rainer:
“This was my first Atlassian event, and I was blown away by how versatile and curious the community is. I had many great conversations with current customers, and the feedback was very helpful—especially as a developer who doesn’t interact with users daily. It was also enlightening to talk to prospects and partners about the ecosystem and how Jira and other Atlassian products are used.”

Manuel:
“I really enjoyed the conversations with developers from other marketplace partners. I was surprised by how many clients are using data center solutions.”

Valeria:
“Attending team ’24 for the first time as a partner manager was invaluable. Networking with solution partners and other marketplace vendors was incredibly beneficial. The openness and collaborative atmosphere were impressive and facilitated the exchange of ideas and insights.”

Expectations vs. Reality

Our expectations were not only met but exceeded, especially regarding the event’s size and professionalism. Our tip: Wear comfortable shoes and dress in layers to adapt to varying indoor temperatures.

Markus:
“There were no disappointments. I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious venue. The air conditioning was a bit too cold, but my warm and stylish codefortynine hoodie kept me cozy. Additionally, the venue’s sheer size meant I walked miles every day.”
