It is a sad day in Mudville: We are not interviewing Paris Hilton at the User Group, and we are not giving away free iPhones. If you can get over that…
Stanford University is the idyllic setting for our First Inaugural Bay Area User Group. The spine-tingling, white-knuckle highlights include:
- Customers presenting a variety of case studies from Sony, Apple, and Polycom
- Scott Farquhar, founder and CEO
- Chris Kohlhardt demoing the groovy Gliffy plugin to Confluence
- … and more!
Oh and lest I forget: Beer! And the venerable, Collectors Item: Atlassian T-Shirts, for which folks have been known to sacrifice their first born. The T-shirts are exceedingly more popular than iPhones, we have discovered.
And rumor has it that in attendance will be a few of the Enterprise Irregulars. You heard it here first.
Normally I don’t block quote an entire blog but this one I could simply not resist:
As part of my current role, I am integrating several products with SAP Business One and have been utilising the great resources that are SDN (SAP Developer Network). Today as I was looking through the SDN Wiki and while waiting for a page to load the usual SAP logo flickered over to the Atlassian logo for a few seconds.
I suppose it should come as no surprise that SAP would use Atlassian Confluence as its Wiki given Atlassian’s impressive list of customers, nevertheless I was pleasantly surprised.
It may be debatable whether the five year old Atlassian is still a Startup. We will give them the benefit of the doubt seeing as their stationery cupboards are still open, but Startup or not they stand as an inspiration for countless young Australian tech companies and entrepreneurs and for that they deserve a mention.
Maybe SAP should change their SDN logo to ‘Powered by Atlassian Confluence’.
Thanks Dave with the Mysterious Last Name.
