As a product, JIRA is as well known in the software industry as the iPhone is in the mobile phone market. The bug tracking and project management software now has around 33,000 customers, including the likes of Nasa, Microsoft, and Ebay.
JIRA is a product created by Atlassian, an Australian company which was founded in 2002 by Scott Farquhar and Mike Cannon Brooks, two university drop-outs.
Today, the company is worth more than US$3 billion, and it is a household name for team solutions. This is what Forbes has said about the company: "Atlassian is to software as Apple is to design”, and “If software is eating the world, then Atlassian is its chief.”
Atlassian is investing in Vietnam not only for the software development capability that has been proven by a blooming outsource industry, but also for the creative and innovative potential required for great product development.
A JIRA development team was set up in October 2014, and this team is expected to grow to around 50 people by the end of 2015. An unmissable opportunity for the Vietnamese software industry to learn how to build great products that bring strong values to the world.
The explosive JIRA Landing event in Vietnam organized by Atlassian is going to take off on March 21 at the InterContinental Asiana Saigon Hotel.
By joining this conference with inspiring talks and useful workshops, participants can learn more about how Atlassian directly integrates customers’ needs into the development process by influencing Agile approaches, dev team distribution, as well as product balance between QA, design, and product management.
Bryan Rollins, GM of JIRA, and Nick Menere, JIRA’s Head of Engineering will also join the day to share their knowledge and experience as well as discuss how the company successfully turned JIRA into the powerhouse it is today.
