Atlassian and agile working on Clearvision’s Think Atlassian Road Trip

In this post, we're sharing our top level takeaways from Clearvision's recent Think Atlassian Road Trip. Read on to see the slides and learn more!

The Clearvision team recently hit the road, stopping in Washington D.C, Philadelphia and New York to discuss all things Atlassian.

As with all Clearvision events, we weren’t just there to share our own views and experiences with agile working and the Atlassian tools. We were there to learn from the talks and discussion on the night, and as ever, it didn’t disappoint.

If you couldn’t make the evenings, want a refresh, or are simply on the lookout to find out more about Atlassian and agile working, you’re in the right place. Here’s the latest from on the road.
