Yesterday, ACA IT-Solutions made its office in Ghent available to Maarten Cautreels, who organized the ABUG-19 event.
Around 5:30 PM, the first guests arrived, who could enjoy some snacks and a drink right away. After everyone had arrived, the event started with Maarten’s ABUG-19 introduction and some news. Then it was Laurens Coppens’, turn, who told us about his progress at Axian towards splitting JIRA Software from the JIRA Service Desk.
After Laurens’ presentation, Maarten gave a short summary of the Atlassian Team Tour. This was followed by a short pause with some snacks and drinks. After that, it was the turn of our own Walter Buggenhout to give his presentation. He told us about how to make Portfolio for JIRA work for your team and how the scheduling algorithm works. The presentation was very clear, made evident by an experienced JIRA user who exclaimed that he now, after 3 years, finally understands Portfolio. A big compliment for Walter! 😉
We closed ABUG-19 by networking with some food and drinks. It definitely was an interesting and fun night!
