Taming Godzilla: Drupal Development with JIRA and Confluence

JIRA is a powerful issue tracking and collaboration tool, but it can easily become a monster. While the Atlassian tools can accelerate agile development and empower teams to work together more effectively, they can also quickly become a burden to users and create unnecessary overhead for team members who are just trying to get their job done. This presentation will show how JIRA and Confluence can be leveraged to help teams work together throughout the lifecycle of a Drupal development project. From marketing, through sales, discovery, development, deployment, and support, learn about how these tools can help your teams communicate and collaborate more effectively: 

  • Elaborating requirements with "living documentation" 
  • Agile sprint planning and (even when you might still need to be Waterfall)
  • Determining when to use Kanban boards and when to use Scrum boards 
  • Creating meaningful and informative reports that people will actually use
  • Integrating with devops tools to make your job easier 
  • Providing painless support to your customers 

Examining case studies that range from small startups to enterprise organizations, this presentation will share best practices to help teams successfully tame the monster and use JIRA and Confluence to work together more efficiently.
