Atlassian’s annual user conference, the biggest global event of the year, was held in San Jose, California. Teams from 42 different countries came to be inspired, transform the way they work, and witness Atlassian’s latest innovations first-hand.


Atlassian’s mission is both simple and ambitious: to unleash the potential of every team. Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian Co-Founder and Co-CEO, said: “When the work is open the full potential of the team can be accomplished. We believe that for great things to happen the world needs to be more open”.


And for the curious:

With over 3,000 apps in the Atlassian Marketplace, every team now has the ability to tailor the Atlassian experience.

Meet the new Atlassian logo!

Just as people and companies evolve, so do brands. Today, Atlassian has a new look. It’s a broad and swiping change across the brand, identity and product experience. You may notice important symbolism around teams in the new Atlassian logo – two pillars reinforcing one another reflect support, compassion, as well as competition.


Atlassian is also evolving its product logos in concert with exciting new user experience changes.

Hello, Trello!

This is Trello’s first U.S. Summit ever! Simplicity is what makes it so flexible. In JIRA there are more configurations and permissions, while Trello is more open. Trello has 25,000,000+ registered users and it’s finally launching a new desktop app. If you have used Trello’s web app before, the desktop app won’t feel significantly different as it’s a web wrapper for the web app. But you still get some native features like notifications and a handful of quick shortcuts.


Trello boards in Bitbucket Cloud

With boards in Bitbucket, you now have one place for planning, tracking, collaborating on code, testing and deploying. Trello boards in Bitbucket Cloud opens up product development work across all teams involved, from product managers and engineers to designers and marketers and more, without requiring non-technical teams to learn Bitbucket.

“The Trello integration with Bitbucket makes it easy for our developers to collaborate with our marketing team who want a fast and simple tool. They have access to our development backlog and can quickly add things like bugs, feature requests, or changes to the website”.

Embedded Portal in Jira Service Desk Cloud

Jira Service Desk is the best way to connect with your customers. It offers customizable portals in different languages: English, French, German, Japanese. Besides, the new Embedded Portal in Jira Service Desk Cloud lets support teams offer their customers embedded in-context help from anywhere. Instead of end users having to navigate away from the web page where they need help, and send an email or open a different support site, users can now easily raise a Jira Service Desk request, report a bug or submit product feedback from within the web page they are already in.


Keep in mind, these are just a few highlights of the ways in which Atlassian is opening up work for software teams. The future is very exciting, and we’re eager to see further updates.
