Learning from Legends

Since before the very first SydJS, our commnunity has had the support and acknowledgement of the team from Atlassian. Personnel and pizza … beverages and benches … Atlassian have been there for us exhibiting the Lengendary Support that's a hallmark of their company.

And as the community has grown, so has Atlassian, although to be fair, they've outstripped us in the growth stakes.

But that's not meant that they're outgrowing us. Many of their team got their first taste of Atlassian by attending a meetup Atlassian'd hosted, and it's why we like to showcase some of the passion that the growing team of Atlassian JavaScript developers exhibits every day.

If you want to see the kind of projects and passions the Atlassian team are famous for, then join us this month as we learn from the legends.
