 Scrum Australia Conference 2016


Yes, it’s on again! After two sold-out events in 2013 and 2014, Scrum Alliance are delighted to announce Scrum Australia’s third Regional Scrum Gathering. The dates to save are: April 28 – 29, 2016

2016 sees Australia’s national Scrum conference venture to Melbourne for the first time. The venue will be the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre which is just a short stroll across the Yarra from Southern Cross station and the CBD. GLiNTECH will again be silver sponsors this year with a booth and FREE coffee to keep you refreshed, so come and say "Hi" to the team.

Also at this event, you'll meet like-minded Scrum practitioners, trainers, coaches, and enthusiasts. You'll also hear amazing keynote speakers, participate in open space sessions, and deepen your Scrum knowledge. You'll also be able to meet two key Atlassian representatives at the GLiNTECH booth:

  • Martin Suntinger - Principal Product Manager for JIRA Portfolio
    Martin is responsible for the fast-growing JIRA Portfolio add-on. He built the product from the ground up as the founder and CEO of Vienna based Radiant Minds Software before the startup was acquired by Atlassian and he moved to Sydney with the entire team. 

  • Sandeep Mukhopadhyay - Product Manager for JIRA Software 
    Sandeep is a product manager for JIRA software. He is passionate about building simple software products that solve genuine problems for customers. Prior to Atlassian, he worked in product management and software engineering roles in financial services, telecom and healthcare industries.
