Atlassian Confluence Trainings

What is Atlassian Confluence?

Confluence is a collaboration platform based on wiki principles and aimed to enhance knowledge capture and sharing capabilities for project and product teams and organizations in general.

Confluence can fulfil several scenarios ranging from an organization-wide knowledge base to a dedicated team knowledge space (for example, to capture product requirements or process descriptions and instructions). It integrates nicely with many other tools, including Atlassian Jira (for product, project and task management). This allows publishing progress charts and link Jira tasks, stories and epics to Confluence pages. Every page is versioned, allowing it to revert to a specific version if needed.

Why invite me as a Confluence instructor?

I have been implementing Confluence and providing end-user training since 2010, which allowed me to build experience in organising and running high-quality functional training. The following training parameters could be varied when ordering a training:

  • on-site or online;
  • cloud or on-premise Confluence;
  • English or Russian language;
  • provided Confluence instance.
