Welcome to The Hub!

November’s one of our favorite months, because it includes Thanksgiving and National Cappuccino Day in the United States! If you’ve never tried it, a cappuccino is one of my favorite indulgences. It’s just espresso with hot milk and steamed milk foam. Simple but delicious!

Our recipe for The Hub, by Appfire is even simpler. We mix original shows, master classes, ebooks, app guides, and more into a helpful resource for admins, developers, ITSM pros, and anyone who uses Atlassian apps to get work done.

This month we’ve got new episodes of The BEST Shows by Appfire, a free guide for going Agile the right way, tips for optimizing your data center instance with the new Jira Guardrails, and more.
