Blog: Atlassian offering licenses to Confluence and Jira for $5
Atlassian has made a name for itself with its java based opensource development tools. Confluence (an Intranet Wiki tool) and Jira (a bug tracker) are two of the companies Flagship products. Calling this their "Atlassian Stimulus Project", they are offering 5 user licenses for $5 each, and donating the proceeds to "Room to Read".
I have used both Confluence and Jira as well as Fisheye, and they are all excellent products, that don't quite have competitors in the LAMP world. Any small development company will find Jira a great bug tracker, capable of complex workflows. Confluence is a Wiki on steriods, that can be used in a variety of ways as an interanet tool, and for design, and internal and external documentation. Both products are modular and there are a substantial number of plugins that increase their functionality. I'd urge any small company to take a look at this offer, which is only good for the next 5 days.
