Get a $5 Enterprise Wiki and Help Some Kids: Atlassian’s Stimulus Plan


Last week, we saw a fun race to a million followers on Twitter, where the real winners were people around the world suffering from Malaria. Business combined with charity.

This week, Atlassian is running its own special event: the Atlassian Stimulus Package. Here are the details:

  • $5 annual license for Confluence wiki
  • $5 annual license for JIRA issue tracker
  • Available to teams of up to five people
  • First year comes with support and maintenance included
  • Proceeds go to Room to Read, which builds much-needed schools and libraries in developing countries
  • Pricing is available for five days from April 20 – 24, 2009

Not too shabby, particularly when you consider that both Confluence and JIRA start at $1,200 each. And considering where Gartner positioned Atlassian in its Social Software Magic Quadrant


…it’s not a bad way to get your feet wet in the social software world. And help some children in need as well.

  1. Thanks for helping us get the word out, Hutch. The response from your readers and the community at large has been unbelievable. We’re less than a half day into the five-day offering and we’re already at more than half our fund-raising goal.

  2. One other thing – if folks are able to pay more than $5 for the license, they might consider donating the excess directly to Room To Read.
