Reading Time: 2 minutes
Codegeist is a remote hackathon where participants build innovative cloud applications for their favorite Atlassian tools. These apps can be for individuals and for teams, and participants may even want to list their apps on the Atlassian Marketplace. From newbies to experts, everyone is welcome to participate from May 19 (Tuesday) to July 13 (Monday) for a chance to win over $300k in prizes.
Think about solutions that would help teams work smarter, improve workflows and make lives easier. We’re looking for apps in two tracks:
- Built with Connect: Create production-ready apps and integrations for Atlassian Cloud tools, including Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket.
- Built with Forge: Create trusted, scalable apps in minutes while Forge, our new cloud app development platform, takes care of infrastructure and security. Forge is still in beta, so this is an excellent opportunity to take it for a spin and tell us what you think.
Plus, you can use the Trello customization platform to build Trello Power-Ups, too! There are plenty of opportunities to win big – pick a topic that inspires you and start building.
Building Atlassian cloud apps
Recently, the Atlassian Marketplace reached an important milestone: $1B in lifetime sales. This is all thanks to our community of more than 25,000 developers who have helped build the Atlassian Ecosystem into what it is today. What’s even better is that we’ve seen 60% year-over-year growth in cloud app sales. This tells us something important: our customers rely on the cloud to get things done. Two cloud apps are added to the Atlassian Marketplace every business day, and we hope your Codegeist submissions are next.
Looking for inspiration?
