Get ready for Codegeist

Hey y’all!

🎉 Codegeist is back in a big way for 2020. How big, you ask?

💰$300K in prizes big 💰

From now until July 13, we’re looking for innovative cloud 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!

What’s Codegeist? 👀

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.

Tell me more about those prizes… 💰

Are you one of those people who think, “I never win anything” any time you participate in contests and giveaways? Well, let’s just say, we’re out to change that. 😉

Codegeist provides plenty of opportunities to win big, including:

  • $55,000 grand prize for the best Connect app with second, third, fourth, and fifth place rewards, in addition to five (5) honorable mention prizes

  • $20,000 grand prize for the best Forge app, also with second, third, fourth and fifth place rewards, in addition to five (5) honorable mention prizes

  • $500 each for the top 100 eligible Forge apps

  • $5,000 each for five (5) bonus categories including Best Trello Power-Up and Best App for Remote Working

  • Atlassan Developer swag

See? There are plenty of opportunities to win big, so pick a topic that inspires you and start building.

You won't believe but just yesterday I thought "It's about time to try development in Atlassian".

Crazy timing :)

@shaziya hey there! What about building something on the Trello API that doesn't run as a power up?

@Iain Dooley Hey you! YES to building something using Trello's API – that'll be eligible as part of the contest. 😻

Hi Team,


We are going to disable our number heading plugin as it is going to licensed version  now. As a part of this will it have any other plugin which can easily replaced this one . We are currently looking for a free plugin. Please advise on this.
