With the connect platform now supporting more Atlassian products, it's possible to craft solutions that drastically reduce the number of manual tasks your workers have to do.

Confluence Connect is Prime Time

With the availability of a large number of new capabilities and increasing number of add-ons being built for Confluence Connect, now is the time to build Confluence add-ons and take advantage of the unfulfilled use cases in the Cloud. We've added APIs and enhanced macros however we've also introduced two new types of add-ons: Theming and Solutions. We'll cover each of these with the building blocks you'll need and examples of how to use them. We'll also show you how to integrate these types of add-ons with Confluence features to provide a great experience for users.

Connecting Connect with Spring Boot and Other New Frameworks

As Atlassian Connect is the way forward for building add-ons on Atlassian Cloud, Spring Boot is the way forward for building Spring web applications. Now you can combine the best of both worlds with the new open source library: Atlassian Connect Starter for Spring Boot. This will get you bootstrapped with an Atlassian Connect add-on in just a few minutes. In this talk you will learn:

As a we will write a simple macro for Confluence and show how much time Spring Boot can save you.Also get an overview of some of the other new frameworks our community has been building.

Serverless Connect: Using AWS Lambda to Write an Atlassian Connect Add-on

While working with CI/CD vendors to build Atlassian Connect add-ons for Bitbucket Cloud, I noticed a pattern: every vendor wanted more than just Bitbucket Cloud, they wanted to integrate with multiple Atlassian products and for both Cloud and Server. I wanted to build my own Atlassian Connect add-on as a hub-and-spoke to help solve this problem. I knew that writing Connect add-ons is easy but I worried more about the operating overhead. So I build my own Connect add-on using AWS Lambda, and related services. Along the way I discovered why the architectural patterns of CQRS and Event Sourcing are well suited to integration problems, how to use AWS Lambda to implement those patterns, and what related AWS services complement Lambda for a Connect add-on.

The Art of PaaS: Lessons Learned Running a Platform for Hundreds of Microservices

Connect has taken you on a journey to SaaS. Over the past few years, you've learned how running a service is deeply different from building a plugin. You've discovered tips, tricks and patterns to evolve your service while keeping it running 24/7. Now, you're managing not just one service, but a multitude – and perhaps you're wondering what needs to change as you head towards dozens or even hundreds of services.

At Atlassian, we've taken on this challenge with Micros, our internal Platform as a Service that helps developers across Atlassian easily deploy and run microservices in AWS. Running this platform involves constant decisions to strike the right balance between stability, progress, governance and flexibility. We'll tell you the lessons we've learned – both technical and non-technical – walking these tightropes.
