We have an amazing community of developers that have built nearly 2,000 add-ons you can find in the Atlassian Marketplace. Once a year these developers get together for a global add-on hackathon called Codegeist.
Codegeist 2015 was one of the most successful Atlassian hackathons ever. We received 140+ submissions – a 50% improvement over the previous competition. We’ve seen a huge demand for cloud based add-ons, so this year we had several prizes just for cloud add-ons.
The competition wrapped up last week, and now we’re thrilled to announce this year’s Codegeist winners.
Best overall add-on
Designed to improve the accuracy and speed of the estimation process. Developers simply submit their vote using the mobile app and the Scrum Master confirms or re-estimates until the story point estimation is agreed. The final result is then automatically inserted into the Jira Agile board.
Popular choice add-on
Lucidchart OnPrem is built for strict behind-the-firewall requirements. No diagram data ever leaves your Confluence instance. The top tool for flowcharts, process maps, network diagrams, mind maps, UML, ERD, BPMN, org charts, mockups, wireframes and more.
Best newcomer cloud add-on
Presenter for Confluence turns any Confluence page into a beautiful, clean, and hassle-free slideshow – directly in your browser. All you need to do is hit the “present” button and you’re good to go.
Best Jira Cloud add-on
