Today in Barcelona, Spain we kicked off AtlasCamp our annual developer conference that brings together developers from around the world to talk about building what’s next. Having joined Atlassian just a few months ago, I’m incredibly energized by the strength and dedication of our developer community and partner ecosystem.

Atlassian is helping teams across all industries do amazing things. We’re helping developers at Cochlear build aural implants that allow people to hear, at The Telegraph to inform millions of readers each day, and at Lufthansa Systems to provide everything from maps to entertainment in the aviation industry. The common thread between all teams is the need to work smarter and faster. And we see more and more teams choosing to collaborate in the cloud. In fact, over half of our customers choose to collaborate in the cloud, and an even higher number of new customers select our cloud offerings.

During today’s keynote I shared new product advancements to support this growth, and change the team productivity equation in the cloud. At a time when the speed of software development is getting even faster, our Atlassian teams are focused on delivering new tools to help you work smarter and be more connected with your team.

Introducing Bitbucket Pipelines – continuous delivery built within Bitbucket Cloud

Because more software projects are built in the cloud, teams are struggling to apply on-premise continuous integration and delivery tools to this new platform. Teams need a way to start delivering easily and continue delivery at a rapid pace in the cloud.

That’s where Bitbucket Pipelines comes in.

Bitbucket pipelines

Bitbucket Pipelines is a continuous delivery service built into Bitbucket Cloud. A first for code collaboration products, developers can now build and deploy code on every push to their Bitbucket repository and manage the entire development workflow within Bitbucket.

Mobile for JIRA Software and Confluence

While our history is rooted in development teams, our products have increasingly become the central touchpoint across all teams – from software and IT teams to HR, marketing, finance, and legal teams. Mobile is critical to how these teams operate. A native mobile experience will provide a lift in productivity while supporting how people across all teams get work done today.

New Cloud Add-Ons in the Atlassian Marketplace

The Atlassian Marketplace is the central hub for teams to customize Atlassian products with add-ons built by our developer ecosystem. It enables a high level of customization for team-specific workflows and in just three years, customer adoption has far exceeded our expectations. In fact, today we announced the Atlassian Marketplace hit over $150 million in sales, with over $120 million paid to the respective developers.

With our long history of serving developers, it’s rewarding to see the developer community creating significant revenue streams and building successful businesses centered on extending Atlassian products. Earlier this month, Zephyr, one of the largest vendors in the Atlassian Marketplace, raised over $30M in funding, and many other Marketplace vendors generate over $1M in revenue each year.

The growth of the Atlassian Marketplace is good for developers and advances team collaboration for our customers faster than we could do ourselves. At AtlasCamp, many of our partners launched new add-ons that support Atlassian’s cloud offerings. For example, Germany-based K15t rolled out new cloud versions of their popular Scroll Confluence add-ons; ALM Works announced their Structure.Pages add-on to manage Confluence pages alongside JIRA issues in the same hierarchies; and Spanish partner Comalatech launched Canvas for Bitbucket.

JIRA Service Desk Connect opens add-ons for fastest growing product

Today we also launched JIRA Service Desk Connect, making it possible for developers to build add-ons for our fast-growing issue and project tracking software for IT teams.

The new integration architecture allows add-ons to be built and embedded within the product’s user interface and workflows. Developers can build add-ons that either create and update requests or extend JIRA Service Desk’s automation capabilities to react to changes in requests.

JIRA Service Desk Connect

For example, an add-on could create requests based on an incoming voice call with attached text transcription. Another could pull customer and organization information from sources such as LinkedIn or Salesforce and allow them to reference support tickets quickly.

Atlassian joins the Open API Initiative and open sources RADAR

APIs, and in particular REST, form the backbone of Atlassian’s developer ecosystem, and the success of our partners is directly related to the quality and usability of our REST APIs. Collectively, we have a lot to gain from an open, widely accepted definition language for REST APIs. We’re committed to actively contributing to the standard and are now a member of the Open API Initiative and the Linux Foundation, alongside industry leaders like Google, Microsoft, PayPal, and others. Learn more on our Developer Blog.

As we add Open API support to our products, we will automatically generate documentation. This will replace our existing, handcrafted API documentation. We will use a custom site generator, RADAR, which we have released as open source to be used by any Open API provider. The project is hosted at https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/radar.

Wait, there’s more!

Atlassian and our entire ecosystem have come a long way together. Teams around the world have set their sights high and depend on us to reach their goals. It’s why we live and breathe team collaboration. It’s why we believe in the power of choice. Whether cloud, on-premise, or data center is the best choice for you, our mission remains the same: make team collaboration faster. Make it easier. Make it second nature so your team can focus on accomplishing what’s next.

Check out my keynote from AtlasCamp to learn more – it will be posted on our AtlasCamp website shortly!
