Thank you all for your patience, but I’m excited to finally be able to announce the winners of Atlassian’s first Codegeist Plugin Competition. In Codegeist, contestants had eight weeks to develop, document and submit a previously unreleased plugin for Jira or Confluence. With $10k in cash prizes and heaps of free software licenses at stake, the competition was fierce.
Thirty individual authors submitted thirty-one new plugins, all of which will be officially moving into the Plugin Libraries this week. Check them out for yourself as soon as possible. You’ll undoubtedly find something useful for your organization.
After exhaustively delving into the details of each plugin, the Atlassian Developers selected these four as their top picks:

First Prize

The Confluence Repository Plugin, from Dan Hardiker of Adaptavist.

Honorable Mention

Conflickr, from Aron Gombas of Midori.
The Metadata Plugin, from Andy Armstrong of Pantero.

Best Hack

The Exec Plugin from Andre Lüpke
