The Atlassian technical writers invite you to one of our famous choc fests – uh, doc sprints! This time we’re targeting the Confluence developer documentation. Let’s build some simple but lustworthy Confluence add-ons, and write them up so that other people can follow in our footsteps.

A doc sprint is an event where some seriously cool people spend time together, building plugins and other add-ons, and crafting tutorials around them. This time it’s happening in Sydney, San Francisco, Amsterdam, and online for everywhere else.

Yes, for the first time ever, a doc sprint is happening in Amsterdam. Reliable sources tell us there’s a divine chocolate shop just around the corner from the Atlassian office. The ideal venue for a doc sprint!

  • Kudos from the Atlassian technical writers. We’ll write up our results on the Atlassian blog and you’ll be inducted into the Doc Sprint Hall of Fame.
  • Learn while you write. We’ll have some Atlassian developers on tap to help us over the sticky spots. Pair with a technical writer to get those words buzzing.
  • Chocolate. Indubitably, there will be chocolate in there somewhere.

A doc sprint is the real ShipIt, where what you build really does ship in short order. So join us if you can!
