The Wittified team surveys its growing customer base and follows support forums to find pain points within Atlassian products, as well as encourages users to send requests for new apps.
Wester also looks inward to his own development experience for inspiration: “I initially built our Web Fragment Finder app to solve my own challenges while trying to find extension points within each of Atlassian’s products. Once I realized it was a common issue, I released Web Fragment Finder on the Atlassian Marketplace so other app developers could benefit from it like I have.”
Wittified maintains an exhaustive release cycle in order to ensure that its apps can support multiple versions of Atlassian products. The team leverages Bamboo and Bitbucket Server to simplify and automate integration testing - one of the most time-consuming aspects of the software release cycle.
Wittified has also branched out into Atlassian Cloud products, quickly adding users for its Connect apps that make it easy to customize the Cloud product experience in Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket. So far, Wittified has experienced fast uptake on the new Cloud offerings and is excited for the future.
