Atlassian to Give Away $30,000 in Third Annual Plugin Competition

Codegeist 2008 Challenges Developers to Design the Best Atlassian Plugins

Atlassian today announced the third annual Codegeist Plugin Competition. Atlassian is giving away cash and prizes to the person or team who comes up with the coolest, most useful, most elegant plugin or extension for six of Atlassian's products.

"We know that our users have thousands of great ideas, far more than we could ever build by ourselves. So this is a perfect time to jump in and build something awesome," notes Jonathan Nolen, Director of Developer Relations for Atlassian. "We're offering $30,000 in cash prizes, gobs of software from some of our favorite Java tool-smiths and tickets to a few of the best developer conferences in the business."

A $5,000 prize will be awarded in each product category. Plugins may be built for:

JIRA: the professional issue tracker

Confluence: the enterprise wiki

Bamboo: the zen-like continuous integration server

Crowd: the dead-simple identity management solution

FishEye: the version control insight tool

Crucible: the painless peer code review tool

All entries will be judged by the Atlassian development team, based on the following four criteria: Usefulness, Creativity and Elegance, Completeness and Code Quality and Documentation. The competition is open to teams of one to three people and is open until May 9th, 2008. The winners will be announced June 15th, 2008. For more information, visit:
