Seems just like yesterday when we all got together to enjoy a beer (or many, among other things) over a lovely campfire at AtlasCamp, Atlassian's Annual Add-on Developer Conference Camp.

As a matter of fact, we go out of our way to make sure it doesn't feel like your standard conference -- hence the name AtlasCamp. AtlasCamp is a fun and relaxed three days of learning, networking,

Participants had six weeks to throw together one or more kick-ass add-ons for a chance to win cash prizes totaling $45,000 USD. Codegeist ended last week (16 July). This year's was, by far, the best Codegeist we've had yet. Codegeist 2012 received 94 high quality entries across six different products. We're confident that many of these new add-ons will become
