About this event

Since the early days of Atlassian, the vision has been to combine the collective force of Atlassian with an ecosystem of developers. As a result, more than 160,000 customers continue to choose Atlassian products because of their power and flexibility.

Today, the Atlassian Ecosystem has grown into a community of more than 25,000 members, consisting of in-house developers who build custom apps for their teams and third-party developers who build apps for the Atlassian Marketplace. As one of the largest enterprise software marketplaces in the world, we’re on track to reach a milestone that few others have: $1 billion in total lifetime sales.

The real value, however, comes from the power of extensions to expand the functionality of the Atlassian platform and help teams achieve more each day. This value is represented by the 4,000-plus apps and integrations available to customers through our Marketplace, as well as the tens of thousands of private apps – seven times the amount on the Marketplace – built by in-house developers for their own organizations. 

Atlassian cloud development platform empowers developers to engage with an ever-growing ecosystem.

The new standard in app development for the cloud. Optimize your team’s workflow with a serverless platform that offers security by default.

Forge will empower developers to more easily build and run enterprise-ready cloud apps that integrate with Atlassian products. 

The Forge platform is a reimagining of cloud app development for the Atlassian ecosystem, composed of three advanced components:

  1. A serverless Functions-as-a-Service (FaaS) hosted platform with Atlassian-operated compute and storage for app developers
  2. A flexible declarative UI language (Forge UI) that enables developers to build interactive user experiences across web and devices with just a few lines of code
  3. A state-of-the-art DevOps toolchain, powered by the intuitive Forge Command Line Interface (CLI).

Please carry your Laptop.

We have over 1600 members and we meet regularly to encourage better use of Atlassian tools among current or prospective users. Our events typically offer several talks, free food/drink and networking with 60-150 attendees.

Like an attendee at one of our events, you can expect to:

  • Share and learn Atlassian product knowledge, best practices, and case studies
  • Provide valuable user input to Atlassian so that they can keep making great products for us to use
  • Network and build a support system with fellow Atlassian product users.
