In September, we kicked off Codegeist 2022, an annual Atlassian hackathon that brings together developers around the globe. This year over 3,000+ participants across 84 countries joined efforts to Forge the Future of Teamwork by building apps for Dev Ops, Business, and IT teams.
The challenge invited developers to build apps that transform teamwork using Forge — Atlassian's next generation app development platform. Forge makes it possible to build a fully-functional app in just a few hours with hosting, multiple development environments, and API authentication built-in.
Cross-Collaboration & Creativity
It has been inspiring seeing each of you create incredible apps on Forge and help one another on the Atlassian Developer Community. We are amazed by the cross-collaboration among individuals and teams and the creativity of your app submissions.
Thank you to all who participated – your submissions blew us away yet again. Join us in congratulating all of the Codegeist 2022 participants for their contribution to the Atlassian developer community.
🥁 Drum Roll, Please
The winners of Codegeist 2022 represent the best of the best across multiple categories, and we are thrilled to announce who took home this year's top prizes.

How to take the next step with your app?
Before listing your Forge app on the Marketplace:
- Test your app
- Prepare branding marketing materials
- Think through a plan for how you’ll support your customers and a pricing strategy
List your app
- Fill out the submission form for your app to be reviewed and published on the Marketplace.

What happens after you submit to be listed?
After you submit your app to be listed on the Marketplace, you should receive a confirmation email congratulating you on your new submission with a link to a ticket. We review apps on a first come, first serve basis and all updates will appear on your ticket so you are able to stay informed. There is also a queue tracker that will roughly let you know your position in line.
For more frequently asked questions on the process that takes place after you submit your app to the Marketplace, see our New Partner FAQ.
