Codegeist 2022 Hackathon Winners

Reading Time: 5 minutes

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.
