I'm a new'ish Atlassian and this was my first AtlasCamp, but it felt like I've been to all four. This is a testament to how awesome the Atlassian community is. The Atlassian developer community is one of the warmest and friendliest developer communities I've come to know recently -- and I'm not just saying that just because I am an Atlassian.
This year's AtlasCamp came with lots of new announcements and great enhancements to products and tools. Here's a summary:
- A new release of the Atlassian SDK greatly improves developer productivity allowing developers to easily manage plugin modules and improve the developer feedback loop through the new FastDev feature
- New plugin points inside Confluence 4 allowing devs to create plugins that tap into the new awesome editor
- JIRA 5.0's focus on stable APIs and a new REST API with full CRUD capabilities for issues
- ... and plenty of tips and techniques unravelled
