When we switched to the remote-first working mode, the biggest thing we started missing was the opportunity to share and discuss our ideas working with whiteboards and stickers on our walls. Our Whiteboards app for Jira and Confluence was born as a part of the Atlassian Codegeist Hackathon to solve this inconvenience.
Now, it is time to ask the community to bring their ideas into our solution, so we can make it better for teams who use Jira or Confluence around the world.
We ask the hackers to create a template to help teams to:
run their Agile ceremonies and events remotely;
make better decisions more simply;
enable creative thinking;
find solutions to business challenges;
organize and structure information;
share and discuss their ideas;
present information in a more convenient way;
create ice-breakers for distributed teams;
collaborate online for any other reasons.
Chosen templates might be included in our apps in the future so that all users can benefit from them.
Authors are allowed to add a card with information about the creators with a link to their LinkedIn profile (to personal profiles only) in their templates.
The hackathon doesn’t require any coding or professional designing skills. The only thing you need is to be a Jira or Confluence user and install our app (they go with a 30-day free trial, so you don’t need to pay anything).
Individuals who are at least the age of majority where they reside as of the time of entry
Organizations (including corporations, not-for-profit corporations and other nonprofit organizations, limited liability companies, partnerships, and other legal entities)
To receive cash prizes, winners have to be able to issue an invoice to Spartez Software sp. z o.o. sp. k.
Create a template using our apps to address challenges that Jira or Confluence users might be facing while collaborate remotely. You can check the topics' examples in the description of this hackathon.
Create a template and then present it by publishing a project with a description of your solution, a video demonstration of how it works, and a link to download this template.
