Designing Add-ons – Matt Bond
topics:
-Design thinking
-Design tools

ADG 2.0

Design thinking
– creativity
– Something new and valuable
– could be software and plugins

Matt talks about changing and expanding Context and form.

ex.
Rubickscube
the context is your mind and body , the cube is the form but what about expanding the context into art or something bigger.

Define the problem
Study the context
augment the context.

He talks about design tools, as:
In-person Interviews.
AUI sandbox
-Great prototyping tool
– Halfway finished when you are done using it.

You always want to ask good questions in user Testing.
-basic question
-context based
-define the problem
-time sensitive. Don’t ask long questions.

Personas
Archetypes of users
-based on research
– interviews
– user testing

They are all on ADG, use them to make Archtypes of your users.

Make design wall to visualize all your problems and also you look extra smart if you use them :)

ADG 2 has lot of new cool stuff like help system, notifications, flat buttons and many more.

Introducing the Confluence Rest Api – Steve Lancashire.

the new API covers 30% of all possible data.

Features of the Rest API
-default JSON representation
-Hypermedia inside entities.
– Embed Ententies through Expansions
– Common Content model

Steve shows how the new API works to create, change and delete content on pages in Confluence.

He also shows how property is Created, change and Delete via Rest.

CQL – confluence Query language
-Query language for finding content
-Similar to Jql/ SQL where clause
-Only available via rest browser not User based.

Extensibility:
– functions,
– similar to JQL functions
– i.e. creator = currentUser()
fields
– plugins can add indexed fields to the JQL query.

Steve shows us demo of the new Query with a long query which is pretty awesome.
They plan on expanding the Index further this year.

Atlassian Connect State of the Union – Seb Rulz

Connect – how We integrate products in the atlassian universe

OnDemand is growing bigger than ever.,

How does Connect Work?
– Add-on rendered in Iframe
– Isolated CSS and Javascript
-security management
-using public Api’s to fill an Iframe.
– UI integration can look native

Rest APIs
– retrieve and render data within UI
– Increasing Surface area

Business logic
-not locked into Java
-Use your own Dev stack
– No compiling against Atlassian products.

Marketplace automatically updates and manages versioning.

One year ago with Connect:
– we barely had a platform

now:
-35 milestones since last atlasCamp
Atlassian Connect 1.1 coming in June

Brand new JSON descriptor and JWC authentication
Lots of new features.

33 public add-ons based on Connect and 4500 installations.

Where are we going:
-Focusing on the platform
– unlocking more security features
-Robustness
-Enterprise – i18n

JIRA and Confluence still a priority

Connect is currently for OnDemand only
Connect is future of Platform.
