Announcing new Developer Success Stories!

Hello developer community! :wave:

Today we’re excited to announce the launch of our Developer Success Stories program. These stories highlight and celebrate the achievements of your fellow developers, share their awesome advice, and give you the chance to connect with someone new.


To kick off our first round of stories, we interviewed Amaresh Ray, Emre Toptancı, and Oliver Siebenmarck. We were impressed by their achievements, and if you don’t already know them, we’d highly encourage you to add them to your network.

From transitioning their apps from Server to Cloud, Connect to Forge, or even taking the leap from corporate job to business owner – these developers bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and inspiration that anyone can learn from. Beyond their achievements as Atlassian Marketplace Partners, you’ll get to learn more about who they are as humans, and the journey that brought them here today. Get a sneak peek of each developer’s story below, and drop your favorite high five GIF in the comments of this post to celebrate their greatness and give them some kudos. :confetti_ball:
