When you think of an API, you probably don't picture a bunch of drawings on a whiteboard. But exactly one year ago, our plans for HipChat Connect were just that. In a year this idea evolved through several stages, and finally made it to public GA with over 30 partners. We've learned a lot about shipping and partnership in the process, and we hope what we've learned will be helpful to other software development teams (like yours, maybe).

At AtlasCamp 2015 we announced we were working on Atlassian Connect for HipChat. During a recent hackathon week in San Francisco we gave early access to 25 developers from awesome companies - including New Relic, PagerDuty,, Tempo, Wittified, Meekan, Notify, and Zendesk - and the result was quite impressive!
