More details

We want everybody to be able to run the best hackathon that they possibly can so we built Hackathon: the ultimate way to run your hackathon competitions.

Being involved in a hackathon is an incredibly fun experience and many innovative solutions are often the result. But being the person that has to organise the hackathon is often a hard task. This addon takes much of the difficulty out of running your own hackathon. Hackathon makes running a hackathon easy by:

  • Making every JIRA Issue of a certain type in a Project be considered a Hackathon Team.
  • Having tight integration with the Hackathon Workflow.
  • Having an inbuilt voting app (that works on Mobile too)
  • Including a leaderboard so that you can reveal the final results with a flourish.
  • Global hackathon support: so that you can run a cross-continent Hackathon.
  • Performance: we can handle high load and scale.

This is the add-on that Atlassian uses to run ShipIt! Run your hackathon with it today!

There is a server version: The ShipIt Voting Plugin. But it has less features and I have not updated it to support JIRA 7 and I don't know if I will have the time to do so.

As a result I would highly recommend giving this one a try and start up a JIRA Cloud instance.
