New reduced pricing tiers for Halp
Halp announced at the beginning of the month a change in their pricing.
Halp is a conversational ticketing system that connects with your communication tools like Slack and Microsoft teams and helps you raise tickets and track them through their lifecycle.It is loved by IT teams, HR, and Ops.
With a new pricing model more agents you add the cheaper the seats get. Also if you have a yearly subscription you'll now pay only for 10 months, getting 2 months free. And if you're by any chance an educational, non-profit, or open-source organization then you will get further discounts:
- 75% for educational organizations,
- 50% for non-profts,
- and 100% for open source.
Atlassian Bug Bounty Update - July 2021

The state of Forge report
In the early days of June, Jexo and Resolution held a Hackathon with an intention to explore Forge. You can read what we learned in "The state of Forge" report written by Tobias from resolution and Leo from Jexo.
We wrote this report for developers who are just starting out on their first app development project using Atlassian's new tool-set to understand what is possible in this space. Secondly, we wanted it to be more than that by reporting our findings back to the Atlassian Forge team so they can address some issues which came up during our exploration.
Make sure you also read the comments section where the Atlassian team clarified some of the points mentioned in the report.
