I had the idea for this application when I wanted to hold a bookclub for developers that allows them to level up their skill in parallel to the work that they get assigned by the project manager.
What it does
It pulls a number of random developer focused (and soft skills focused books) from google books api that a developer on a jira project can then add as a task for themselves to read for the month.
How I built it
I built it using Forge and the issue panel, google books api and node.js, using forge ui for the components.
Challenges I ran into
Creating issues with jira v3 api was a bit of an issue and the limited documentation of forge due to it's beta status made creating the application difficult.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
The application works and creates a jira issue that a developer can then use to track the books that they can read for the month.
What I learned
I have learned how to use forge to create simple Jira applications
What's next for Developer Bookclub
More books, more detailed tasks, adding comments and having discussions around the books teammates are reading
