The tempered musings of a hipster coffee drinking engineer

Over Caffeinated At The Amsterdam Coffee Festival

Went to the Amsterdam Coffee Festival this Saturday, drank too much coffee and had heated discussions on brewing methods. Here’s a few photo’s I took.


The Venue



Calling all hipsters!



Starbucks?! Really?

Couple of random takeaways:

  • Free coffee!
  • The festival was smaller then I thought it’d be, hopefully some more exhibitors next year.
  • Good way to taste coffee from some of the lesser known roasters or those without a store.
  • The mix between industry and consumer struck me as strange. Who was this “festival” really for? I mean, who’s gonna buy a water purification unit or a roaster for their home? And do industry types really need a Starbucks stand?

Stocks Plugin For Confluence Now Available In The Atlassian Marketplace

My stocks plugin for Confluence is now available to the public on Atlassian Marketplace. This means it’s very easy to install from your own instance! for more details go to:

More about the plugin can be found in my previous post.

Create Your Own Watchlist With The Stocks Plugin For Atlassian Confluence

During one of the ShipIt days here at Atlassian I started on a plugin for Confluence to easily add stock quotes to your pages and have them update automatically. Didn’t quite finish the plugin during the 24 hours, but continued work in my own time and now the project is open sourced and can be found on BitBucket.


  1. Log into your Confluence instance as an admin.
  2. Click the admin dropdown and choose Add-ons. The Manage add-ons screen loads.
  3. Click Find new add-ons from the left-hand side of the page.
  4. Locate Stock Quotes for Confluence via search. Results include add-on versions compatible with your Confluence instance.
  5. Click Install to download and install your add-on.
  6. You’re all set! Click Close in the Installed and ready to go dialog.

How does it work?

Create a new page or edit an existing one and type a $ to start. A search dialog will open and get populated while you’re typing. You can either use the name of the company, e.g. Google, or the name of the symbol, for Google this is ‘GOOG’

Now just save the page and you’re done! Use them to create a watch list or just add them to a body of text.

  • Stock quotes will automatically update in a 60 second interval when the markets is open.
