Working with you to beat password re-use

The Atlassian Security team is dedicated to protecting our customers' data. We think a lot about the impact of potential cyber intrusions and know that the way we shield customers against attacks impacts their data, privacy, content, source code, and reputation with their customers.

We know we aren't the only ones with cool hacks and innovative ideas, so this year we decided to hold a ShipIt competition at AtlasCamp to show off the insane talent of our ecosystem vendors that build add-ons to extend the capabilities of Atlassian products. This year's ShipIt Live! included add-ons from TopDox, Whispir, Adaptavist, RefinedWiki, Lateral.io, TestFairy, and one Atlassian team (we couldn't help it!) Here are the great add-ons they came up with:

This is the second guest post in a blog series from DevOps Manager Michael Kren about how he started a culture of DevOps at JAMF Software, how he built his team and the tools he used. His entire DevOps journey is collected in an ebook, which is available for download.

Three new features released in Bitbucket 4.8 provide teams with Git best practices and make collaboration easier. Whether you're the reviewer of a pull request or need to assign a reviewer, the two new pull request features make code reviews easier for quick turnaround times and better quality code. And zero downtime backup provides an active recovery mode so work is not put on hold and collaboration doesn't need to come to a halt when you're dependent on clients or team members in different timezones. Through these features teams can make sure teammates stay close to (working) code to produce higher code quality.

It's not quite what I had in mind when growing up, but right now my role title tells me I am a team lead. In the course of my time in this role, I've learned that being a team lead is something my fellow developers are interested in doing someday, so I want to share about my experience. This is what I've learned in discovering what it means to be a team lead.
