Coming soon: Bamboo 5 Early Access Program!

We grown-ups don't anticipate Christmas morning like we used to. (Or do we...?) But that doesn't mean we don't get excited about new toys! You may have heard about the deployment awesomeness we're baking into Bamboo 5 at one of our Atlassian RoadTrip stops, at an AUG, or by word of mouth*. If so, you're probably keen to kick the tires on this thing. Well friends, Christmas is coming early this year. In early May we'll kick off the Bamboo 5 Early Access Program (ie, a beta). Milestone builds will

The Stash team recently released the Stash-Bamboo plugin, which surfaces pass/fail results from Bamboo builds inside Stash. The main use case for the plugin is to let people reviewing a pull request see whether tests are passing on the development branch before they give the thumbs-up for merging it into master. Pretty cool. So I asked Build engineering to install the plugin on the Bamboo instance we use to build and test Confluence. For now, Bamboo is configured to notify Stash only for "A1.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love TestNG

Think back to your early 20's. Remember going out on Halloween or New Year's Eve? No sooner do you walk into a bar than someone in your group starts lobbying to go to some other bar. 'Cuz it's gonna be way better. (In your exasperation - you just ordered a drink for pete's sake! -  you vow that next year you're gonna find a house party instead.) Apologies in advance, but... I'm gonna be "that someone". Replace New Year's Eve with every Monday through Friday. The bar you just walked into

It’s the Jenkins Importer for Bamboo – are you ready??

They say you never forget your first. And if you can look back with fondness, so much the better.  I certainly remember mine - his name was Jenkins. We had some great times together. Me and Jenkins and the rest of the team building every commit, automating tests... Ahh, memories. (What did you think I was talking about? Dirty bird...) Jenkins is great.
