Say hello to JIRA Agile and JIRA Capture Learn More »
 9:00 am - Ahh, release day. You've run your test suite with each commit, and a green build has soaked on Staging for two days. Your application relies on a 3rd-party system to process credit card transactions - a critical dependency for your revenue stream. Your team didn't make any changes during soak time, but you don't know whether your credit card processing provider did. Worried? Nah, not you. You use multiple build triggers to run your tests with each commit, as well as nightly. So

Hello, In this post I'd like to highlight a few features in Bamboo related to... um... "re-running". So, what is rerunning and why do I find it interesting enough to write up a blog post for it? Let's consider a hypothetical situation, where you - The Developer - are supposed to implement yet another small&shiny feature in the application you're working on with your colleagues. At some point in time you create a feature-branch for your code, you start working on the feature and some time

Cloud purists, rejoice! Last month we were tickled pink to announce the Heroku Deploy plugin for Bamboo.  Today we're tickled once again because the plugin is now included in Bamboo OnDemand! Heroku + Bamboo is a powerful resource for teams using feature branches or a branch-per-JIRA-issue workflow.  Instead of  leaning on IT to create environments for testing all those branches before they are merged to master, you can lean on Heroku instead. Not to mention their new Java Enterprise offering:

Friends, do you have trouble finding the ketchup in your own refrigerator? Do you require Google Maps just to get to the corner store? Ever want to teleport from your seat at the game to that one beer stand across the stadium that sells your favorite craft brew? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, then you'll be as excited as we are about this weekend's Atlassian OnDemand release - full of goodies for the navigationally-challenged and busy user! Members of the OnDemand team have

So You Want to Run Tests in Parallel… now what??

Lemme start by saying two things to regular readers: 1) "Thanks for tuning in and dropping lots of thoughtful comments!" and 2) "You've probably noticed me getting all up in your area codes about fast feedback lately, what with the artifact sharing and inner/outer loops n' all." Yeah, it's been a bit of an obsession ever since the Agile2012 conference got me thinking about how important it is for agile teams in particular --partly because turbo-charged feedback is a natural work-in-progress

Announcing the Heroku Deploy Plugin for Bamboo!

You know what I love? Crawling into a bed made up with freshly-laundered sheets. Ahhh...! You know what I hate? Doing laundry and making my bed. Kind of a tricky spot to be in. A lot of people feel pretty much the same way about deploying software. I mean, how great is it to fire up your application on a shiny new environment that hasn't yet been polluted with hair-on-fire hacks, stray scripts or other development detrius? It's pretty great. But what a chore it can be to provision and prepare
