Say hello to JIRA Agile and JIRA Capture Learn More »
In February, I had the pleasure of speaking with the London Atlassian User Group (AUG) about some of our experiences with continuous delivery and deployment at Atlassian. The slides for this are available online, but the talk generated a lot of discussion at the time and I'd like to recap some of it here. To give a bit of context, I work in the business platform team; we're responsible for developing the tools that allow the business to interact with the customer. In particular, we develop the

FishEye/Crucible 3.4: Fullscreen mode, Stash integration

I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

Software development is a fast-moving industry and we can see today that a lot of companies are doing a transition from traditional VCS like Subversion to Git.

With FishEye/Crucible 3.4, we improved the integration with that platform as well as the Git indexing performance to help people who have mixed environments. But that's not all! We implemented a stalking header to focus on the content

Not so long ago I was lucky enough to speak at our Getting Git Right tour about our migration from Subversion to Git here at Atlassian. I loved sharing our experience, and I had great questions from the crowd. It also confirmed my belief that many people need some time to make the transition from traditional SCMs to DVCS. There are many development teams still on Subversion, and the FishEye/Crucible team is on a mission to support them and provide great tools to help them develop better. So this

The Spock Framework is one of the best unit testing frameworks compatible with JUnit. It's based on the Groovy language and it takes its capabilities to an upper level (thanks to huge AST transformations performed during compilation). You can write beautiful yet powerful tests, including but not limited to: data series, mocking, behavior testing, and detailed reporting about failed assertions. I believe that the Atlassian Clover 3.3 is the best code coverage tool for Spock-based tests. Let me
