We like to ship big things, but sometimes great things come out of tiny features. That's how I feel about the review navigation shortcuts – with only 2 keys you can jump through all the files, diffs and comments of your changesets and reviews. Choosing the content to navigate In FishEye, the j and k shortcuts automatically cycle through diffs and files; in Crucible reviews, you can fine tune your navigation using the drop down menu next to Prefs to control what items are cycled:   Moving

Meet FishEye and Crucible 3.0, a massive upgrade to our code search, visualization and review tools that will help development teams work faster, every day. This release provides developers with more powerful ways to track changes across all their code repositories, share knowledge, and accelerate collaboration cycles. Developers will find it easier to perform pre-commit reviews and benefit from huge indexing performance gains – especially for Subversion repositories. Come and meet the new FishEye

Sometimes it doesn't hurt to talk again about things we covered in the past. I must admit that before writing this post I was wondering whether or not people would find value in it as the Commit Graph isn't really a brand new feature. But a couple discussions with some folks in Atlassian convinced me that not everyone knew all the great things that you could achieve with it. Taking this in account and thinking about all the new developers adopting our tools everyday I decided to write something

"I remember when our team was just two developers...". Have you made a statement like that recently? At Atlassian our development team grew from 2 guys to now over 300 developers working in different timezones. Collaborating on the code became more complex as the team was growing but the goal always stayed the same: improve dev speed and ship high quality code. To achieve this we needed to find the right processes, tools and workflows. In our case we just built some of it ourselves. FishEye and

There's a new report out from our pals at ZeroTurnaround's Rebel Labs covering the value of continuous integration, commonly used tools & technologies (Atlassian's own Bamboo gets a nice shout-out), and how CI works in a team setting. Whether you're an agilist getting your team started with CI, or automated testing enthusiast looking to scale up and trick out your system, you'll want to read this. Or you could just read it for the StarCraft references http://vimeo.com/57681312 Get the

The fact that you're reading this is highly suspicious. Wouldn't you rather be coding right now? Are you really a developer, or are you some alien life form in an over-worn "There's no place like 127.0.0.1" t-shirt masquerading as a coder? See, we've been made to understand that, more than anything, devs just want to get back to coding. We also understand how hard it can be to keep a growing dev team flowing smoothly as new members join and new features are coded. Teams need a common interface
