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

The Tool is the Easy Part - What about the Processes? The FishEye team was the first team at Atlassian to make the switch to DVCS, and while some Atlassians had previous DVCS experience, quite a few had not yet used it in the workplace with a medium-size team of developers before. We looked for help around the web, but there wasn't a lot of people sharing their experiences at the time. We found many resources like "How do I push a branch in Git?" or "How do I pull from multiple remotes in Mercurial?",

Case Study: Why did SAFMT Go JIRA?

Nonprofit organizations aim to put as much of every dollar possible into their beneficiaries. Implementing JIRA has enabled the Student Assistance Foundation to do better development work with less staff, making developers happy and, more importantly, saving operational costs to benefit students. Ultimately, the fact that JIRA allows SAF to work smarter means more Montana foster care youths get laptops and the supplies they need to pursue their dreams of higher education.
