Introducing the Websphere Add-on for Bamboo

We are thrilled about the first deployments add-on for Bamboo 5! Made Mastika, a developer at GLiNTECH (an Atlassian Expert in Sydney), is here to tell you all about it. While Made likes to spend his free time away from development, a keen interest in things like Data Mining and JavaScript means he never gets away too far. When you’re a developer ‘out in the field’ and working with all kinds of different people, businesses and disparate systems, you often spot little opportunities outside

RebelLabs cooks up a continuous delivery pipeline with Bamboo

The mad-scientists-turned-provocateurs over at RebelLabs have released yet another stellar (and entertaining) report for software makers, Release Management for Enterprises.

Open Dojo #3 – Application monitoring (live from PuppetConf!)

It's that time again... another DevOps-themed hangout is a-brewin'. Just for fun, we'll be coming to you live from PuppetConf in San Francisco! Our topic for August is application monitoring.

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

Automated Deploys: How to Convince Your Boss

Ok, so we did chat about other topics related to deploy automation at the Open Dojo hangout last Thursday. But making the business case for investing in automation took center stage, with all four panelists weighing in (some of them more than once!). If you missed the live broadcast, you can check out the recording here or on YouTube. Fire it up and kick back with your lunch or some pretzels & beer! ps: Look for the next Open Dojo coming up in August. We'll be geeking out about infrastructure
