6 steps toward stress-free releases with JIRA & Bamboo

If you've been around agile development long enough, you've heard time and again that doing agile 'right' means making releases a non-event. Sounds great, but how does one get to this magical place? Ever a fan of lists, I put together the top six ways to avoid an ulcer at release time using the combined powers of JIRA and Bamboo. If you're on a team that already maintains steady blood pressure and a resting heart rate of less than 60 bpm in the days leading up to a release, congratulations! Enjoy

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.

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. We'll discuss why it's a good engineering practice and trade war stories about how it saved our SaaS, of course. But we'll also dig in deeper and talk about how monitoring can be used as a tool (in the figurative sense) for bridging the gap between dev and ops. As always, no slide decks or sales pitches

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
