It’s the Jenkins Importer for Bamboo – are you ready??

They say you never forget your first. And if you can look back with fondness, so much the better.  I certainly remember mine - his name was Jenkins. We had some great times together. Me and Jenkins and the rest of the team building every commit, automating tests... Ahh, memories. (What did you think I was talking about? Dirty bird...) Jenkins is great. With its $0 price point, Jenkins has helped spread the gospel of continuous integration far n' wide. And CI is freeing us from the shackles

I love pull requests No, really: I love pull requests. But I’ve learned to be more than a little nervous when accepting them. If only I had a dollar for every time an innocent-looking pull request completely threw the spanner in the works, broke every build, and had my team Nerf-pelting me because of the test failures. I’d be a rich man who wouldn’t have to sling code for a living! http://vimeo.com/59534707 To avoid being subjected to guerrilla Nerf warfare, I need to check the build

Bring Code Quality to JIRA with FishEye and Crucible

I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

"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

Feel the Love with Bamboo 4.4!

It's not quite Valentine's Day, and already, l'amour is in l'air. If you're not feelin' it yet, this is the perfect time to check out Bamboo 4.4 - filled to the brim with customer-reported fixes and enhancements. It's our way of showing that we care. Minus the satin heart-bearing bear. Now don't laugh when you see what bubbled up on our backlog. The common thread tying this motley mélange of a release together is you: your votes, your requests. Here's a sample: Native support for TestNG

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
