I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

Everyone needs to ask questions and get answers at work to get their jobs done, but it can be difficult to get the answers you need. Imagine if it was as easy as Googling the minds of your co-workers. On Wednesday, we hosted a live webinar to show you how we share knowledge through questions and answers here at Atlassian using Confluence Questions. We heard from Jeremy Largman, Atlassian's "knowledge guru" and the founder of Atlassian Answers, and me, John Wetenhall, product marketing lead for

JIRA 6.2: The reviews are in!

In February, we released JIRA 6.2 and Atlassian Git Essentials. JIRA 6.2 comes with a host of new features, including all-new integrations with Stash and Bamboo. Now, developers can easily create a pull request straight from JIRA. It doesn't stop there. We also created a new development panel to so test engineers can see build and deployment statuses from inside a JIRA issue.  Oh, and redesigned statuses with a new universal three-phase status indicator.

I'm making an assumption that this JIRA instance is solely for working

March Question of the Month

I'm speaking at RoadTrip 2014 Learn More »

Every time a new person starts at Atlassian, they're assigned a buddy. This buddy is usually an Atlassian veteran, who is there to help the new hire settle in and feel comfortable during their first couple weeks at the company. They answer questions, introduce them to other Atlassians, and even get to treat the newcomer to a welcome lunch on the company dime! Our Talent department makes the buddy system really easy by posting tips and guidelines on Confluence for everyone to reference. For the

Have more date nights with Bamboo & JIRA

My list of favorite new things at Atlassian since returning from 3 months leave is as follows: my adjustable-height desk, HipChat video, and (to the surprise of exactly no-one) Bamboo's ever-more-streamlined deployment flow. Having accurate information about what's been deployed, what's about to be deployed, and what state a rollback would leave you in can be the difference between happy teams and teams that cancelled their dinner plans Friday night because they were stuck at the office (*ahem*).
