Things are pretty hectic here on the developer advocacy team. We spent last week at Devoxx Belgium in Antwerp, and this week we'll be jetting around Europe and North America as part of the Getting Git Right tour. But, in the time I've had at my desk in Amsterdam, I've hacked together some cool workflows using Bamboo and Docker (more on that in a later blog post). This has meant getting some instances of Stash and Bamboo up and running, often repeatedly as I experimented with different techniques.

Not anymore at Trulia. "The days of managing work items with sticky notes and a bunch of fragmented tools are long gone," says Nate Van Dusen, Trulia's Engineering Program Management Director.

What they wanted was a tool that could provide visibility at every level of the organization. They wanted the ability to understand each project's status in detail, and an easy, reliable

A personal calendar is great for keeping track of your schedule—meetings, appointments, dinner plans. What a personal calendar is NOT great for is keeping track of what everyone on your team is doing. With each person's different projects, leave requests, and travel plans, keeping everyone on the same page is nearly impossible. Trying to juggle all these events is what usually leads to an "Oh Shit!" moment—when you suddenly realize you're going to miss a deadline, or a feature has to be pulled
