We're thrilled to announce Snippets, available now in Bitbucket, where you can create and manage multi-file snippets of all kinds. We took a different approach than standard pastebin or gist and we built Snippets around teams. Snippets can be shared with your team, made private to you, or fully public; you control read and write privileges. If you create a snippet owned by your team, the snippet will stay with the team forever, even after you leave that team.

Who loves feedback? I can you tell that we do. We love it so much that we've created a team dedicated to seeking, synthesizing, and taking action on feedback from our customers. We call it the 'Voice of the Customer' team – i.e., the Voice of You. Recently, we've been sending emails and adding feedback prompts in our products with a single question: "On a scale from 1 to 10, how likely are you to recommend the product to a colleague?" And we use your answers to calculate our Net Promoter Score (NPS).

So we thought it would be fun to look back at what we achieved together in 2014. Thank you for making 2014 our best year yet and here’s to making 2015 even better.

Let's get the punch-line out of the way up-front: "Without being asked". In a move that genuinely surprised me, the team behind the Atlassian ordering system adopted peer code reviews in a purely organic manner. I've been thinking about why this is... But don't developers hate code reviews? Code reviews have a long and chequered history in software development. I'm not exactly a grey-beard, more sort-of "salt-and-pepper unshaven", but I'm old enough to have been part of a waterfall software

5 tips for great code reviews

In almost every organization, team members collaborate to get work done. Software teams typically transition issues between people for different functions like code development, code review, and testing (even if they are all on the same team). When transitioning an issue from one team member to another it’s important to minimize the amount of ramp up required for the receiver to fully understand the issue. Transferring issues can be extremely expensive as it requires time from not only one,

If you read my blogs often, you know how excited I am about Docker. And about Git. So you can imagine my excitement over our announcement today: Docker Automated Builds are now integrated with Bitbucket! What is Docker? Simply put, Docker is the next big thing in provisioning and deployment automation. With Docker, you can define everything needed to run applications--including the OS, database, environment variables, and start/stop scripts--and save it in a text file so that image can be
