Archives for the tag: continuous delivery

In February, I had the pleasure of speaking with the London Atlassian User Group (AUG) about some of our experiences with continuous delivery and deployment at Atlassian. The slides for this are available online, but the talk generated a lot of discussion at the time and I'd like to recap some of it here. To give a bit of context, I work in the business platform team; we're responsible for developing the tools that allow the business to interact with the customer. In particular, we develop the

We all have the tendency to avoid things that are going to be difficult – whether physical, logistical, or otherwise. And we do this knowing full well that if we just faced the tough things head-on, it would result in a much lower degree of total difficulty in the long run. (For example, I once went three years without seeing a dentist, and was so afraid of what might be revealed that I continued to avoid it for another four years.) Ahhh, humans. Gotta love us. In the software world, the "dentist"

Branch-based deployments – new in Bamboo 5.2

Shipping a new feature always brings a mixture of emotions, no matter your role in getting it out the door.

The whole thing is like chipotle-spiced dark chocolate with PopRocks (this actually exists, and should be its own food group). So

Sharing artifacts between plans, and other best practices

We spend a lot of time on the Bamboo team thinking about how to make really excellent continuous integration (CI) as easy and accessible as possible. Today I'm delighted to share some progress we've made on that front, in two ways. Artifact sharing between plans Yes! You asked for it (Atlassians have been asking for it, too), and now it's here. For the benefit of Bamboo newbies (Bam-noobs?), let's back up and look at what's changed. Bamboo has always been able to pass build artifacts

RebelLabs cooks up a continuous delivery pipeline with Bamboo

The mad-scientists-turned-provocateurs over at RebelLabs have released yet another stellar (and entertaining) report for software makers, Release Management for Enterprises. I find this exciting enough to blog about for two reasons: First, their take on what DevOps means for both individuals and the larger organization, as well as how the two disciplines drifted apart in the first place, is spot on. It's not about $1M tools or forming a separate team (though I do like their idea of forming a
