One of the great advantages of working at Atlassian is that we're building the tools that we ourselves use to get our job done. With time to work on personal projects (through 20% time and ShipIt days), we are not only given the opportunity to come up with our own ideas for improving our tools, we actually get time to implement them. This is how the Branch View Plugin for Bamboo came to be: I wanted an easier way to monitor the builds that are running on my feature branches. The birth of "The

This is the forth in our five-part series from guest blogger J. Paul Reed—build engineer, automation enthusiast, and host of The Ship Show podcast. Any discussion on the transition toward continuous delivery of your software would be incomplete if it neglected the cultural aspects of such a deep change. In many conversations about the larger concept of DevOps (which CD is often a part of), much time is spent bandying about the question of tools versus culture: how each are relevant, where

New webinar! Super-powered CI with Git

You've always known that continuous integration (CI) is a critical part of working as a team and shipping great software. Thanks to a dark-arts blend of JUnit, TestNG, and Selenium, you’ve built a deflector shield that keeps bugs at bay. And then it happened: Your team decided to switch to Git. CI was challenging enough when you just had trunk and a release branch. Now with the sudden explosion of active branches, things can feel downright chaotic. But never fear. Continuous integration with Git

Software development is moving towards continuity. The recent emphasis on continuous integration, built-in testing, constant monitoring, and feedback telemetry all point toward an overall trend in the software industry: increasing the ability to react. To become real-time businesses. As organizations explore what these changes mean for them,
