This blogpost is meant for you to decide when to choose for a hosted Atlassian suite or when to choose the OnDemand feature Atlassian offers.
This is the next post in our series about the interns that currently work at Avisi. This time we introduce Mats Stijlaart. The Atlassian plugin framework is used on several projects to enable seamless extensions. Mats’s assignment is all about finding an alternative for, or confirm the choice of, the Atlassian plugin framework.
Atlassian is aligning its licensing scheme for Confluence with the one for Jira. Jira Enterprise was introduced February 2012, adding support for large enterprises to the standard Jira offering. Now Confluence is also available in an enterprise license, adding 24×7 personalized support and more to Confluence. This new offering will change the pricing of Confluence drastically. So now is the time to upgrade your Confluence license to have another year of support and updates for legacy prices!
The software business is certainly a complex one. No two companies do exactly the same thing, work the same way or use the same technologies or methods.
Therefore, it can be difficult to explain what we do here at Avisi, let alone how we do it and what differentiates us… That’s why we needed to find a way to give people a clear impression of who we are, what we do and how – without writing a novel about it. So we set out to create a couple of short animations that we hoped would do just that…
Last april we held our very first breakfast meetup. It was a thorough introduction to Atlassian, Jira and Confluence during a tasty breakfast. Attendees were enthusiastic, apparently learned something and we all had a very interesting discussion afterwards.
So we decided to repeat the experience!
On may 1st 2012, Atlassian released a new product called Stash. Stash is a Git repository manager. People that know Atlassian would say “Hey, isn’t it the same as FishEye?”. Well no, it’s not the same. FishEye is for looking at ALL of your source code, in any source repository. Stash is a repository manager for Git only. So how is it different then?
The current approach of in-VM plugins incurs a very high cost in development, QA, and support time. This is due to tight coupling and increased security and stability risks.
The Atlassian Remote Apps project aims to bring the benefit of third-party extensibility to OnDemand by dramatically lowering the costs and risks related to third-party code.
We investigated the possibilities to setup a remote app for enabling Numbered Headings for OnDemand. Here are our findings…
