Anaxi launches feeds to help developers manage their notifications

Anaxi, the software development tool that helps developers get a better view of their projects in Jira and GitHub, is launching a small but nifty addition to its iOS and web apps today that allows developers to cut down on the steady stream of notifications and updates those services create. The company, which was founded by former Apple engineering manager and Docker EVP of product development Marc Verstaen and former CodinGame CEO John Lafleur, rightly argues that tools like GitHub and Jira w...

Atlassian is 'rewriting the playbook' in cloud software, and customers love it so much it could raise prices without anyone complaining, says analyst (TEAM)

After Atlassian reported blockbuster earnings last quarter, BTIG analyst Joel Fishbein says customers now see Atlassian's products as "must-haves." If Atlassian raised its prices by 7-15%, customers likely wouldn't complain that much because its software products are seen as essential for companies. The demand for products for software developers will only grow, Fishbein says, and Atlassian's acquisition of Opsgenie make a splash in the IT space as well. If Atlassian, the $25 billion Aussie ...

My friend David

Have you ever wondered how we make friends in life?And have you noticed most of your friends have something common with you whether its music, sports, sports teams, movies etc. But strangely I have a friend who probably had nothing common between us apart from our bald heads. But well  how common can that be? David Novick joined our team as a Scrum Master, and due to my past experiences with that particular creed of Agilists (not a Pugilist) and a whole lot of ignorance from me I never really ...

Another server security lapse at NASA exposed staff and project data

Two months ago, NASA quietly fixed a buggy internal server that was leaking sensitive information about the agency’s staff and their work. The leaking server was — ironically — a bug reporting server, running the popular Jira bug triaging and tracking software. In NASA’s case, the software wasn’t properly configured, allowing anyone to access the server without a password, Avinash Jain, an India-based security researcher who found the exposed server, told TechCrunch. According to Jain’s writeup,...

JIRA is an antipattern

Atlassian’s JIRA began life as a bug-tracking tool. Today, though, it has become an agile planning suite, “to plan, track, and release great software.” In many organizations it has become the primary map of software projects, the hub of all development, the infamous “source of truth.” It is a truism that the map is not the territory. Alas, this seems especially true of JIRA. Its genesis as a bug tracker, and its resulting use of “tickets” as its fundamental, defining unit, have made its maps esp...
