Hi everyone! Thanks again for attending last week’s Central Texas Atlassian User Group (CTXAUG). We were thrilled to have 16 attendees for our second meeting – and hope to top 25 at our third! View the meeting slides here, which include Kenn North’s presentation about how his company leverages Confluence and Jira; view Nassim Massah’s presentation about Atlassian Build Pipelines here.

Also, Atlassian has asked user groups to migrate to Facebook for all AUG news / event scheduling. Beginning this week, we’ll stop updating our Meetup page and migrate to our new Facebook page. Please “Like” us to receive updates – and if you don’t use Facebook, please follow us on Twitter. You don’t need a Facebook account to RSVP for CTXAUG events on Facebook.

Hope to see you guys at our third meeting. Take care, Atlassians!

Atlassian Development: Chris Pepe Slays the Dragon

By Praecipio Consulting on Mar 1, 2011 11:00:00 AM

We’re excited to announce that our primary Atlassian guru, developer, ace, bad-a… Chris Pepe, has slain a dragon. A huge, fire-breathing, metaphorical dragon.

Chris completed Atlassian’s Here Be Dragons quest, in which developers from villages worldwide are challenged with the task of fully integrating a suite of Atlassian applications. And he did it without a sword.

Atlassian challenges its most skilled customers and evaluators to the task. Those who achieve victory as Chris connected issues, wikis, and source code to create an agile set of Atlassian tools for building software fast – that awesome, integrated experience we (and Atlassian) talk about.

Chris’ dragon slaying included:

  • Dragons Stage 1 – Install Java, PostgreSQL and Crowd
  • Dragons Stage 2 – Install Jira
  • Dragons Stage 3 – Install GreenHopper into Jira
  • Dragons Stage 4 – Install Confluence
  • Dragons Stage 5 – Install FishEye and Crucible
  • Dragons Stage 6 – Get Jira and FishEye talking
  • Dragons Stage 7 – Get Jira and Crucible talking
  • Dragons Stage 8 – Install Bamboo
  • Dragons Stage 9 – Bamboo gadgets and Jira victory

We’re excited to have Chris’ black belt Atlassian skills in our arsenal. You’ll have the chance to meet him when we host the first Central Texas Atlassian User Group (CTXAUG) later this month, as well as in our booth at SXSW 2011 Interactive Trade Show. But if you’re adopting an Atlassian tool in the meantime, talk to us now!
