We had a wonderful time at the Atlassian Summit 2014 in San Jose. It was the largest Atlassian event ever held – and it exceeded all our expectations. The summit united Atlassian customers, experts and add-on developers for Confluence, JIRA and other Atlassian products from all over the world. In this blog post, we explain why we’re giving the Atlassian Summit 2014 a five-star rating.
We invite you to come to the K15t Software office on July 24th, 2014. Get a free introduction to Git and its toolchain integration and have a nice evening with us.

Since K15t Software was founded, a lot of talented individuals joined our team. Soon the initial office space became too small and we had to move into a new office. Last week we did it again - the new office is only a few steps away from the last one, but it's a giant leap forward for the K15t Software team.

As we love to celebrate with friends, partners, and our adored customers, we invited a bunch of people to join our Scroll Versions 2.0 release party. As is right and proper, we had beer and pretzels and a couple of short talks about K15t Software and the latest add-ons for Confluence.
Die neue Seitenleiste ist die wohl augenfälligste Neuerung in Confluence 5. Sie ersetzt das alte Standard-Design (Theme). Mit der neuen Seitenleiste wird Confluence 5 „out-of-the-box“ deutlich besser navigierbar und sie ermöglicht einen verbesserten Überblick über die wichtigsten Inhalte eines Bereichs.
Confluence 5 kommt mit jeder Menge neuer Features und einem neuen Design. Dass es sich bei der Versionsnummer 5 nicht nur um einen Marketing-Griff handelt, stellt Atlassian ziemlich beeindruckend unter Beweis. Mit seinen Anpassungen und neuen Features fühlt es sich tatsächlich an, wie ein neues Produkt. Dazu gehören: neues Design globale Navigation neue Seitenleiste und Anpassungen im Editor um nur einige der größten Neuerungen zu nennen. Doch sehen Sie selbst:
In part 1 of this mini-series, I introduced the concept of using manually triggered Stages in Bamboo to set up a Plan that evolves as more and more of your build, test, and deploy processes become automated. When putting it into practice, there are some nuances to keep in mind, and "gotchas" to avoid. In part 2, I will cover these in some depth so you can look like the continuous delivery rock star you are!
This is a guest blog post by Sarah Goff-Dupont. Sarah is an agile delivery evangelist with Atlassian, a former test automation engineer, and...
We spent the last couple of days at the tcworld conference in Wiesbaden, Germany. The tcworld conference is the most important technical communicators' conference in Europe. With a lot of english speaking tracks it is an internationally well recognized event.

If you have not considered Confluence for technical writing before, now is the right time to have a look: We are proud to announce the release of our latest Confluence add-on Scroll Versions.
Wikis are a great tool for technical documentation. Structuring and authoring the content in a collaborative way is as easy as it can be. A bigger challenge is keeping track of the whole documentation process. Especially when working in bigger teams it is important to know what has already been done and what still needs to be done. Labels are a great mechanism to retain control over all your pages.
Although all of our exporters were already working with Confluence 4.1 we haven't marked them as compatible. The reason for this decision is simple - Image Effect Support
Atlassian Team Calendars for Confluence and Jira have evolved rapidly over the last few months. Coming from release 1.0 to 1.8 in 8 months is quite a fast pace. Let's take a closer look at this really helpful plugin and how it can be used to improve your daily business.
