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.
We have just released the public beta of a new add-on from the "little, useful and free helpers" category: The Expando Macro. The Expando Macro makes headings clickable and expands or collapses the content that belongs to that heading, and it expands content based on a macro parameter or on the linked HTML anchor.
Bamboo ist der Continuous Integration Server von Atlassian, wie er insbesondere in agilen Softwareentwicklungs-Projekten und für Software-Deployments eingesetzt wird. In dem Morning Talk gibt Christoffer Bromberg eine Einführung in Bamboo aus Benutzersicht.
Last week we had Information Developer and long term wiki-user Kelly McDaniel visiting us at our office in Stuttgart http://blog.k15t.com/2013/07/kelly-mcdaniel---pushing-back-the-frontier-of-wiki-based-documentation. Kelly was giving an inspiring talk about his story of migrating technical documentation from Adobe Framemaker to the Atlassian Confluence wiki. We have recorded Kelly's talk so everybody who was not able to join, can watch it online.
In this post you can learn how easy it is to create a user macro in Confluence that will show a Twitter-user's timeline. You're literally only a few clicks away from letting your colleagues know about your Tweets directly in your Confluence wiki.
We are looking forward to welcome technical writer and wiki-user Kelly M. McDaniel this week in our Stuttgart office at K15t Software. Kelly is a Senior Information Developer and long term user of the Atlassian Confluence wiki and the Scroll Add-ons https://marketplace.atlassian.com/vendors/7016 for Confluence. On Thursday, July 4th at 5:30pm he will give a talk at K15t Software about migrating documentation to Confluence and pushing back the frontiers of wiki-based documentation.
The K15t Software team will attend the AtlasCamp 2013 in Amsterdam. Most of the team will arrive Tuesday night and stay the whole week. We are looking forward to meet you there and discuss all things wiki-based documentation and more...
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.
Nine months after the release of Scroll Versions 1.0, we are proud to release a new major release - Scroll Versions 2.0. Managing multiple variants in a single space in Confluence 5 - Scroll Versions 2.0 makes it possible and brings you to the next step in managing your documentation collaboratively in Confluence. The new Scroll Versions 2.0 offers you the ability to handle multiple versions and multiple variants in the same space. Also, the Page Info Panel gives enhanced information and the overall usability got improved. Another great feature is the SEO enhancement, to improve the searchability of your documentation.
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!

Today we're happy to announce the availability of Scroll PDF Exporter 2.5. This release has some new features and a bunch of bugfixes.
To ensure the best quality of all your documentation, it is important to track the status of each page so only approved pages are published. This is essential for technical documentation.
Duplicate page titles have been a requested feature for Confluence for a long time, because people want to have multiple "Introduction" pages for different sections in their wiki space. However, it is not supported by Confluence. But, in Scroll Versions' we have added the permalink feature that allows multiple wiki pages with the same title in the same Confluence space. This article describes how to use duplicated page titles without using the other Scroll Versions functionality.
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.
Right in time for Tekom 2012 we've relaunched the K15t Software website for better usability, more appealing design and more content.
