At bitHound, we are passionate supporters and drivers of understanding your code and building great software. Great software is about the ability to make decisions freely, gain insight into the impact of those decisions made and deliver in a timely and secure fashion.
This has been one of our core beliefs since bitHound’s inception and remains in the forefront with each new feature and announcement, including our recent integration with Atlassian Connect for Bitbucket.
The Tenets of Great Software
Our drive and commitment to building great software stems from two major tenets. The first, is about keeping developers in the driver’s seat. At bitHound, we believe you that you, and only you, decide what you want to build, who you want to build it with and how you want to build it. The second is all about ensuring that developers are given the proper insight into what they are building before they move to production.
From leveraging third-party packages, to managing tech debt, to making sure you hit your deadlines– you have a lot on the go. We want to make sure that you are given full visibility into the quality, security and maintainability of your code so you can make informed decisions before you ship.
Why Atlassian Connect for Bitbucket?
As mentioned above, bitHound is dedicated to giving you the insights you need to make informed decisions without taking you out of your workflow. Nowadays, shipping great software involves constant context switching and it can be very frustrating to go to 10 different places in order to aggregate the information you need to get the job done.
As such, it seemed only natural to take two great services and make them work as one. Our integration with Bitbucket means you and your collaborators can get the same valuable insights right in your Bitbucket repository without having to leave!
