Have you enabled the improved interface on Jira cloud?

Submitted by ravisagar on Mon, 03/09/2020 - 20:12

I logged into one of my Jira Cloud instance to realise that I can enable the new interface which looks like Jira Server version. It was actually the case for many years but couple of years Atlassian changed the interface with sidebars on the left. People complained a lot and they didn't like the new interface. Especially those who were using Jira for years.

I think Atlassian listened to the feedback and took this really seriously and decided to bring back the old interface. It is not exactly the same but you won't miss Jira Server now.

Achieved - Certified SAFe 4 Agilist

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 03/07/2020 - 18:38

Recently I achieved the SAFe 4 Agilist certification after attending 2 days of training. The course is really good, I enjoyed those 2 days where we learned formally about various phases in SAFe implementation. I did work on some aspects of SAFe previously but I never did a formal training and that's why I was able to relate to things I did before. After those 2 days of training I did few days of preparation for the exam. The certification is achieve after clearing the exam which is I would say not the easy one.

Submitted by ravisagar on Sat, 11/10/2018 - 21:36

Yes you read it correctly I am actually redoing my engineering again almost after 20 years. I am not really enrolling myself in a course or going back to university but I am actually relearning the things that I learned long long back again.

I made a video explain what are my plans. You can watch that video if you want but I am anyways sharing my plan in this blog.

I will present my experience in implementing two solutions to integrate a live chat support within JIRA Servce Desk.

When you have products and services used by thousands of customers, you need a system in place to streamline the support process. For many users, they prefer to engage with you via live chat support. It’s direct and quick, giving them instant gratification for finding a solution to their problem. For those using Jira Service Desk as their ITSM solution, there hasn’t been a Jira live chat support solution contained within the Atlassian ecosystem – until now.

Moving to Drupal VM by @geerlingguy

Submitted by ravisagar on Thu, 05/10/2018 - 08:04

I have been using Vagrant for a very long time now. I love it. It is perfectly to setup the environment and develop for Drupal, however recently I tried moving some of my sites to Drupal 8. I know I am late, very, very late but better late than never :) and I realised setting up the environment manually is a bigger pain, to be honest I am never comfortable setting up LAMP, I don't think I have ever configured Apache perfectly in one go. It always needs some R&D to make it work with Drupal or may be I am not good in it. I don't know. It is a pain.
