In the realm of modern software, the discourse surrounding development methodologies is ceaselessly evolving. Below we're going to have a look at an insightful article by Richard Seroter, titled "The Modernisation Imperative: Shifting left is for suckers.

Recently there’s been a number of big changes to Atlassian Cloud products. A few, even became free or bundled with other price plans. Arguably, all are good products, some you may say are great in their space. As all of this has rolled out, they’ve sent out quite a few emails and one of the recent emails got me thinking about a tutorial I wrote a while back about how to manage DevOps work streams in the context of Agile sprints and Agile software, like Jira and Confluence. This made me want to write an update to this article and see how the idea has stood the test of time and different work environments as I've introduced it for other clients.
