Great free service

// Sales Manager at Worldpac Inc

What do you like about Bitbucket?

Good opportunities for monitoring rights and administration. There is the possibility of integration with many services to facilitate the development process. Bitbucket is made for large and professional development teams. Bitbucket also supports small teams and startups.

What do you dislike about Bitbucket?

No small price if you have a large development team, but if you are a beginner startup there is a free version of up to five people.

A fantastic management tool

// Lead Developer at vrTech Trade

What do you like about Bitbucket?

I really like Bitbucket. It allows to import project from other sources: Git, Mercurial, Subversion, SourceForge and CodePlex, for me it is just enough. In my experience, Bitbucket has shown as very stable. In more than few years of regular usage, with more than thousands people contributing on an immense code base, I have only experienced one unscheduled outage as a user, lasting less than 1 hour. Bitbucket integrates well with JIRA (from Atlassian too). It is possible to create a new branch directly from a JIRA issue. This allows the people who subsequently access the JIRA issue to find the code. It also integrates with HipChat. Pull requests can trigger notifications in HipChat rooms.

What do you dislike about Bitbucket?

Web UI could be improved, some tasks like see all branches or search on code could be a huge pain. It would be nice to have functionality that looks for certain files changed or folders in pull requests to add reviewers. At rest, it has been really easy to work with it.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Bitbucket solve?

Bitbucket gives us a front-end that helps a lot the collaboration between developers on a common code base.

Excellent Version Control System for Business

// Network & Server Engineer at Rubico IT Pvt Ltd

What do you like about Bitbucket?

Not only is this solution to version control cheap, but it is excellent. This system can be based off of git or mercurial which is a huge plus to developers who are used to either of those systems. The price is either cheap or free depending on how you use the system which is a huge selling point for businesses like ours. It also has features such as an API that you can integrate into your projects.

What do you dislike about Bitbucket?

The only dislike is that the GUI client that is available for download is a bit confusing. If you aren't familiar with git based systems and using CLI then this can be quite confusing.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Bitbucket solve?

We are using Bitbucket as a means of version control. We have realized that Bitbucket has much better features compared to other free systems such as Subversion.

The most stable solution

// System Integrator / DevOps at vrTech Trade

What do you like about Bitbucket?

All you need from the version control system and build. I love omnibar in Bitbucket, it's a quick accessline to actions. What's strange is that many users do not even know about it. I also like a lot of hotkeys, you should spend time and learn them. In addition, I often use snippets in Bitbucket to share code, but with their help, you can share other types of files. There is a free fare with private repositories. In terms of functionality, it is ahead of its competitors. Over the long years of use, the service has never fallen; it is really the most stable among competitors.

What do you dislike about Bitbucket?

During the evolution of UX, some unpopular actions, designed for experienced users, were hidden in drop-down lists or behind hotkeys.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Bitbucket solve?

We've improved our performance by tying branches, commits and pool-requests to Jira's tasks. Even at a free version, there are private repositories. There are some freezes, but Bitbucket is the most stable service that I have ever used.

Bitbucket is amazing

// Sales Marketing Manager at Red Bull Distribution Company

What do you like about Bitbucket?

Easy integration with Source Tree. Easy to understand interface. Provide clean UI for Git source control. Allow for public and private repositories. Pull requests and code reviews are easy to do with Bitbucket. It is very easy to use to review changes in a code. It's been working out great.

What do you dislike about Bitbucket?

Less integration with software outside of Atlassian suite. Missing two factor authentication. Sometime the search functionality has failed me. But it is a small part of the time I really do not have a con about this product. I heavily use it every day.

What have you been using it for and what problems did Bitbucket solve?

Bitbucket is currently being used as our primary source control tool across development and data teams. We host all of our code, data operations scripts, SSIS projects, etc., in Bitbucket repositories. Make my life easy as the DevOps Managers.
