Bamboo CircleCI comparison

Here’s how to set up a project with CircleCI:

Why is this so easy?

Our inference engine automatically determines what environment you need by looking at your code and any frameworks you’re using. If you’ve (roughly) followed best practices in your project, then CircleCI will simply work out-of-the-box.

CircleCI also integrates seamlessly with the rest of Atlassian’s stack, which means you won’t lose your current Bitbucket – HipChat – JIRA workflow.
