Day of Jenkins
An interactive Jenkins showcase
The conference calendar for software developers in Gothenburg is quite frankly, a little sparse. So I was delighted when Praqma decided to hold one of their hands-on “Day of…” events here. This time it was Continuous Integration, and Jenkins in particular, on the agenda.
/images/doj-gbg_past2.jpg An interactive showcase Christopher Orr kicked off the day with a great keynote. Then, all attendees took out their laptops for 4 intense hands-on workshops. To conclude the day, everyone got the chance to ask questions to th 5 speakers and got advice to address their own challenges. When asked about their main takeaways, the attendees mentioned: “Jenkins is very much alive!” “Learned a lot about how to ‘codify’ my Jenkins installation, and how to properly use Shared libraries.” “Best practices of Remote things” “Pipeline and Blue Ocean is the way to go and I feel better equipped to do so.” https://www.flickr.com/photos/code-conf/albums/72157684772479855 Photos http://www.praqma.com/stories/day-of-jenkins-gbg/ Blogpost & slides
The latest and greatest in the world of Jenkins
Freelance software developer & contributor to the Jenkins open-source project
2016 was a huge year for the Jenkins project and its users, and 2017 has been no different! Join me as we take a look at recent highlights in the world of Jenkins, some of the exciting and powerful new features available now, what’s happening in the Jenkins community, how you can get involved, and what the future holds.
Doing Jenkins as CoDe using Docker, Groovy, JobDSL and Pipeline
Founder and Senior Consultant at A59 IT Consulting AB
During this workshop, you will learn how to create a reproducible instance of Jenkins using Docker, Groovy, JobDSL, and Pipeline. We will cover not only jobs but also Jenkins global, security, and slaves configuration. Moreover, we will not only script Jenkins configuration but also make it rebuild and redeploy itself.
Let's build a pipeline, declarative style!
Software Engineer, CloudBees
Since Jenkins 2.0 put the Jenkins Pipeline feature front and center we got a lot of good user feedback, one of the most mentioned was that pipelines had a high level of entry and were hard to get right for novice users. So on February 3rd we released the declarative pipeline syntax, made to give easy configuration as code with syntax checking, docker integration, conditional actions and foundations in place for a visual editor integrated in the new Blue Ocean UI. Let’s make a pipeline together in the declarative style and see how it works.
Dark side of Jenkins - Dealing with agent connectivity issues
Jenkins Core maintainer, Principal Engineer at CloudBees
Almost all agent types in Jenkins use the Remoting library to communicate with the master, including JNLP and SSH agents. Although Jenkins’ ability to run tasks on multiple hosts is one of its success factors, agent connection stability is known to be a major pain point in large-scale installations. In this workshop, Oleg will talk about remoting internals, how to diagnose issues, how to configure Jenkins and underlying infrastructure, and the future of this layer in Jenkins.
Deep dive into Jenkins Pipeline Shared Libraries
Open-source Consultant at Inuits
When scaling Jenkins Pipeline scripts across multiple repositories, folders and teams, Shared Libraries are very welcome. They allow you to not repeat yourself (DRY), centralize your steps/workflows in a common repository and use advanced groovy scripts to interact with Jenkins.
This workshop will teach you how to use the Shared Libraries, either globally or at folder level, to allow you to share and scale your Pipeline jobs.
Facilitating the Q&A session
Technical Agile Coach at Praqma
Emily will facilitate the discussions between the speakers and welcome the questions from the audience. This will be the time to ask the Jenkins maintainers about any of their tricks, and pipeline pitfalls or problems that you encounter.
