This time we will have two great speakers with their presentations:
Job DSL or scripted/declarative pipelines are becoming the standard when it comes to defining jobs in Jenkins. Now we need a similar solution to maintain Jenkins itself. At this meetup Ewelina will present the Configuration as Code Plugin.
Can we consider the emerging Configuration as Code Plugin as a silver-bullet for every use-case?
Of course not - it does not support each Jenkins plugin nor offer scripting support for complex cases. But you can use other tools to achieve that! We will talk about the Groovy Hooks engine in Jenkins, which allows working with Jenkins on a low-level, using a universal programming language. How to use it efficiently? How to use Groovy Hooks together with Configuration as Code plugin?
