There'll be several talks that touch Jenkins. The first is from me and Jesse called Next Step in Automation: Elastic Build Environment [CON3387] Monday 12:30pm.
Then later Tuesday, there's Building a Continuous Delivery Pipeline with Gradle and Jenkins [CON11237] from Benjamin Muschko of Gradleware.
Thursday has several Jenkins talks. One is The Deploy Factory: Open Source Tools for Java Deployment [CON1880] from Bruno Souza (aka the Java Man from Brazil) and Edson Yanaga. In this same time slot, guys from eBay are doing Platform Upgrades as a Service [CON5685], which discusses how they rely on automation to make platform upgrades painless. Then Mastering Continuous Delivery and DevOps [CON1844] from Michael Huttermann.
In the exhibit area, the Jenkins project doesn't have its own booth (JavaOne is too expensive for that), but I'll be at the CloudBees booth, so is Jesse Glick. Find us at the booth for any Jenkins questions or impromptu hacking session, which would really help us as we get distracted from the booth duties that way. Or just drop by to get stickers, pin badges, and other handouts to take for your colleagues.
And finally, Script Bowl 2014: The Battle Rages On [CON2939] gets an honorable mention because our own Tyler Croy is representing JRuby against other scripting languages, including my favorite Groovy. Hmm, who should I root for...
The usual suspects, such as CloudBees, XebiaLabs, SOASTA, PuppetLabs, et al are doing a Jenkins-themed continuous delivery event series called "cdSummit." The event is free, has a nice mix of user/vendor talks, and has an appeal to managers and team leads who are working on and struggling with continuous delivery and automation.
I've spoken in the past events, and I enjoyed the high-level pitches from various speakers. The last two events at Paris and London filled up completely, so I suspect others have liked them, too.
If you live near Chicago, Washington DC, or San Francisco, check out the date and see if you can make it. RSVP is from here. If you do, be sure to pick up Jenkins stickers and pin badges!
As was discussed some time ago, the workflow summit is being organized, and it's open for RSVP.
Due to the overwhelming demand, I've increased the capacity this time to 50, but this is an unconference where everyone needs to participate, which means we really cannot have too many people without changing the dynamics of the event.
So please make sure you are willing to participate, as in not just listening and watching, but actually willing to speak. We expect you to bring something to the table — opinions, experiences, rants, presentations, feedbacks, etc. If you don't please let others take the seat, and rest assured we will give a presentation about workflow in JUC Bay Area.
If you understand the criteria, please RSVP is from here.
