The polls are open for the Jenkins Logo Contest!

After a number of absolutely fantastic logo submissions from a number of designers, I'm extremely pleased to open the polls on the vote for the brand new Jenkins logo!

The thumbnails do not do any of these logos justice in my opinion, so I recommend opening each logo up in its own tab to get the full effect :)

I plan to end voting March 28th at 12:01 UTC.

The Logos

Updated Usage Stats Available!

Updated usage statistics are now available at This data has been scrubbed of distinguishing information as much as possible, filtered for installations we've seen at least twice a month with at least one job set up, and split up into monthly JSON files. Starting with August, we only have data on installations of version 1.368 or later - before that, reports go to the old Oracle-owned server, and we aren't able to retrieve them. So that's why you'll see a fairly hefty drop in install count, etc from July to August.

I haven't had a chance to do any analysis to speak of on the data. I intend to get the plugin usage spreadsheet updated n the next few days, but I wanted to make this data available to you all ASAP. If you come up with any interesting analysis or use of the data, please let us know!

Upcoming Jenkins events in Tokyo

I'll be visiting Tokyo again for the week of 2/21 for a number of events.

Tokyo Jenkins User Meetup

The Japanese Jenkins user community may not be as visible from outside but very strong. This is the 2nd meet up in Tokyo, and once again we maxed out the 80 people room capacity in just a few days (but you can still RSVP for the social event after the meetup.) This meetup is focused on Java & Jenkins, so we have a number of speakers lined up to discuss hwo they use Jenkins in their Java projects. This will be the first user meetup event after the name has changed to Jenkins.

CloudBees Jenkins training in Tokyo

I'll deliver this one-day training course, all about Jenkins from the setup to continuous deployment to code analysis. If you are interested, you can find more details about this.

Japan Grails/Groovy User Group (JGGUG)

Jenkins internally use Groovy a lot in many places (as well as some of its peripheral tools depend on Groovy.) So I'll be speaking in the JGGUG meetup event, on behalf of the Jenkins project, and highlight those usages and how much we all love Groovy. Yes, I do.

First Governance Meeting Recap

As mentioned on Friday the Jenkins project held it's first meeting on the IRC channel at the request of the interim board. In the interest of transparency, we recorded meeting minutes and tried to involve as many folks as possible.

Topics Covered

  • Proposal/Discussion of Jenkins project governance structure
  • What to do about the logo
  • Registering the Jenkins trademark
  • Moving Jenkins under an umbrella organization
  • What shall we do with a new CLA?
  • Logistics for the next project meeting

If you're interested, you can read through the full logs or just look over the high-level meeting minutes.

This first meeting went a bit long due to the massive amount of items needing to be discussed, so the project has scheduled another meeting for Wednesday Feb 9, 11am PST (19:00 UTC); mark your calendars!

Thanks to everybody who participated, we'll see you again next time.


This page will be fleshed out further at another time :)
