More Jenkins-related continuous delivery events in Chicago, Washington DC, and San Francisco

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!

Jenkins Workflow Summit RSVP

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.

Jenkins User Meet-up in Paris

My apologies for the last minute announcement, but there will be a Jenkins user meet-up in Paris on Sep 10th 7:00pm, which is just next week. The event is hosted by Zenika. You'll hear from Gregory Boissinot and Adrien Lecharpentier about plugin development, and I'll be talking about workflow.

It's been a while we do a meet-up in Paris. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. The event is free, but please RSVP so that we know what to expect.

Jenkins User Meet-up in London

As I was alluding to earlier, I was hoping to have a meetup of Jenkins users in London for a while. I'm happy to report that the agenda is final and RSVP is open! The date is September 8th.

I'll talk about my recent chef/puppet integration work in Jenkins. Sven from Perforce will talk about how to leverage Perforce features from Jenkins, and then James Nord will talk about workflow. It will be a worthy 2 hours.

If the line up of talks will not be enough to sway you, you should also know that I will bring some Jenkins give-aways!

I'm not sure how many people to expect, but there's a cap at 80 people, so if you are thinking about coming, be sure to RSVP. Looking forward to seeing many of you there!
