The folks at Rebel Labs picked Jenkins as the last installation of their technical report series. It is a beautifully crafted 50 page PDF that covers the overview of the technology. You get to see a bit of details about how ZeroTurnaround uses Jenkins, and it contains a section where I get interviewed by them.
A few months ago I enjoyed running a couple interviews with folks who were using Hudson but lately I've lacked the time and coffee to get more interviews done.
I am planning on making up for it by bringing my fancy smancy tape recorder (i.e. a smartphone) and a few notepads to the upcoming JavaOne conference here in San Francisco.
If you're interested in talking to me about how you or your company uses Hudson in your quest for world domination, you will be able to find me at the Hudson hackathon on Sunday the 19th, or at JavaOne on Monday, Tuesday and maybe Wednesday.
Feel free to drop me a line at tyler[at]linux.com and we'll set something up!
For this week's user spotlight segment, I'm talking with Doug MacEachern of Hyperic, part of SpringSource, a division of VMware, hoping I got that dependency chain correct. Hyperic builds enterprise systems monitoring and management software and also contributes to a number of open source projects, many of which are built with Hudson.
To date I must say that Doug's use of Hudson is one of the largest and more impressive installations I've seen. I don't want to spoil the interview, but they're testing on platforms that don't even run Java. Madness! If you think you can out-do him, you can find my email information at the bottom of the interview, I'd love to hear about it!
