Tomorrow in Jenkins office hours, Surya Gaddipati will be going over DotCi, a package of features that integrates Jenkins closely with GitHub, configuration via .ci.yml file in source tree, built-in Docker support and MongoDB backend.
I think there's a number of interesting pieces here that could be split into individual plugins for reuse, and possible alignment with existing efforts like Script Security plugin or Literate plugin.
To record the show, this event will be in a different hangout from the usual one, but the time is the same. Looking forward to seeing you!
Following right on the heels of our US-East Jenkins User Conference in Boston
, we have JUC Europe in Berlin on June 25. Like the East Coast conference, the Berlin one is almost full, so sign up while you can.
Our venue in Berlin is KOSMOS
, a building with a fascinating history
. The building was inaugurated as a cinema in 1961. With 1001 seats, it was the largest, most modern and most popular film theatre in the former GDR and has since been extensively modernized in line with the requirements of historically listed buildings.
We have an excellent line-up of speakers
filling up two conference tracks.
Once again, we have some fabulous sponsors to thank. Without them, there would be no JUC.
This year we’ve introduced a new Community sponsorship level, which allows non-corporate groups like JUGSs to help support the conference as well. (Drop a note to juc-oc-ext AT cloudbees DOT com if your group is interested).
Jenkins won SDTimes 100, 2014
For the 5th year in a row, Jenkins project won SDTimes 100, 2014 this year under DevOps and SCM categories, along with other open-source projects like Chef, Docker, Git, LLVM, and Puppet.
I'd like to take this opportunity to once again thank the community for keeing us going strong. There's a lot of interesting efforts going on in the project, as always, so expect more stuff to come out from us in the coming days!
Over the past 30 days or so, the acceptance test project has made a great progress.
This project consists of a reusable harness that can be used by plugin developers and users to write functional test cases. These tests can be run against Jenkins instances that are deployed in all sorts of different ways, and can interact with complex real fixtures. These tests can be also run with specific version of Jenkins core and a combination of plugins.
The number of tests have steadily increased to above 300. Several of those are by Michael Prankl, where he tests the LDAP plugin with the real OpenLDAP server instance that runs inside Docker — a kind of test that just wasn't possible before can be now easily written.
