Registration for JUC 2015 is Open!

It's that time of the year again: 2015 Jenkins User Conference Registration is OPEN for all cities. This year, we are making some changes to JUC — JUC will be a two-day event in three out of the four cities across the globe. You will get opportunities to network with other users and developers in the community, learn more about how other people are using Jenkins and attacking broader continuous delivery problem. As always, we love to meet & talk to you to learn what you are doing with Jenkins. To get the sense of how JUC is like, take a look at our past JUC reports like this and this.

Early Bird pricing for JUC tickets is available until May 1.

Jenkins User Conference – Save the Date

We have some exciting news to share with you! We have finalized most of the dates and locations for the 2015 Jenkins User Conference (JUC) World Tour.

Save the date(s):

  • US East (Washington DC): June 18-19
  • Europe (London): June 23-24
  • Israel: July 16 (ETA)
  • US West (Santa Clara): September 2-3

The big news? The JUC agenda has been expanded this year to cover two days! That means you get twice as many opportunities to learn how others are using Jenkins and to network with other Jenkins users.

CALL FOR PAPERS IS OPEN FOR ALL JUC CONFERENCES

We need JUC speakers! The Call for Papers is open now and you can apply here. This is an opportunity for YOU to give back to the community by sharing your Jenkins knowledge and success. Jenkins speakers contribute significantly to the overall JUC experience.

In return for speaking, you will receive free admission to the conference and fame/fortune within the Jenkins community. OK, we can’t guarantee the latter, but we can guarantee the former! Hurry and apply now, because the Call for Papers deadline for US East and Europe expires on March 22, 2015.

Jenkins Celebration Day is February 26

Congratulations! The Jenkins project officially went over the 100K active users mark sometime in January. As of January 31, we were at 102,992. YOU are one of the 100K active users!

As discussed on a couple recent project meetings, we have designated February 26 as Jenkins Celebration Day.

To make some noise, here is what we are doing starting NOW:

  • Write a blog about anything related to Jenkins. Post your blog and Tweet out a link to it. Include the hashtag #Jenkins100K in your post.
  • On February 26, we will hold a raffle and pick four names at random. The grand prize winner will get a 3D Jenkins Butler model. Five others will get their pick of Jenkins swag (up to $20) from the Jenkins online store.

OTHER WAYS TO CELEBRATE

There are a number of other things planned and we want YOU to be involved. This blog post is the central place to come for all things related to the celebration.

Office Hours tomorrow: workflow security model & plugin compatibility

In tomorrow's Jenkins office hours, Jesse Glick will talk about two topics in the workflow plugin that he has been asked about:

  • Security model: script security, permissions
  • Plugin compatibility: SimpleBuildStep and friends, custom steps, etc.

The session should be interesting to anyone using workflow or thinking about using workflow. Jesse is one of the top contributors in the community, so it'd be definitely worth your time!
