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!
JUC SF on October 23, 2014 is shaping up to be bigger and better this year.

Over the last number of weeks we've been trying to "refresh" the Jenkins UI, modernizing the look and feel a bit. This has been a real community effort, with collaboration from lots of people, both in terms of implementation and in terms of providing honest/critical feedback. Lots of people deserve credit but, in particular, a big thanks to Kevin Burke and Daniel Beck.
You're probably familiar with how the Jenkins UI currently looks, but for the sake of comparison I think it's worth showing a screenshot of the current/old UI alongside a screnshot of the new UI.

Among other things, you'll see:
RebelLabs started annual Geek Choice Awards, and Jenkins was one of the 10 winners. See the page they talk about Jenkins.
My favorite part is, to quote, "Jenkins has an almost laughably dominant position in the CI server segment", and "With 70% of the CI market on lockdown and showing an increasing rate of plugin development, Jenkins is undoubtably the most popular way to go with CI servers."
