Jenkins Office Hours: dotCi

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!

Jenkins User Meet-up in London?

I'll be visiting London in early September, and if possible I'd love to organize some get together of Jenkins users/devs. I wonder if anyone is interested in hosting the event?

I think it just needs to fit 20 or so people, so all we need is a single conference room somewhere in London. If you think you might be able to help, please drop us a note at the events list.

JUC Boston, what a day!

We kicked off this year's Jenkins User Conference world tour in Boston this Wednesday. The event was well-attended with more than 450 people registered and 400+ people showed up. So big thank you for everyone who came!

Workflow plugin that Jesse presented was a big hit and lit up twittersphere, and while I was only able to listen to parts of sessions as people had questions and comments for me, ones that I've seen were great. Alyssa told me that the sponsors were happy too, which is also important to keep events like this going.

Perhaps the biggest hit of all was the "get drunk on the code show by Steven Christou. When I got in, he packed 30 or so people in the room learning how to write a simple Jenkins plugin, and all the beer bottles were long gone!

JUC Europe Sneak Peak: Integrated Pipelines

This is a guest post from Markos Rendell, a Senior Manager at Accenture.


I am very much looking forward to the Jenkins User Conference in Berlin next week which I will be attending with a three other members of my team. We are all very passionate about automation, infrastructure-as-code, configuration management and of course… Jenkins. My team and I specialize in implementing continuous delivery for large scale transformation deliveries. We work with a wide range of technologies from open source, packaged products, through to software-as-a-service. We work with physical infrastructure, private cloud, public cloud and platforms-as-a-service, but there is one almost uniquely common factor… using Jenkins. At the conference I will be expecting to exchange views with others using Jenkins at similar scale and am particularly interested in sessions covering using Jenkins with Docker and making Jenkins more resilient.

Get together at beer garden for JUC Berlin

There'll be a number of active community people in the event, so let's take advantages of that and meet up. And there's no better place to do it than a beer garden in summer!

If you are coming to JUC Berlin, I've just set up an RSVP page for a beer garden get together the day before, and another dinner afterward.

Looking forward to seeing you!
