Jenkins Workflow Summit RSVP

As was discussed some time ago, the workflow summit is being organized, and it's open for RSVP.

Due to the overwhelming demand, I've increased the capacity this time to 50, but this is an unconference where everyone needs to participate, which means we really cannot have too many people without changing the dynamics of the event.

So please make sure you are willing to participate, as in not just listening and watching, but actually willing to speak. We expect you to bring something to the table — opinions, experiences, rants, presentations, feedbacks, etc. If you don't please let others take the seat, and rest assured we will give a presentation about workflow in JUC Bay Area.

If you understand the criteria, please RSVP is from here.

Jenkins User Meet-up in Paris

My apologies for the last minute announcement, but there will be a Jenkins user meet-up in Paris on Sep 10th 7:00pm, which is just next week. The event is hosted by Zenika. You'll hear from Gregory Boissinot and Adrien Lecharpentier about plugin development, and I'll be talking about workflow.

It's been a while we do a meet-up in Paris. Looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible. The event is free, but please RSVP so that we know what to expect.

JUC SF 2014 is Here!

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

Here’s what we have in store for you!

Three Tracks

We’ve received a record high of 40 stellar proposals this year. To accommodate the many community proposals, we’ve decide to add a third track to the agenda. JUC SF sessions are now available for you to view. We have speakers from Google, Target, Gap, Cloudera, Ebay, Chicago Drilling Company, and much more. Register now for early bird price. The early bird price is only good until September 21, 2014.

Live Stream

If you can’t attend the conference in person, Track 1 sessions will be available via live stream, it’s all free. Brought to you by CloudBees. Registration for JUC SF live stream is here.

Workflow plugin code walk-through

Jesse and I will walk through the source code of the workflow plugin, highlights key abstractions and extension points, and discuss how they are put together.

If you are interested in developing or retrofitting plugins to work with workflows, I think you'll find this session interesting.

The event will be on Google Hangout tomorrow. The time of the day is the same as usual office hours.

Official Jenkins LTS docker image

(This is a guest post from Michael Neale)


Recently at the Docker Conference (DockerCon) the Docker Hub was announced.

The hub (which includes their image building and storage service) also provides some "official" images (sometimes they call them repositories - they are really just sets of images).

So after talking with all sorts of people we decided to create an official Jenkins image - which is hosted by the docker hub simply as "jenkins".

So when you run "docker pull jenkins" - it will be grabbing this image. This is based on the current LTS (and will be kept up to date with the LTS) - but does not include the weekly releases (yet). Having a jenkins image that is fairly basic (it includes enough to run some basic builds, as well as jenkins itself) built on the LTS, on the latest LTS of Ubuntu seemed quite convenient - and easy to maintain using the official Ubuntu/Debian packaging of Jenkins.
