Jenkins is a great tool for automation of all kinds of processes in the software development cycle. Falling back to the year 2008 I remember myself creating my first job and the feeling of enlightenment flowing through my veins :) Then it was just one script running on just one slave (node) and it was enough for that particular task. But years have passed, software systems have become more complicated and terms like «cloud», «distributed environment», «CI/CD» are not a discovery for anyone nowadays. But how can these things be connected and used by Jenkins? The detailed answer for this question will be revealed in my presentation of "compound-cloud" plugin at JUC Europe 2015.
Before I got to Yandex, the QA's automation concept was the following:
In continuing my infra upgrade work, this weekend I'll be migrating JIRA to another server.
This will make upgrade more manageable and testable. The service will be disrupted for a few hours. Check out our @jenkinsci on Twitter for up-to-the-minute status.
Once the migration is done, the next step is to upgrade them.
I have some exciting news -- The agendas have been posted for the Jenkins User Conferences (JUC) to be held at U.S. East (Alexandria, VA) and Europe (London). Take a look here to learn more about the talks, speakers and schedules.
As always, there is a great lineup of presenters ready to share their Jenkins stories: Peter Vilim will be presenting “Proving a First Class User Experience with Jenkins” at the U.S. East JUC, and Sander Kieft’s talk is called “Automating a Big Data Platform with Jenkins” at JUC Europe. Learn more about all 2015 JUC speakers and talks here. Explore the pages and see the who/what/where of all JUC 2015 locations!
The 2015 JUC World Tour dates are rapidly approaching. Since the community has grown so tremendously since last year, the JUC in each city will be the largest gathering of Jenkins users in that region.
Kohsuke will, as always, be the opening keynote speaker at each JUC. But, with the conference going from one to two days, I am happy to announce that Gene Kim will be another keynote on the second day! He is the author of The Phoenix Project and a thought leader in DevOps.
To have these two experts in one place will provide a great opportunity to talk about Jenkins as the foundation of continuous delivery and DevOps practices.
