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
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!
We're getting excited about the Boston and Berlin JUC's in the next two weeks! Here's a preview of Forest Handford's upcoming JUC-US East Lightning Talk on June 18...
migrated to Subversion from a home-grown first generation version control system we needed a way to get the code compiled and sent to the running server. We selected Jenkins as our build server, with the hope of eventually using it for CI.
A MEDITECH application consists of hundreds of source files. Each source file translates to an object code file that the interpreter executes. This is one of the last major projects I worked on prior to leaving MEDITECH to work at Carbonite. In my Lightning Talk, "A Build Eco-System for Loosely Compiled Code," I'll discuss the toughest challenges my team had in getting Jenkins to work as our build server and how we eventually overcame them.
Staff from both Carbonite
and MEDITECH will be in attendance. Both companies are hiring!
Following right on the heels of our US-East Jenkins User Conference in Boston
, we have JUC Europe in Berlin on June 25. Like the East Coast conference, the Berlin one is almost full, so sign up while you can.
Our venue in Berlin is KOSMOS
, a building with a fascinating history
. The building was inaugurated as a cinema in 1961. With 1001 seats, it was the largest, most modern and most popular film theatre in the former GDR and has since been extensively modernized in line with the requirements of historically listed buildings.
We have an excellent line-up of speakers
filling up two conference tracks.
Once again, we have some fabulous sponsors to thank. Without them, there would be no JUC.
This year we’ve introduced a new Community sponsorship level, which allows non-corporate groups like JUGSs to help support the conference as well. (Drop a note to juc-oc-ext AT cloudbees DOT com if your group is interested).
