It seems a bit unreal, but the last JUC agenda for 2015 is now online. Jenkins User Conference U.S. West is the last JUC of the year running from September 2-3 in Santa Clara, CA. So, if you haven't attended JUC yet this year, this is your chance!
Register with a friend to take advantage of the community's 2-for-1 deal and get two tickets for the price of one.
Which talk are you looking forward to most? Check out the agenda and tweet your choice to @jenkinsconf!
Slides and video from JUC Europe are now available online!
If you made it to London to attend this year's JUC Europe, I hope you enjoyed the conference, met plenty of community members and learned more about Jenkins. Now that the slides and video are up, you can revisit your favorite talks or "attend" the ones that you missed...all at your leisure.
If you were unable to attend JUC Europe, well, now you can! The slides and video are here so you can "attend" any time you want. If JUC LIVE seems more appealing to you, there is one date left in the 2015 Jenkins User Conference World Tour: JUC U.S. West is September 2-3 in Santa Clara, CA. Register here.
This is a guest post by Manuel Recena Soto (aka recena).
Users of the plug-in know that it has undergone very important changes in the last two years.
Unfortunately, some of these changes resulted in regressions for some users that weren’t properly addressed in subsequent releases. Many users were therefore forced to keep using an older release of the plugin to keep their instances running.
To fix this difficult situation I've decided to dedicate my spare time to improving the plug-in and attempting to restore the stability that an essential plug-in like this requires.
In order to do so, me, my colleague Steven Christou and other members of the community have drawn up a plan.
In the coming weeks we will be focusing our efforts on:
- Going through the Jira tickets
- Checking whether they are duplicated
- Checking whether they are still relevant
- Asking for more information from the people who reported them
- Establishing their priority
- Reviewing pull requests
- Investigating bug reports and try to reproduce them
- Fixing serious bugs
- Refactoring the plugin to improve its maintainability.
We’re planning to publish a new 2.5.x bugfix release once a fortnight.
Uday made a blog post yesterday that he is looking at organizing a regular Jenkins meet-up in the Silicon Valley Bay Area dubbed "Bay Area Jenkins Area Meetup (JAM)."
As a first step, he wants to have a kick-off meeting, to get more insights and opinions about what the topics could be and what people want to hear. I'm really looking forward to it as a means to build a local network, so I signed myself up as a speaker of the first meet-up.
If you are in the Peninsula, South Bay, East Bay, etc., please send some encouragements to him by posting a comment, or better yet, come to the kick-off meeting.
