Surya walked us through the dotCI source code yesterday, and a bunch of ideas about how to reuse pieces are discussed. The recording is on YouTube, and my notes are here.
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!
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.
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!
