Jesse Glick will host the next office hour this Wednesday, 11 AM PDT on Workflow.
Workflow has been Jesse's project for the last year or so. If you don't know what Workflow is, check out these talks about it from past JUCes:
This will be a developer-focused session on integrating with Workflow. He'll discuss things like how to make sure your plugin can be used as part of workflows, and best practices for extending the workflow DSL. There's already been a session on Workflow in January, but Jesse hasn't been idle, and there's new stuff to share.
Participate in the Hangout on Air or watch live on YouTube.
Mobile is Joining the Party At This Year’s Jenkins User Conference
Consider this as a shout out to mobile app developers: You are invited! For the first time, there’s a mobile track at this year’s Jenkins User Conference to discuss the best ways to extend CI/CD to mobile application testing.
A week ago we reported that Uday is looking at organizing a regular Jenkins meet-up in Silicon Valley. This has made a progress since then, and this evening we'll get together to figure out logistics for the first meet-up:
- August 5th, Wednesday 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
- Starbucks, 750 Castro St, Mountain View, CA 94041
The agenda is:
As you may have noticed, our wiki and issue tracker were unavailable from Thursday to Sunday last week. What happened?
We host parts of our infrastructure at the Open Source Lab at Oregon State (OSUOSL), including the databases for these two services. So far, there's no post mortem by OSUOSL (they expect to post one later this week), so we need to piece together what we know.
The databases for the wiki and issue tracker became inaccessible around midnight/12 AM Thu/Fri night (all times UTC). Due to the large number and size of databases on that server, pulling from backups, restoring from backup and replaying the binlogs took them quite a while. During that time, we put up a maintenance screen on the wiki (and messed up the one for Jira, so there were connection timeouts instead).
The databases were back around 3 AM on Sunday. We disabled the maintenance screens around 6 PM later that day.
While this was a rather lengthy outage, it could have been much worse. We lost none of the data, after all. We thank the OSUOSL team for their efforts getting everything back up over the weekend!
