What’s innovative, collaborative, and only lives 24 hours? An CloudBees Hackathon! In the past year, we’ve had three of them. People from all over the organization participate, and the only two requirements are:
- You must have more than one person on your hackathon team
- Your hackathon project should benefit users of our product
- Dockerized Flow: The CloudBees Flow server and database components were packaged up as an easy-to-download-and-install Docker container. Another separate project allowed the automatic creation of these containers as part of our normal internal CI cycle and allows for a lighter, easier, cleaner upgrade path for these Dockerized Flow components.
- Flow Everywhere: iOS application that integrates directly into CloudBees Flow and allows quick, convenient pipeline review and approval.
- CloudBees Flow ExtraDashboard: Consolidates useful (and pretty!) real time and historical information into a single, user-friendly and easy to read dashboard.
- CloudBees Flow SubEx: A browser-based text-editor command editor for Flow that allows you retrieve information and update commander jobs and properties in real time.
- Jeronimo: A self-service onboarding and training course to educate users on CloudBees Accelerator to improve customer satisfaction.
- ITRS Geneos Plugin: Integrates this monitoring tool with CloudBees Flow to allow Geneos to automatically monitor new deployed instances of any application in any environment.
- Automated Regression Test (ART): A tool designed to help our internal development teams get faster feedback by scoping down our full test suite to focus on a particular feature they want to test.
- CloudBees Flow Feed: A dashboard activity feed that allows users to be notified of system news and/or items that are waiting for approval.
- Docs on Mobile: A project to make our documentation design more responsive so it renders more elegantly on various screen sizes.
- CloudBees Flow + Perforce: This is the first time we’ve had a partner participate in a hackathon, and it was great – something we’d like to see more of moving forward. The integration they worked on allowed lighter-weight checkouts using p4clean to drastically accelerate builds.
- Ask Stuart: A machine-learning algorithm to help improve customer ability to find answers for frequently asked questions by matching up keywords and knowledge-based articles.
- Makefile Viewer: A utility that creates a dynamic webpage based on the contents, targets, and dependencies of a makefile.
- SplunkFlow: This plugin makes it easy to add CloudBees Flow logs and data into Splunk, and then embed Splunk reports into CloudBees Flow itself.
- CindyBot: Cindy is a developer at EC. She is also responsible for keeping tools up to date. But that takes a ton of time to roll those tools out into the 12 different windows snapshots we need as build/test targets (up to a day). CindyBot automates that work for us, and now it will take about 30 minutes. So, now we expect to see a lot more code from Cindy!
- DSLIDE: Provides an interactive IDE with coloration, auto-completion and code samples that makes it easy to create and test code created using our new Groovy-based domain specific language.
- CloudBees Flow Full Text Search: This project uses Hibernate to allow users to find a text string anywhere in the CloudBees Flow server environment.
