All of us here at CloudBees are committed to making Jenkins the de-facto tool for continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD). In addition to our CloudBees Jenkins Platform and Private SaaS Edition products we continue to invest heavily in Jenkins through contributions to Jenkins core, Pipeline, Blue Ocean and many vital plugins for Jenkins. Our success is dependent on Jenkins’ success.
This investment in open source software (OSS) is manifest in an engineering team and resources dedicated to contributing bug fixes, security fixes and new features to Jenkins and its ecosystem. All of the work done by this team goes directly towards improving Jenkins and we want to keep everyone up-to-date with the changes we are making. To that end we have begun hosting monthly demonstrations to show off the latest and greatest changes we are working on and answer any questions.
We hosted the first of these “Demo Days” at the end of October and the second at the beginning of December. These videos are publicly available and viewable at anytime. If you have questions, you can always ask someone in IRC #jenkins.
Going forward we are going to host the live broadcast for these demonstrations regularly on the second Thursday of each month at 8 AM PST/4 PM GMT. We are also moving to CloudBeesTV as the host and archive for the videos. I have created a new Playlist for “CloudBees OSS Demonstrations” to allow you to quickly find all related videos.
The first OSS Demo Day on CloudBeesTV will be this Thursday, January 12, 2017. We hope you’ll join us and ask questions.
