This year’s Jenkins World is the biggest and best ever!

And, in the midst of all the "hustle and bustle" of the training sessions, certifications, keynotes, presentations, panel sessions, lightning talks and fun, we took some important time to recognize and celebrate the accomplishments of Jenkins community members and CloudBees customers and partners in the inaugural Jenkins World Awards . The awards applaud industry-leading achievements in community contribution and DevOps. We received submissions and nominations from around the world and choosing the winners was certainly a difficult task for our judges.

A total of six awards were presented this morning in two categories: Jenkins Community Awards and CloudBees Innovation Awards.

  • Three Jenkins World community awards were selected by the Jenkins World Committee and Kohsuke Kawaguchi, recognizing Jenkins contributions, advocacy and security.

  • Three CloudBees Innovation Awards were selected by a panel of industry experts, including Alan Shimel of DevOps.com, Rob Stroud of Forrester and CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey, recognizing DevOps automation excellence, scalability achievement and solutions innovation.
