No pain. No gain. Sometimes it’s true … but not always.
For many of us in the tech industry, we’ve observed the movement towards a cloud native environment and its role for keeping businesses competitive. We’ve realized this shift towards cloud adoption impacts not only an organization’s software development methodology but also the way IT operations approach their business to accommodate these changes. As a result, DevOps managers and developers need to understand how this new era requires them to build cloud native applications quickly to remain competitive.
But building cloud native apps is not easy, and finding tools that can reduce the headache and hide the complexities to automate the process can make a developer’s life a lot easier. Open source tools such as Jenkins X and Kubernetes does just that. Together they represent a powerful continuous integration and continuous delivery combination for developers.
Next week, a new book launches at DevOps World | Jenkins World 2018 — Building Cloud Native Apps Painlessly: The Prescriptive Guide to Kubernetes and Jenkins X — to educate developers and DevOps managers on how Jenkins X and Kubernetes will help them shift towards a modern application development model. Written by industry DevOps veterans Robert Davies, Brian Dawson, James Rawlings and James Strachan, the guide helps readers understand why Jenkins X is important from a technical and business perspective, how Jenkins X removes the complexity of Kubernetes, and offers basic steps for getting started with Jenkins X.
Attend the book signing by James Strachan, the chief architect of Jenkins X, on September 18 at 6:00-6:30 in the CloudBees booth #117 during DevOps World | Jenkins World 2018 in San Francisco. Books will be available at a discounted rate during the conference.
