All our ducks are in a row:
- Attendees: Check – over 300 Jenkins users, at last count
- Sponsors: Check – seven vendors have stepped forward to underwrite the conference and show their commitment to the Jenkins community (CloudBees, Liferay, Red Hat, New Relic, Sauce Labs, Chariot Solutions, eXo)
- Sessions: Check – we have 12 fabulous Jenkins-specific sessions lined up for YOU to attend!
It is the latter point that is the latest breaking JUC news. Monday we announced the final line-up of speakers who will be presenting to you. The selections were tough to make, as we had about 30 amazing papers submitted for consideration. Any of them would have been compelling for JUC attendees.
The Jenkins JUC Committee made some hard choices between the various submissions. As a result, we feel we have a well-rounded line-up of a myriad of timely topics for you. Session content runs the gamut from controlling Jenkins “sprawl” within the enterprise (Sacha Labourey, CloudBees), to scaling Jenkins up to some significant deployments – and living to tell about it (James Min, Liferay; Nam Duong, Red Hat), to several other topics about the use of plug-ins (Charles Lowell, The Frontside; Toomas Romer, Zero Turnaround), optimizing continuous integration (R. Tyler Croy, Lookout; Johannes Wienke, et al, CoR-Lab; Dean Yu, Yahoo!), using Eclipse in a continuous integration environment (Mik Kersten, Tasktop), extreme testing with Selenium and Jenkins (Jason Higgins, Sauce Labs), the use of Agile ALM methodologies on the Jenkins platform (Michael Hüttermann, Michael Hüttermann Consulting), and the extensibility of Jenkins (Ryan Campbell, CloudBees).
We are almost at the point of being oversubscribed for the conference and announcing this content will probably push us over the top!
If you haven’t done so already, check out the presenters and their content. Then get yourself signed up while there are still openings available.
See you in San Francisco on October 2!
