In my spare time, I am involved in the Apache Maven project. We are in the process of migrating from Subversion to Git and a number of people wanted to know how we might find some better ways of working with Jenkins.

I thought it would be useful to create a video series showing how we make these improvements. While some aspects of these improvements rely on Apache-specific infrastructure choices, the ideas themselves are more generally applicable.

A long time ago, I wrote a series of blog posts on developing plugins for Jenkins. A lot has changed since then, and hopefully this video series will provide a different take on plugin development and show what exactly is involved in developing a custom, Jenkins plugin to solve an organization-specific need.

Anyway, here's Episode 1. I am planning 11, in total. 

I hope you like the series and learn from it!
