Thursday, 23 October 2014 - 12:45pm – 1:30pm
Jenkins may start small in a company, but it often spreads across departments faster than a virus. And the bigger the installation, the more care you need to take in setting up your Jenkins infrastructure. In this talk, we’ll teach you our top ten best practices that enterprises can use to get the most out of Jenkins. As part of the discussion, we’ll share a few case studies from companies who have implemented Jenkins on a large scale and who are supporting dozens of development teams, hundreds of applications and thousands of builds per month. We’ll also give you our list of top five most useful plugins for your Jenkins installation, and teach you our favorite tips on how to jump-start your Jenkins installation/optimization activities. If you have a specific problem or question, bring it along for our Q&A board!
