Jenkins in the Enterprise: Building Resilient CI Infrastructure
Wednesday, 25 June 2014 - 5:40pm – 6:25pm
Come to our show where we talk about what CloudBees sees as challenges of deploying, operating, and using large-scale Jenkins installations, and what we are doing to help those users succeed; we’ll talk about Jenkins in the continuous delivery era and our efforts in this space, such as Chef/Puppet deployment tracking and workflow. We’ll talk about our innovations in DEV@cloud, our hosted Jenkins, and how we bring its goodness to your Jenkins on premises. And last but not least, we’ll demo how Jenkins Operations by CloudBees helps organizations scale Jenkins horizontally.

Kohsuke Kawaguchi is the creator of Jenkins. He is a well-respected developer and popular speaker at industry and Jenkins community events. He’s often asked to speak about his experience and approach in creating Jenkins; a CI platform that has become a widely adopted and successful community-driven open source project. The principles behind the Jenkins community - extensibility, inclusiveness, low barriers to participation - have been the keys to its success. Kawaguchi’s sensibilities in creating Jenkins and his deep understanding of how to translate its capabilities into usable software have also had a major impact on CloudBees’ strategy as a company. Before joining CloudBees, Kawaguchi was with Sun Microsystems and Oracle, where he worked on a variety of projects and initiated the open source work that led to Jenkins.
