Jenkins and Chef: Infrastructure CI and Application Deployment
Wednesday, 18 June 2014 - 8:25pm – 9:10pm
This session will discuss two key components of our deployment pipeline: Continuous integration of Chef code and automated deployment of Java applications. CI jobs for Chef code run static analysis and then provision, configure and test EC2 instances. Release jobs publish new cookbook versions to the Chef server. Deployment jobs identify target EC2 and VMware nodes and orchestrate Chef client runs. The flexibility of Jenkins is essential to our overall delivery architecture.
