What to expect from CloudBees Connect's Sessions

  • Is your software delivery process driving your business forward or holding it back? by Duncan Adamson, CloudBees

    DevOps has been around for over 15 years and the benefits of a unified process across multiple teams is clear. However, enterprises still find it difficult - if not impossible - to make software delivery rapid, repeatable and scalable. Now, DevOps implementation isn’t magic, and transforming into a well oiled software delivery machine doesn’t happen overnight. You’ve taken the first steps but know you can do better. This session will start with an overview of common challenges in modern software delivery and highlight solutions to overcoming these challenges with focus on CI/CD as the cornerstone of DevOps practices.

     In this keynote presentation, you will hear how best-of-breed platforms, like the CloudBees platform, are key to being able to:

    • Integrate, unify, extend, and automate the creation, build, testing, and packaging of code and artifacts.

    • Model, orchestrate, and visualize complex application releases and deployment models.

    • Gain real-time visibility.

    • Release and manage new features rapidly at scale.

    • Manage continuous code and infrastructure compliance in real-time from commit through production.

  • Developer Experience and Platform Engineering in the age of Progressive Delivery by James Governor, RedMonk

    As developer velocity and productivity become critical priorities for businesses, we have seen more organizations attempt to address the developer experience gap: the disjointed experience resulting from fragmentation of the tools and processes used to build and release software. One solution: the emergence of teams dedicated to provisioning platforms that integrate these tools and processes so that application developers can focus their creative efforts on writing code. Meanwhile platforms need to support the entire lifecycle from idea to code to deployment, with increasingly sophisticated release patterns - canarying, feature flags, A/B testing - becoming mainstream. James Governor, co-founder of RedMonk, came up with the industry term Progressive Delivery. In this talk he covers trends in platform engineering, developer experience and modern software delivery, as the lessons of DevOps, agile and CI/CD are refactored as cloud-first, developer-first patterns.

  • Customer Highlight: Connecting Software Delivery to Business Outcomes: The Epic Balance of Moving Faster and Safer while Reducing Risk

    Welcome to our world where software applications are the critical driver of business performance. Every moment, business is won or lost based on the software we deliver to our customers, and the demands of the customer are ever-growing. That’s why companies across all industries are prioritizing software delivery to get better, more secure and compliant software to their customers faster.  

    Nationwide Building Society is in the midst of an Agile transformation, driven by an exciting DevOps strategy. This strategy is enabling the secure delivery of new capabilities to ensure customer needs can be met faster while meeting the compliance requirements necessary in a highly-regulated industry. Balancing developer innovation and autonomy with governance and compliance guardrails hasn’t been easy though. While their journey continues, Nationwide has made considerable progress, creating a modern, best in class software delivery architecture and culture, ensuring customer need is always front of mind.

    • The need for speed is proportional to the need for safety. So, how do you deliver new capabilities to customers faster without compromising security?

    • How do you adapt existing DevOps workflows to assure governance and compliance?

    • How do you deliver consistent value?

    • What are the challenges in running the centralized CICD Platform?

    • How was the journey on rolling out Enterprise CI solution – the CloudBees Jenkins?

Workshops

What to expect from CloudBees Connect's hands-on workshops

  • CloudBees CI Configuration as Code (CasC)

    CloudBees CI, our leading CI/CD solution built on Jenkins(R), provides additional Configuration as Code (CasC) capabilities to simplify the management of CloudBees CI (Jenkins) Controllers at scale, by capturing the configuration of CloudBees CI controllers in human-readable declarative configuration files, which can then be applied to a controller in a reproducible way. By capturing the configuration in files, it can be treated as a first class revision-controlled artifact - versioned and then applied to controllers while being centrally managed from CloudBees CI Operations Center (“Controller of Controller”).

    These labs will introduce hands-on examples (interactive show and tell format) demonstrating how CloudBees CI CasC enables shared services teams and Jenkins admins to provide easily manageable, auditable and scalable configuration for any number of controllers. Participants who want to do these workshop labs on their own will get access and help to get set up to their personal CloudBees CI environment which will remain online and available for a few weeks. 

    We'll cover how to leverage the unique features of CasC for CloudBees CI to:

    • Deploy configuration-as-code at scale by using inheritance and automating the provisioning of controllers

    • Configure full environments for controllers using human-readable YAML files

    • Apply best practices to better control security, plugins and share configurations across any number of controllers
