Introduction to Jenkins

This training is an introduction to Jenkins and its environment. Learn how to easily create automated pipelines while putting in place best practices for continuous integration and continuous delivery. Learn how to get help from and contribute back to the Jenkins community.

Following an overview of the Jenkins ecosystem and community, we will cover key concepts and tools related to continuous integration and continuous delivery, such as: source code management, build, test and deployment. The core part of the training will be based on practical examples of pipeline creation, using the Blue Ocean Visual Pipeline Editor. We will also leverage other key components of Blue Ocean such as pipeline visualization, troubleshooting and personalization. We will conclude by introducing the powerful concept of Declarative Pipeline syntax and how it enables all DevOps team members, regardless of expertise, to participate in the continuous delivery process.

DevOps Leader Certification Training

A DevOps leader is a tactical or strategic individual who helps design, influence, implement or motivate the cultural transformation proven to be a critical success factor in DevOps adoption. This individual understands the human dynamics of cultural change and is equipped with practices, methods and tools to engage people across the DevOps spectrum.

The learning objectives for the DevOps Leader Certification training include a practical understanding of many important concepts, such as differences between DevOps IT and traditional IT, as well as important cultural and business considerations. Registrants MUST attend the virtual session (or take DevOps Foundation with one of the REPS) and you can take the DevOps Foundation Certification at your own convenience.  Registrants will not be able to take the DevOps Test Engineering or DevOps Leader exam without proof of DevOps Foundation certification.
