CloudEvents Plugin for Jenkins: Moving Towards Interoperability

Session Description

In this talk, we will look at interoperability as an essential element in building workloads across several services. We will also talk about how CloudEvents solves one of the biggest challenges in achieving interoperability between systems: lack of normalization/standardization. CloudEvents solves this problem by defining a standard format for events, which can be emitted/consumed agnostically, thereby achieving indirect interoperability. Shruti will demonstrate the workings of CloudEvents Plugin for Jenkins; she will demonstrate an example of how Jenkins can be configured to work alongside CloudEvents-compliant CI/CD tools. We will take a look at how multiple CloudEvents-compliant, open-source, CI/CD tools, can work together to help us build a multi-tool workload.
