The Jenkins User Conference 2015 is seeking submissions that reflect the latest innovations in Jenkins usage. This is your chance to educate, share and inspire the community with stories of how you've used Jenkins to continuously build that amazing project or how you developed that popular plugin that everyone is using.
If you're gamed, here are some suggestions to get your creative juice going:
- Scaling Jenkins within the enterprise
- Jenkins as the orchestrator for continuous delivery
- Plug-in development
- Jenkins techniques that solve testing/building problems in specific application areas: mobile, enterprise/web/cloud and UI testing
- War stories that speak to a problem you faced, the Jenkins solution you implemented to solve it and the results you realized
- Jenkins best practices, tips and tricks
- Jenkins in the cloud - if you or your company is currently using Jenkins in the cloud we’d love to hear your story
- Beyond Java (Jenkins with PHP, Ruby, etc.)
We are upping the ante at this year's JUCs. We are moving from a 1 day conference to a 2 days conference for SF and London - that's 18 additional cutting edge sessions to be learned.
There's also a wide variety of event sponsorship opportunities available. There are offerings from Gold to Silver packages, exhibitor packages in our world-class expo hall, speaking sessions, free passes, and many branding opportunities. For inquiries, pls contact email@example.com
Looking forward to receiving your amazing proposals!
In tomorrow's Jenkins office hours, Jesse Glick will talk about two topics in the workflow plugin that he has been asked about:
- Security model: script security, permissions
- Plugin compatibility: SimpleBuildStep and friends, custom steps, etc.
The session should be interesting to anyone using workflow or thinking about using workflow. Jesse is one of the top contributors in the community, so it'd be definitely worth your time!
A lot of us has grown fond of our loyal butler Mr.Jenkins over time, which was created by Frontside and chosen as a result of a logo contest. In the true open-source style, the logo has since evolved into many different derivative works, such as a plugin, a 3D model, and a bobble head.
Our friends at CloudBees are running a #BreakingBuilds social media contest through Jan 5th to have some fun with Mr.Jenkins. Read Sacha Labourey's blog post, where he draws parallels between what a butler does and what continuous delivery can do.
I especially agree with him on this point: I always loved the idea of using a butler to represent what Jenkins is about, as it projects all of the qualities that define continuous delivery: it is built to be proactive, it will help you fix problems before they happen, it orchestrates your entire pipeline to production without you having to worry about the sophisticated underlying sequence of steps and, if things go wrong Jenkins uses his fingerprint database to trace back the source of the issue. Full service. As your right arm, Jenkins is the reliable and trustworthy guy you want on your team!
Check out the contest rules and participate. Let's raise the visibility of Jenkins and have some fun in the process!
