The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit Workshop - $199
Includes 30 minute break for lunch

This workshop is based on the material published in The DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Building, testing, deploying and monitoring services inside Docker Swarm clusters.

The workshop will go through the whole microservices development lifecycle. We’ll start from the very beginning with architecture definition and design. From there, we’ll move on to requirements, technological choices and development environment setup, through coding and testing and then all the way to the final production deployment. We won’t stop there. Once our new services are up and running, we’ll see how to maintain them, scale - based on resource utilization and response time, and recover during failures. We’ll try to balance the need for creative manual work and the need to automate as much of the process as possible.

The goal will be to design a fully automated continuous deployment pipeline. We’ll see how microservices fit into a continuous deployment pipeline, explore immutable containers concepts and, finally, understand why the best results are obtained when those three are combined into one unique framework.

During the workshop we’ll explore tools like Docker, Docker Swarm, Docker Compose, Jenkins, HAProxy and a few others. We'll explore the practices and tools required to run a Swarm cluster. We'll go beyond a simple deployment. We'll explore how to create a continuous deployment process. We'll set up multiple clusters. One will be dedicated to testing and the other for production. We'll see how to accomplish zero-downtime deployments, what to do in case of a failover, how to run services at scale, how to monitor the systems and how to make the system heal itself. We'll explore the processes that will allow us to run the clusters on a laptop, as well as on different cloud providers.

The Final Mile: Jenkins Pipeline and Patterns for Operations - $99

Do your deployments need to be approved by a manager? Do you need to prove separation of duties?  How can you ensure infrastructure is available when teams need it? Should you use Jenkins, or an application release automation solution for deployment? Does automation of continuous delivery processes remove the need for operations?

In this workshop, we will review patterns of common problems and solutions specific to operations teams in a continuous delivery environment. We will then walk through how to address those patterns with Jenkins and Pipeline as Code, including hands-on exercises.

In this session you will learn:
- Cultural and organizational considerations for operations in modern development
- How operations can benefit from the power of Jenkins and Pipeline as Code
- How to create pipelines with Jenkins that address the needs of operations

Jenkins World 2017 Contributor Summit

RSVP Here

Let's talk about the future of Jenkins and how you can help shape it! The contributor summit is the place where the current and future contributors of the Jenkins project get together. This year, the theme is “working together”. Traditionally, most contributors are plugin maintainers focusing on their own plugins, but it’s important to look at Jenkins as a whole, because that’s how users experience it. There is more to the project beyond writing plugins, and even for plugin developers, there are increasing number of common libraries and modules that plugins should rely on. In short, we should work better together.

A few contributors will prepare some presentations to help clarify what that means, and what all of us can do. And in the afternoon, there will be "unconference" sessions to brainstorm and discuss what we can do and how.

Whether you are already a contributor or just thinking about becoming one, please join us for this full day free event. Attending is free, no conference ticket required.

Let's Build a Jenkins Pipeline! - $99
Jenkins Pipeline is a game-changing way to write automation jobs with Jenkins. Now Jenkins can support everything from simple, one-step, Hello World-type jobs to the most complex, parallel pipelines. Best of all, pipelines can include manual/automated interventions (for example, a manual approval step) and also pipeline processes that survive Jenkins master restarts. The declarative syntax recently added to Jenkins Pipeline and the Blue Ocean UX enable an easy process for creating pipelines and beautiful, graphical pipeline visualizations. Combining Jenkins Pipeline with Docker can seriously reduce friction in your DevOps efforts. Come learn how to use Jenkins to tie all these things together!

Leading the Transformation Workshop & Book - “Applying Agile and DevOps Principles at Scale” - $199

The workshop is designed to prepare Executives to lead the transformation of their software development processes and provide them with a common understanding of DevOps for the Enterprise. It will start by reviewing the improvements that are possible and highlighting the challenges of typical Enterprise transformations. It will then work through the steps of a successful transformation.

The workshop will focus on the changes that Executives are uniquely positioned to address and will have the biggest impact on the business. Instead of the typical transformation that focuses on improving the effectiveness of individual teams this approach focuses the Executives on engaging their management teams on improving the coordination across teams with DevOps approaches. Furthermore, the approach will focus on the important cultural changes that require Executive leadership.

The workshop will provide an in-depth review of DevOps, the different practices, and the different inefficiencies they were designed to address. It will highlight how and why DevOps principles can and should be different for coordinating the work across large and small teams. The goal is to ensure everyone has a common understanding of the principles, practices, and a framework for discussing their improvements.

At the end of the workshop Executives should have a much better understanding of their role in leading a successful transformation and the steps involved. They will also understand the importance of getting the organization engaged and supporting the changes.

All attendees will receive a free copy of Gary's Book "Starting & Scaling DevOps in the Enterprise" and will have the chance to get it signed by Gary from 5-6 p.m. on Wednesday during the evening event in the expo at the CloudBees booth.

How to Make an Open Source Project Successful - On Purpose

In the long run, running an Open Source project is quite similar to creating a startup business, where you keep investing heavy efforts without a guarantee that you will end up with a large and successful exit. Many open source projects are never meant for a large audience or user group, but rather are intended only for oneself or a few others. Yet some open source projects, by intention, do end up with wide adoption and an active community around it. What makes them succeed? On the contrary, what causes other open source projects to fail and just increase entropy?

With 20 + million open source repositories on GitHub today, it is most likely majority of those projects will end up as “abandonware” i.e. huge amount of time & resources invested that never got traction.

I’ve been consistently contributing to open source projects for 8 years, starting them from scratch or joining existing communities. I found some patterns that help treating your project as a conscious attempt to make something big enough to live its own life. The real world is full of opportunities and threats, and being aware of them will help to make your project intentionally successful

Auto-Convert Your Freestyle Jenkins Jobs to Coded Pipeline

If you are using Jenkins to orchestrate application releases, at any point in time, there would be a series of freestyle jobs chained together based on specific criteria to perform builds. To convert these freestyle jobs to pipeline, DevOps engineers will have to manually drill down to each of the 100s or 1000s of jobs, understand the tools, configurations, URLs, and parameters etc. and re-write those in pipeline syntax. This manual effort not only involves converting individual job logic but also requires to ensure that the chain is converted to a single pipeline while keeping a base-rule of 1 chain = 1 pipeline. However, as the number of jobs increases, it becomes extremely difficult to convert the freestyle jobs to coded pipelines.

Infostretch has created a plugin that drastically reduces the effort behind this manual process. Now, DevOps engineers can auto-generate the script for this conversion. The plugin ensures adherence to coding standards, separates complex business logic and standard declaration from execution flow declaration and accelerates the transition process of any new set of applications being on-boarded to pipeline.

Join our 15-minute presentation and demo by Sanil Pillai, Director of Infostretch Labs to:

  • Learn how the plugin can be used to enforce coding standards in your applications

  • Understand how auto-generated scripts can be pre-configured to use custom libraries

Remove Undifferentiated Heavy Lifting from Jenkins

Companies often have engineers dedicated to managing their Jenkins build environments but often we see developers spending time maintaining the underlying infrastructure instead of writing code. There are a number of plugins in the Jenkins ecosystem that can assist with reducing the overhead of your build farms. Unfortunately, these options often introduce additional complexity because they rely on other computing orchestration platforms such as Swarm, Mesos, or even AWS’ ECS container platform. There has to be a simpler way.

This session will show you how to integrate AWS CodeBuild with Jenkins to remove the overhead in creating, managing, and scaling your build farms.

In this session, you will learn:

Infrastructure Testing: Validating your Cloud Configuration in Jenkins Pipelines

Gone are the days of “stacking and racking" servers and networking gear. Infrastructure is software now and needs to be managed the same way we manage feature and testing code. But how do we take a test-driven approach to cloud resources? What constitutes success or failure, and how do we automate these infrastructure assertions like we do other kinds of tests?

Fugue is a cloud infrastructure management system designed to provision infrastructure and ensure it conforms to business rules, corporate IT policies, and known-good practices. Using a straightforward declarative syntax, teams can treat infrastructure code the same way they manage feature code and tests, and break the build if the infrastructure is wrong.

In this session, we will demonstrate:

  • Declarative code for provisioning a complete application environment in AWS

  • How to define a set of success conditions, including region-awareness, resource cost constraints, security group ingress rules, and other criteria

  • Using a git flow model and Jenkins Pipeline to test different rules per branch

  • Bringing it all together for on-demand policy-compliant production environment clones for every stage of delivery

Securing Your Code - From Zero to Hero

Cambia Health Solutions is a family of companies centered around incubating new technology in the healthcare space. With a shift to the cloud, our software needed to be bullet-proof against security defects in a fast-paced DevOps model. The problem: how to build in security along the entire pipeline, keep developers focused on writing great code, and do it all with speed and at scale. We created a complete program, sane security policies and integrated technology solutions that allowed Cambia to keep moving fast, while injecting security at every stage of the SDLC. And… our developers LOVE IT!

If you answer no to any of these questions you need to attend this presentation:

  • Is your current security process transparent to developers?

  • Do you know exactly what open source goes into your code, the associated licenses, versions and potential security issues?

  • Do development teams test early and often in the SDLC instead of waiting until just before production to ask for a scan of their application?

  • Do you think testing your software for security defects one or two times a year is enough, when changes to your software happen perhaps as often as several times a day?


Jeremy will share a complete picture of secure coding, testing and controls, addressing issues such as:

  • How to transform from a culture of “test it the week before production” to “test at every stage of the SDLC”

  • How to automate - without slowing down builds.

  • How to scale the program in a short time without adding staff.

  • How to give developers automated and actionable information early and often in the SDLC to enable good coding from design to deploy.

Automated Device Testing with AWS Device Farm and Jenkins

A strong indicator of quality of an app is its ability to run on multiple devices of different make, model, and manufacturer consistently and predictably. Incremental development models are at the core of every mobile app development team. Often a seemingly benign feature can be disruptive to the overall user experience and functioning of the app if not thoroughly tested. How do you ensure that every code check-in triggers tests for your mobile app against numerous devices and provides detailed analysis of the results?

AWS Device Farm is an app testing service. You can use it to test and interact with your Android, iOS, and web apps on physical phones and tablets that are hosted by AWS. You can use Device Farm for automated testing with a variety of available testing frameworks. You can also use it for manual testing through a remote session.

In this talk, we will learn how easy and powerful it is to integrate AWS Device Farm into your automated build pipeline on Jenkins which enables you to test your mobile applications on more devices, producing a better quality mobile app.

The Game of DevOps: Applying Jenkins Best Practices in a Dynamic Industry
This session will describe how some companies used automated Jenkins’ best practices to remove anti-patterns, avoid known issues, have a healthy and stable Jenkins ecosystem.

The challenge to deliver a heterogeneous and distributed Jenkins ecosystem around the world with a massive number of Jenkins users is great. It becomes even greater when the portfolio of tasks within Jenkins encompasses not just continuous integration, but a number of other automation tasks as well (for example, batch tasks to run DWH processes, end-to-end system tests, administrative tasks). However, defining a set of Jenkins best practices will help teams to reduce their potential issues and get the benefits from others, even when those teams are coming from different backgrounds (such as development, QA, DWH, artists and sysadmins).

The best way to move away from those anti-patterns is by automating and giving visibility when detecting unhealthy jobs, which might kill the Jenkins ecosystem. During this presentation, we will share our journey of ensuring we apply Jenkins best practices, automation and evangelization. This has led to success in an environment that fosters freedom and collaboration, making continuous integration/automation fast, reliable, maintainable and scalable. You will hear about our problem, what we did to tackle it, what we learned and what we foresee for the future.

Mapping Your DevOps Journey with the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model
In this talk, we will map the enterprise DevOps journey to the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model. We will discuss the characteristics of organizations within each quadrant. We will present practical process, tools and leadership strategies for crossing the chasm from an organization's current quadrant to the next level of maturity.

Based on experience guiding large organizations in implementing CI, CD and, ultimately, DevOps at scale we have identified four maturity levels. These levels examine culture, process and tools to assess where an organization currently sits in their DevOps journey and that form the basis for growing and extending DevOps in the enterprise. Most organizations on the journey to DevOps map to one (or more) of these four areas.  

The quadrants are:
Quadrant #1: Team-Level Agile Upstream
Quadrant #2: Team-Level Continuous Delivery
Quadrant #3: Enterprise Agile Upstream 
Quadrant #4: Enterprise DevOps

By attending this session the audience will:
* Gain a new, simplified framework for quantifying and communicating their organization's DevOps maturity
* Learn practical best practices and strategies, based on real-world experiences in enabling DevOps in the enterprise [as appropriate]
* See examples of tools and technologies like Jenkins Pipeline and CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise that are enabling organizations to move more quickly across the DevOps Quadrant Maturity Model

Achieving Mass Sharing and Reuse with Jenkins

Working in an organization of nearly 400,000 people, not to mention living in a world packed with open source, the potential gain that comes from sharing code and automation practices is something I consider to be both amazing and generally unrealized. I lead a shared services at Accenture for North America and globally we have hundreds of Jenkins pipelines deploying to thousands of environments, with possibly tens of thousands of Jenkins build, test and deployment automation jobs. Sharing and re-use of code, testing, processes and technique has always been a key theme and Jenkins has been central to our approach. The DevOps Platform (https://accenture.github.io/adop-docker-compose/) has been our way to package this up. We open sourced it a year ago to extend the sharing of it, globally. It enables us to package up all of our Jenkins jobs and automation and open them up for mass sharing and collaboration (spanning open source, CloudBees and Jenkins). The result is that we start to innovate and learn even faster, collectively, achieving great things at scale.

Jumping on the Continuous Delivery Bandwagon: From 100+ FreeStyle Jobs to Pipeline(s) - Tactics, Pitfalls & Woes
Last year our company’s internal Jenkins instance had become overwhelmed, as we had grown dramatically over the last few years. It contained jobs from all our teams and departments, we had too many administrators, we wanted to improve change control practice and the plugin upgrade process since the latter could affect more people than just the team upgrading a plugin. This was all a result of the rapid business growth at CloudBees. The tipping point came when we wanted to do even more testing of our products which now led to long queue times for simple jobs.

So the decision was made to move off this single instance to a new cluster,where each team could have its own master and, using Docker, gain greater control over its build environment.

Rather than migrating what we had, we took the opportunity to change and improve our teams’ setup and dogfood many of the shiny new features that were in development at the time. Taking the approximately 150 jobs and replacing them with declarative pipelines configured automatically from GitHub using custom marker files (a proprietary feature) we now no longer have to create jobs for new plugins. This process is now performed automatically. We even have a way for an individual plugin to replace the default pipeline - all controlled via the SCM.

However things were not clear sailing: Dogfooding caused us to find issues, wanting to accelerate sometimes pushed us to simply reconsider some of our existing processes instead of automating them.

Having a way to share a single pipeline across projects is great, but it also obviously raises the criticality of it. Initially, we were sometimes breaking all our jobs because we had to manually test the default pipeline when changing it and it was possible to miss a mistake. Due to these complexities, we had to work out how to test that "default pipeline," as well as devise a workable strategy that would enable us to reach our end goal of continuous delivery.

This presentation will share our experiences and techniques for dealing with a similar migration.

The Ten Commandments Of Continuous Delivery

Everyone wants to implement continuous delivery. After all, the benefits are too big to be ignored. You can:

  • Increase the speed of delivery

  • Increase software quality

  • Decrease costs

  • Free people to dedicate time to activities that return value


Those improvements are like music to any decision maker’s ear. Especially if that person has a business background. If a tech geek can articulate the benefits continuous delivery brings to the table, when he asks a business representative for a budget, the response is almost always “Yes! Do it.”

Then a continuous delivery project will start. Tests will be written. Builds will be scripted. Deployments will be automated. Everything will be tied into an automated pipeline and triggered on every commit. Everyone will enter a state of nirvana as soon as all that is done. There will be a huge inauguration party with a vice president having the honor to be the first one to press the button that will deploy the first release to production. Isn’t that a glorious plan everyone should be proud of?

The project starts and, shortly afterward, you hit the first obstacle. But, since you are brave and do not give up that easily, you pass it. Then, not long afterward, another obstacle comes along. And another one after that. And on and on it goes. Half a year later you feel that you are not getting far. You spent your budget. You need to show results even though you cannot see the light at the end of the tunnel. The CTO demands results. The business wants value for the investment. You decide to do the only sensible thing and declare that the project is finished. You are continuous delivery certified even though there is nothing continuous nor are you delivering. Continuous delivery joins other failed projects that are declared a big success. Not only that, you are doing agile but you also practice CD. Veni, vidi, vici. You joined the club of glorified failures. Well done!

Why did your attempt to implement continuous delivery fail? There cannot be one answer that fits all scenarios. However, some prerequisites and steps should be taken in almost all cases. The chances are that you missed some, if not all, of the commandments that we’ll explore in this session.

Using Jenkins Pipeline to Simplify the Implementation of a DevOps Strategy Across the Enterprise

Unfortunately, with rapid growth comes the pain of integration and adoption of legacy technologies. Under new leadership, ESI has committed to a technology transformation, starting with a move from waterfall to Agile. In order to achieve this transformation, we have had to revamp our development, operations and release processes to make them more efficient, reliable and scalable.

At last count, ESI was using 37 different programming languages spread across mainframe, many flavors of linux, Windows and cloud hosts. We had to find a way to take inventory and apply controls, while making the process faster and more efficient to support our Agile transformation. To do this, we used Jenkins Pipeline (specifically, global libraries) to centralize our implementation, provide the hooks into our other supporting applications and providing a fast and reliable path to production.

Some of the integrations we’ve hooked into our pipeline library and flow include:

  • Github (for multi-branch pipeline jobs and knowing what we’re releasing)

  • Jira / HipChat / Confluence (for collaboration)

  • XL Release (to eliminate Sharepoint and spreadsheets for release management)

  • Artifactory (not only as a binary repo, but to proxy external resources previously unavailable to our teams)

  • Ansible (to automate deployments)

  • Sauce Labs (for test automation)

  • Graphite (you can’t get better if you don’t measure yourself)


Our pipeline is flexible enough to support many different technologies and workflows, but also provides a quick path to adoption. It requires just four lines of a jenkinsfile for the basic functionality that provides all of the hooks. This enables development teams to concentrate on development without having to spend time learning new tools. We’re now automating deployments, running tests (both at check-in and post-deployment) and are on our way not only to our first continuous integration practices, but to true continuous delivery. I will present the overall DevOps strategies we are pushing across the organization to bring us together and support our technology movement.

Leading Transformations in Financial Services

Change initiatives are challenging in any established company, but they are even more challenging to start in highly regulated industries. There are constant concerns around compliance and security. It’s very important to alleviate these concerns early and often. This was one component of my strategy.

It’s also important to build shared experiences with the leadership of your company, but how do you do this as a low-level DevOps engineer? It takes time and a lot of effort. It also takes a manager who sees the bigger picture. I’ll describe my journey in organizing the company around my vision, from the hatching of the vision with a core team to expanding and solidifying that vision with executive sponsorship.

I’ve learned a lot from this process, and want to help others with my learnings. I’ve pulled out some valuable concepts and principles to focus on, so the talk will be somewhat opinionated, but still encourage ideation in the audience. The audience will walk away with ideas to start their own change initiatives, no matter how big or small.

A Robot Messaged me that my Build Failed! And Other Stories from the Future

One of the most basic goals that DevOps and Agile try to achieve is better communication. How do we build tools + processes where everybody is kept in the loop.

At GitHub, our hardest working “employee” is Hubot, the open source chat bot. Hubot sits in your company's chat client and drives everything: graphing, monitoring, provisioning, tweeting and even telling some jokes. All of this has enhanced our culture of remote work. Internally we have integrated Hubot with Jenkins in order to drive our CI/CD pipeline.

In this session you will learn:

* How GitHubbers use Hubot to drive culture in a remote-first workforce

* How we use chatops to deploy and interact with GitHub via Hubot

* How we integrated Hubot with Jenkins for our CI/CD needs.

DevSecOps, It’s Not You, It’s Not Me, It’s We

Over the last few years we have seen the rise of a powerful new community rooted in two areas with historically different backgrounds. DevSecOps has taken hold in both the cybersecurity community, as well as in the world of Dev and Ops. But what is really driving the growth here? While tools are important, as in most things DevOps, it comes down to culture. Instilling a culture of “security is everyone’s responsibility”, is the key to a successful DevSecOps program. While this may sound simple, changing cultures is never as easy as it sounds. In DevSecOps, we are dealing with long standing customs and ingrained behaviors that sometimes work against our success.

How do we convince the security team that they are not the only ones who care about security. That giving up a little control in order to automate more, go faster will allow us to be more secure. How do we show the developers, the DevOps team, QA and others that security is not just the job of the security team, but it is their job and responsibility too? Continuous Delivery, must also include continuous security.

Case studies show us that if we can have everyone adopt this mindset, we can do more, faster and more secure! Join us in the panel discussion where we will talk about how to instill this culture in your own organization. Tips that will allow you to be successful with DevSecOps, as well as some discussion of tools that can help. If developing secure code and maintaining secure apps is important to you, don’t miss this session!

Codifying the Build and Release Process with a Jenkins Pipeline Shared Library
Have you ever been asked to migrate old legacy applications/servers/code to a new datacenter? Have you ever had issues figuring out how to replicate the old environment in the new one?

This war story is about our migration from a Jenkins 1.x instance in an old legacy environment that was being decommissioned, into a brand new Jenkins 2.x instance in a new datacenter. We were given a 60-day window to complete the migration of all 150+ Freestyle jobs from the old Jenkins implementation to the new one.

While copying the XML job configuration file from the old server and moving it to the new one would be easy, replicating the hand-built monolithic build servers is difficult. Building and reusing template jobs would be a secondary option, but this would lead to technical debt in the future. Finally, developers were not enthused about constantly replicating basic global configuration changes such as email addresses between jobs.

The DevOps team quickly identified similarities across all jobs and sought to DRY up the code by building a shared library to abstract Jenkins Pipeline configuration and cover a vast majority of jobs. This made global changes much easier and we were able to pare down Jenkinsfiles to less than 10 lines of configuration parameters using wrappers. This saved hours of developers’ time learning Pipeline syntax and Groovy. To address the monolithic build servers, we created Dockerfiles in each app repository with the exact dependencies needed to build that particular app. Now, each repository has a Jenkinsfile that describes how to build, test and release the app, and a Dockerfile along with a Docker Compose file, that builds the environment in which the pipeline runs. This gives us confidence that future Jenkins migrations would be less cumbersome – as long as there was access to GitHub, agents where Docker containers could run and network connectivity to Artifactory where we store RPMs, all the jobs could be picked up and moved over with minimal effort.

There were many resources out already in the Jenkins community about these efforts such as: 
- https://www.cloudbees.com/blog/need-jenkins-pipeline 
and-
https://github.com/jenkinsci/simple-build-for-pipeline-plugin/ 
...but there was no case study about the successes and failures nor tricks and tips of how to implement this. We may not have done it the right way nor the most efficient way, but by sharing my story at FireEye, I hope to give others a valuable starting point they can cherry-pick ideas from.

This talk concludes with lessons learned of why we were successful, opinions of other Jenkins tools we tried such as Jenkins Job Builder and raw, scripted Pipeline, deployments with Fabric, and our plans to move to Declarative Pipeline in the future.

Native Code Pipelines: IoT joins the DevOps Revolution

Lots of cool things are developing with IoT best practices, but the fact that so many embedded devices require native code binaries complicates many things that are taken for granted in modern DevOps.  While, yes, Jenkins has been doing CI for C/C++ for years, it doesn’t have the flexibility and power that may be available in other languages.

However, modern tooling is emerging for C/C++, such as proper dependency managers like the FOSS Conan project for native code (primarily C/C++) binaries.  With this development and Jenkins pipelines we can reimagine DevOps in an IoT/Native world.

In this talk we will demonstrate breaking up a C++ application into several binary dependencies as is a best practice in other modern languages, both from OSS and internal and a set of Jenkins pipelines to maintain them and build out the application from individual independent binaries to a final application ready to be distributed to consumer end points delivered as docker containers or natively.

Zero to Jenkins: Tips & Tricks for Using Jenkins in AWS
Jenkins has become the backbone of our environment, controlling all of our CI/CD processes. This talk will present tips & tricks that we learned as we moved to a fully automated AWS environment. We have tightly integrated Jenkins into our environment, increasing DevOps and developer productivity and enhancing platform security. We will share solutions for the following six challenges:

* Automated agent creation - Our QA team can update Docker agents, deploy them and control them all from our central Jenkins server. QA's ability to iterate quickly has increased.

* Shared Groovy libraries - We run >40 Jenkins jobs with similar functionality. We now easily push out updates across the whole environment via a shared Groovy scripts library inside our Jenkinsfiles. Updates are easy.

* Hybrid Jenkins files - We had to leverage other languages inside of Jenkins for API integrations. We set up logging to capture information inside Jenkins, parameterize and leverage Jenkins job options.

* Jenkins & AWS IAM - We leveraged AWS best practices for security with Jenkins, while ensuring we use the lowest level of privileges needed.

* Multibranch Pipelines - Our repository branches are required to match the deployed code. To simplify this, we leverage Multibranch Pipelines within an easy-to-understand method.

* Pipelines - We will show how much easier life is with Jenkins Pipeline.

Jenkins provides a powerful platform for CI/CD. Overcoming these few issues allowed us to unlock even more value from it.

The State of Automated Testing

As development paradigms shift to meet the demand of the consumer, so must testing practices. But how can one keep up with these changes and see into the future of test automation? Join Titus Fortner, solutions architect at Sauce Labs, as he shares how priorities and technologies change as testing evolves, and organizations mature and adopt CD (and other modern paradigms/principles). Drawing from his own experiences, he will start from a strategy perspective and demonstrate how to automate manual processes and bottlenecks. That will be followed by a demonstration of how to isolate problems early by shifting your testing left, once the proper automated testing framework and coverage is in place. Titus will conclude the presentation with a discussion around remediation as the next wave of automated testing. Implementing this as the next step after isolation can drastically reduce time spent on debugging, thus increasing developer efficiency. This session will leave you with a better understanding of current best practices in automated testing, as well as a view into the future of new technologies to help teams deliver better software, faster.

Pipelines At Scale: How Big, How Fast, How Many?
How many Jenkins pipelines can I run at once? What limits the speed and scale? How can I make my pipelines run faster?

To answer these questions and more, I’ll draw on a mix of large-scale user cases, testing environments, theory and micro-benchmarks.

This talk will bring together several areas of interest to users trying to run very large Jenkins instances with Jenkins Pipeline…or very small, resource-constrained instances!

Topics for discussion:
- Resource use: memory, storage I/O and CPU use
- Specific bottlenecks: code vs. framework vs. data persistence
- Hardware demands and systems tuning
- What makes things faster?

To answer these speed and scalability questions, we will draw from four different sets of data:
- Field observations assisting with some of the largest-scale Pipeline users
- Data collected from a pipeline scalability lab environment
- Programming work on pipeline internals, to cover theory and implementations
- Microbenchmarks of use-cases and specific implementation components.

Understanding these concepts will help you estimate resource needs for instances AND reduce them.

Simplify your Jenkins Projects with Docker Multi-Stage Builds

When building Docker images we often use multiple build steps and Dockerfiles to keep the image size down.  Using multi-stage Docker builds we can eliminate this complexity, bringing all of the instructions back into a singe Dockerfule while sill keeping those images nice and small.

One of the most challenging things about building images is keeping the image size down. Each instruction in the Dockerfile adds a layer to the image, and you need to remember to clean up any artifacts you don’t need before moving on to the next layer. To write a really efficient Dockerfile, you have traditionally needed to employ shell tricks and other logic to keep the layers as small as possible and to ensure that each layer has the artifacts it needs from the previous layer and nothing else.  It was actually very common to have multiple Jenkins pipeline steps and/or projects with unique Dockerfiles for different elements of the final build.  Maintaining multiple sets of instructions to build your image is complicated and hard to maintain.

With multi-stage builds, you use multiple FROM statements in your Dockerfile. Each FROM instruction can use a different base, and each of them begins a new stage of the build. You can selectively copy artifacts from one stage to another, leaving behind everything you don’t want in the final image and simplifying the both the Dockerfile and Jenkins configurations needed to produce your images.

JenkinsPipelineUnit: Test your Continuous Delivery Pipeline
How to make sure that changes you are pushing to your pipeline code won’t break it? We migrated our entire delivery infrastructure to Jenkins and along the way, wrote a framework for unit testing pipelines. We are enjoying continuously improving our pipelines and we want to share our joy!

At LesFurets.com, we use Jenkins as our workhorse to automate our continuous delivery pipeline. Each day we test more than 30 parallel developments and deliver only those which are ready for production. From validation to deployment, every step of the pipeline is coded using Jenkins Pipeline DSL and checked into our code base. Although coding pipelines using this DSL is very powerful, pipeline scripts can easily get pretty complex. That’s why we developed a testing framework, which lets you write unit tests on the configuration and conditional logic of the pipeline code. The framework mocks built-in Jenkins commands and job configurations, executing pipeline scripts in a simulated environment. It allows to debug job executions and even track regressions between changes. In this presentation we present our extensive usage of Jenkins, our open source testing framework and best practices we learned during our migration to the pipeline DSL.

Building Alexa Skills with Jenkins

If you've ever developed for the Amazon Alexa platform, you probably have experienced that updating a skill requires a great deal of manual steps. To improve skill development, we've built and open-sourced the Alexia library for NodeJS (https://github.com/Accenture/alexia). This allows us to develop skills that can be managed by a SDLC pipeline, improving consistency and quality of updates to skills. We will demonstrate how simple it can be to update a live skill using the Alexia library.

Baking in Quality: Cultural Transformation at Scale

How does CloudBees deliver software continuously, with high quality? This is the story of how we changed from thinking of quality in the last phases of the SDLC, to having quality baked into our products from the design phase. It's also about our journey from releasing twice a year to releasing on a monthly basis through the power of CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise. Finally, how through all of this we have improved the quality of our products. Prevention vs detection is the key to our success. 

We will touch base on some CloudBees best practices such as:

  • Testing kick-off and quality bars: Acceptance criteria, test automation, exploratory testing, non-functional testing (usability, performance, security), dependencies and integrations. Quality is much more than just testing.
  • Test automation at CloudBees: What are the tests that run on a plugin/core change basis before we merge our changes?
  • Delivery process: How CloudBees leverages the power of CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise to cope with the new, faster release pace and portfolio growth, as well as our release process, including staging and promotion.
  • Rollout plan: Dogfooding at CloudBees, feature flags, experimental update centers. We are customer-centric and we want to make sure that if an issue arises, we impact the least number of customers possible.
  • Metrics: In order to know if you are getting better over time, you need to constantly measure quality. We will show what and how we measure.

Solving for Segregation/Separation of Duties in a Continuous Delivery Pipeline

Segregation/separation of duties is a controversial topic in organizations that have dwelled on a legacy hierarchy long enough to confuse separation of duties with separation of departments. These organizations experience severe delays in implementations of Continuous Delivery Pipelines since Pipelines tend to relentlessly gnaw through departments and silos, and rightfully so, and can be seen as posing risk to the business and our customers.

This talk explains the intricacies (what) of Segregation of Duties and why it is critical for governance. Continuous Delivery Pipelines improve speed, quality, and predictability of our product releases and are critical for sustainability. So, trading one for the other is not an option. This session dives into the design aspects of how to model Pipelines to honor Segregation of Duties, while still releasing quality products frequently and predictably to Production.
