JUC West is coming up in exactly a week, and I’ll be there covering the conference, including keynotes from Kohsuke Kawaguchi and Gene Kim (after the great interviews I’ve had with both, I’m very excited). Of course, since there have been 3 other JUC conferences this year, there were plenty of great sessions that a lot of us couldn't attend. So I’ve compiled a list of some of CloudBees’ best posts from their JUC session blog series.
- "A Reproducible Build Environment with Jenkins" - Robert Fach
- In this talk, Robert Fach introduces the basics of binary build reproducibility, its challenges, and how his company, TechniSat, has gone about achieving it.
- “From DevOps to NoOps” - Mario Cruz
- "NoOps" doesn't mean no operations team. Mario focuses on automating manual processes and how his company, Choose Digital, uses Dev@Cloud and AWS to do so. Automation is becoming a bigger and bigger deal in the industry, so any information out there will help all of us.
- “Evolving the Jenkins UI” - Gus Reiber and Tom Fennelly
- This is a great idea for a presentation at a user conference. Gus and Tom tore apart the Jenkins UI, exposed it's limitations, and explored how CloudBees was working with the community to address their concerns. How great is that level of teamwork?
- “How to Optimize Automated Testing with Everyone’s Favorite Butler” - Andrew Phillips
- Friend of DZone Andrew Phillips (who will be at JUC West also) focused on the challenges surrounding test automation, as well as some solutions and best practices using Jenkins.
- “Jenkins Workflows with Parallel Steps Boosts Productivity and Quality” - Tom Canova
- In my interview with CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey, he specifically mentioned how excited he was by the workflow plugin. Tom Canova explores how parallelism works with the plugin, as well as his development process.
All of these links have links to the slides, abstracts, and in some cases, video! I hope to see some of you at JUC West! I'll be the awkward tall guy in the DZone shirt.
