Jenkins is widely known in the DevOps world as the leading open source automation server for continuous integration and continuous delivery. Jenkins enables developers to find and solve defects in a code base rapidly and to automate testing of their builds.

Adoption of Jenkins is widespread, with more than 147,000 active installations and over 1 million users around the world. Jenkins is interconnected with well over 1,000 plugins that allow Jenkins to integrate with most development, testing, and deployment tools.

For people who are just getting started with Jenkins—and even experienced users who want to look at it from a big picture perspective—it helps to have one source to find the best websites, blog posts, videos, and tutorials that cover Jenkins and best usage practices.

With that in mind, here is a list of many of the best resources for learning about Jenkins.

 Websites

  1. Jenkins Website - The official Jenkins website, including links to the Jenkins community, events, a blog, documentation, changelog, and more.
  2. Jenkins Plugins - The full list.
  3. The Jenkins Wiki Page - Includes features, installation instructions, introductory articles, and more.
  4. The Jenkins GitHub Page - Here you can contribute to Jenkins yourselves, but you may want to first read the ‘Beginner's Guide to Contributing’.
  5. The Stack Overflow FAQ Page on Jenkins - There are 1,339 frequent questions tagged, so I think you’ll find the answers to the most common questions.
  6. CloudBees - CloudBees is closely connected with Jenkins, as it provides a platform to run Jenkins as a CI/CD tool either on-premise or in the cloud. That, combined with the fact that the Jenkins project founder and lead developer Kohsuke Kawaguchi is CTO and several leading Jenkins contributors work for the company, result in CloudBees not only being a central advocate for Jenkins usage, but also provide excellent resources on how to get the most value. Their resources include:
    1. A comprehensive About Jenkins page with a lot of useful information.
    2. The Jenkins World Conference, the leading Jenkins user event in the world.
    3. A Helpful Blog
    4. A webinar recordings page
