Is the concept of adopting a continuous everything model a daunting task for your fast moving business? Read this whitepaper to break down and understand one of the key pillars of this model in Continuous Governance: The Guardrails for Continuous Everything.

Unlike the previous episodes 2 and 3 where I was working on a Jenkins plugin, this episode is concentrating more on how we can use Jenkins more effectively.

When we only have a few repositories to deal with, it is reasonable to allow each repository to have its own build process. The Apache Maven project has many repositories to manage, so we need an easier way to share common configuration between repositories. In this episode, I discuss how we can achieve that. The next episode will be about making the shared configuration more flexible and also (and important goal for the Apache Software Foundation, but perhaps not for everyone else) how we can make the shared configuration reusable by others.

Are you looking for greater insight into your software development value stream? Check out this whitepaper: DevOps Performance: The Importance of Measuring Throughput and Stability to see how CloudBees DevOptics can give you the visibility to improve your continuous delivery process.
