Sessions and Speakers
Keynotes will be delivered by three industry experts: Sacha Labourey, CEO at CloudBees; Kohsuke Kawaguchi, CTO at CloudBees and Jenkins creator; and Jez Humble, CTO at DevOps Research and Assessment LLC and co-author of Continuous Delivery. They will each highlight a different aspect of the DevOps transformation that is occurring throughout the IT industry this year, as well as how pervasive both the Jenkins community and CloudBees are in enabling the DevOps transformation.
At the main conference, there will be 60+ sessions covering a variety of Continuous Delivery and DevOps topics. Sessions range from discussions amongst industry experts such as the DevOps Leadership Panel, to sessions about specific technologies, such as Azure DevOps Open Source Integrations, to a deep dive into an individual company’s DevOps journey, such as Express Script’s path to DevOps. There will be speakers from many different industries including folks from SAP, Capital One, PayPal, Microsoft, Rosetta Stone, and Care.com. This diversity of topics and companies represented will provide Jenkins World attendees with knowledge about how DevOps and CD are being used across different industries.
Training, Workshops, and Jenkins Certification
The first two days of the conference week (August 28 – 29) will consist of a number of training and workshop sessions. Jenkins Certification Training will prepare attendees for the Certified Jenkins Engineer (CJE) or Certified CloudBees Jenkins Engineer (CCJE) exam. Other trainings include DevOps Leader Certification Training, DevOps Test Engineering Certification Training, and Managing Jenkins with CloudBees Jenkins Team Training.
There are a number of workshops covering wide-ranging topics such as pipeline automation, plugin development, the fundamentals of Jenkins Pipeline and Docker, load testing, the new Blue Ocean UX for Jenkins, and more.
