CloudBees will take the essential features from the open-source code with a monthly release cadence. This initial release supports GKE, pipelines, vault integration, and preview environments; additional features like DevPods will come in a future version.

  • Athena: Automated Build Health Monitoring at Dropbox Engineering

    Dropbox’s engineering team runs ~35,000 builds and millions of automated tests, many of which can fail either due to bad commits or due to environmental conditions. The team created a build monitoring system to minimize the manual intervention necessary to detect and quarantine flaky tests, and notify code authors.

  • Five Initiatives to Modernize Jenkins and Kill the "Jenkinsteins"

    Kohsuke Kawaguchi, creator of Jenkins and CTO at CloudBees, spoke last month at Jenkins World in Nice about five on-going initiatives to modernize the popular CI/CD tool. The initiatives revolve around Jenkins Evergreen, Jenkins Pipeline (Blue Ocean), Jenkins Configuration-as-Code, Jenkins X, and Cloud-Native Jenkins.

    Mesa CI is a continuous integration system at Intel for running builds and compliance test suites for the Mesa graphics library. It runs across more than 200 systems and runs tens of millions of tests per day.

  • Jenkins to Focus Efforts on Stability, Ease of Use and Cloud Native Compatibility

    The Jenkins project team has decided to split its efforts between focusing on stability issues and on better support for running on platforms like Kubernetes. The former, which will potentially have backward-incompatible changes, will impact the release model and provide a more pre-configured installation, whereas the latter will work on similar lines as the existing Jenkins X project.

  • DevSecOps Grows Up and Finds Itself a Community

    On June 28th, the first DevSecOps Days event came to London following a similar event in San Francisco in April. It kicked off with a welcome address from event founders, Mark Miller and John Willis, who explained that the intention is to replicate the DevOpsDays model and empower communities worldwide to stand up their own events.

  • CloudBees Release "Jenkins X", a CI/CD Solution for Modern Cloud Applications Deployed to Kubernetes

    James Strachan and the CloudBees team have released the open source “Jenkins X” platform as a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) solution for modern cloud applications that will be deployed onto Kubernetes. Strachan is sponsoring JEP 400, a formal proposal to act as a “stake on the ground”. The proposal requests that Jenkins X become a sub-project in the Jenkins Foundation.

  • DevOps Workbench Launched by ZeroStack

  • Continuous Deployment at Instagram

    Instagram's continuous deployment pipeline lets them push code faster to production, identify bad commits easily and always be release ready. Put together in an iterative manner over a period of time, the key principles behind it include a high quality test suite, quick identification of bad commits, visibility at each stage to improve buy-in from stakeholders and a working rollback plan.

  • Jenkins 2.0 Beta Available, Adds New Pipeline Build System

    Jenkins 2.0 beta is now available which includes a new Pipeline build delivery system using a DSL built on Groovy. That feature and a new user setup process aims to give users most of what the need out of the box.

  • Google Create Kubernetes-based VM/Docker Image Building Framework

    Google have created a Kubernetes-based open source reference implementation that automates the building of custom Google Compute Engine VM images with Jenkins and Packer. The primary goal of this work is to demonstrate how to add image creation into a build pipeline for continuous delivery, and produce artifacts that may provide increased reliability and reduced speed of VM initialisation.
