In past few years, agile software development has seen tremendous growth. There is a huge demand for software delivery solutions that are fast yet flexible to numerous amendments. As a result, Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) methodologies are gaining popularity.
This book starts off by explaining the concepts of CI and its significance in the Agile world with a whole chapter dedicated to it. Next, you’ll learn to configure and set up Jenkins in many favourite ways. The way the world sees CI/CD is changing, and so is Jenkins. The book exploits the concept of “pipeline as code” and various other features introduced in the Jenkins 2.x release to its full potential.
We also talk in detail about the new Jenkins Blue Ocean interface and its features to quickly and easily create a CI pipeline. You’ll gain a foothold in implementing CI and CD methods. Then we dive into the various features offered by Jenkins one by one, exploiting them for CI and CD. Jenkins’ core functionality and flexibility allows it to fit in a variety of environments and can help streamline the development process for all stakeholders. Next, you’ll be introduced to CD and will learn to achieve it using Jenkins.
Through this book’s wealth of best practices and real-world tips, you’ll discover how easy it is to implement CI and CD using Jenkins.
