Jenkins X: Continuous Delivery for Kubernetes


The last 5 years has seen a huge change in how we build, package, run and manage software with the rise of Kubernetes, Cloud Native, Microservices and Continuous Delivery. As a result we all need to get better at delivering business value to our customers faster and continuously with a cloud native strategy - but how?

This talk will introduce you to a new open source project, Jenkins X which is an open source CI / CD platform for Kubernetes based on Jenkins.

After a couple of slides we'll spend most of talk demonstrating how to get stuff done with Jenkins X:

  • easily setup your own Jenkins based CI / CD system on your cloud of choice
  • quickly get started developing new microservices with automated CI / CD
  • import existing projects with automated CI / CD
  • use Pull Requests to trigger CI, Preview Environments, human approval then a full CD release
  • use automated provisioning to testing, staging, ephemeral and production environments via helm charts and GitOps

After this talk you should be able to develop at full speed with CI / CD in a cloud native way in any language on any cloud or kubernetes cluster! Lets all go faster!
