Jenkins is the most popular and leading open-source automation server for continuous integration and continuous delivery because of its flexibility due to which you can easily use to automate all the steps in your software delivery process on any platform.
This comprehensive 3-in-1 course is designed to give you the ins and out of continuous integration and continuous delivery, and implementing them with Jenkins. It will show you how to set up your CI environment, by installing and configuring Jenkins master/nodes, introducing the main parts of the tool, and effectively configuring Jenkins projects to build and test software applications. You will work on improving the quality of your delivery process by implementing an acceptance stage in workflows. You will explore how automation works for database scripts by adding a new stage to your pipeline for database migration. You will move towards improving the quality of your software development workflow by integrating Jenkins with GitHub to automatically build pull requests.
This training program includes 3 complete courses, carefully chosen to give you the most comprehensive training possible.
The first course, Effective Jenkins: Getting Started with Continuous Integration, covers key concepts of continuous integration, as well continuous deployment. You will understand the main parts of Jenkins and create different types of Jenkins projects to automate everything that you want. You will finish the first course by looking at a Java web project and creating the necessary steps to build and test it, thereby empowering you to implement it in a real project.
The second course, Effective Jenkins: Continuous Delivery with Jenkins Pipeline, covers key concepts of DevOps and delve into Jenkins Pipeline, a set of plugins that provides a toolkit for designing simple-to-complex delivery pipelines as code. To design a production-ready delivery pipeline, you will start by creating a simple pipeline and understanding Jenkins Pipeline terms and its particularities. Next, you will set up Docker to create isolated build environments. To consolidate your learning, you will create a delivery pipeline to build, test, and deploy a Java web project.
In the third course, Effective Jenkins: Improving Quality in the Delivery Pipeline with Jenkins, you will improve the quality in your delivery process by implementing an acceptance stage in workflows wherein you will learn different test types and add automated API and UI tests to the pipeline. You will then understand how to automate the execution of database scripts and add a new stage to your pipeline to manage database migrations. You will also learn about branching strategies and how to implement continuous feedback on every feature branch using Jenkins multi-branch. Finally, you will improve the quality of your software development workflows and learn how to integrate Jenkins with GitHub to automatically build pull requests.
By the end of this Learning Path, you’ll be thoroughly equipped with the concepts of Jenkins and will be able to configure Jenkins effectively to build, test, and deploy your software.
