Description

Take a Sneak Peek into Jenkins DSLs with the Mini Course: Optimizing Jenkins Deployments with DSLs!

Software companies are constantly innovating development strategies to bring new products and services to the market quickly and more efficiently. They look for consistent solutions to increase stability, quality, and profits. With DevOps and its Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery principles, companies have witnessed exponential business and technological growth. Most progressive startups and mature companies routinely implement the CI-CD principles in their automated software build pipelines. This ensures that their code is cleaner, deployments are faster, and delivery is reliable. As a result, business growth is guaranteed.

Software enterprises that implement the CI CD strategy in their regular development lifecycle, gain higher profits and an edge over others. They are able to display their scale of innovation and growth in the field of technology.

Which tool underlines the significance of continuous integration and delivery in software development? Jenkins!

Just look at these amazing numbers:

  • According to a new research by TechBeacon, 2018, there is a strong demand for DevOps professionals as a growing number of organisations are implementing the development model in their organisations.

  • According to recent data from jobs site Glassdoor , the national median salary for a DevOps engineer in the US is $110,000

  • 60% of hiring managers are looking to fill DevOps engineer positions, according to the 2017 Open Source Jobs Report, a study conducted by The Linux Foundation and tech jobs site Dice. 

  • 42% of companies responding to the Open Source Jobs study want to add DevOps skills across their hiring portfolio

Using Jenkins, you can simplify sophisticated software processes through automated builds and test executions. You receive immediate feedback on the automation processes on Jenkins. This approach efficiently reduces turnaround time for code repair and deployment!

With the rising demands of the digital market for on-the-go software deployment, Jenkins makes your lives easier by taking up the responsibility of automation.  You are free to focus on other criticalities of the development process.

Jenkins is the ultimate platform for implementing the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery principles. You can use Jenkins as an automation hub to run and monitor the continuous integration and delivery phases of your project with ease! Since the builds are automated, the source code is continuously integrated with the latest version for deployment. With the entire process automated, human intervention is minimal, risks are low, and the product is delivered on time!

That’s why we focus on building up your understanding of the inner working of the Jenkins  for infinitely better results down the line.

Real-world knowledge – We work with real startups and real projects every day. We know first hand the problems engineers and architects face on daily basis. All this real-world experience is passed on to you in the courses. Each module comprises of in-depth demos and walk-throughs, meaning you’ll garner enough skill to build your own container application adaptable to any environment, rather than just passing a glorified memory “test and forget” like most other courses.

Can you imagine when Benjamin Franklin discovered electricity and people around him ignored it as an irrelevant phenomenon - how much the world will be missing out on? Same thing goes for tech – you would have been puzzled by the need for a “Smartphone” ten years ago, yet now we can’t imagine our lives without one. The true potential only becomes apparent in time, do you want to risk missing out?

Is it too difficult for me to understand? - Not at all. We’ll take you step by step from a novice level to an expert on Jenkins. We work as technology leaders and mentors to several engineers every day. We know how to explain things and use the lingo. We just choose to teach in ways that are a lot more fun (and less headache-inducing). By the end of this course, you’ll be able to job scheduling and much more with Jenkins in your project and achieve amazing results.

I am not an engineer, will this course still benefit me? - Whether you are a startup founder, a product manager or a project manager - it is quite likely that your organization is already using or will be using these technologies. Going through these courses will give you a deeper understanding about how your engineering team is using all the new technologies. You will be able to discuss the pros and cons of their technical approach with higher confidence. 

Is your IT career on the right track?

Well, if you invest your time and bring an eagerness to learn, we guarantee you real, actionable education at a fraction of the cost you can demand as an IT engineer or consultant. We are confident your investment will come back to you in no time.

I grew up in a small town in India. A friendly child, my home was troubled. I withdrew into my shell, becoming aloof and angry. At age 15, I started working in a factory where I labored 12 hours/day with only $2 as a daily salary.


LAST CHANCE BLOWN

Reading business magazines in the factory corner, a dream was born. Could I improve my life? Feeling certain I was destined for freedom, for a 15-year old - it seemed like a pipe dream. Education was the only way out. My friends left for college, but I couldn’t afford to pay. Had I blown my last chance?


A YEAR’S SALARY

In 1995, a new computer institute threw its doors open in our town. Tuition was greater than a year’s salary, but I scraped together funds for the first class where I found my passion: programming. I met my wife there and we fell madly in love. Our marriage was disapproved of! Ultimately I had to run away from home with only a suitcase full of clothes. After our marriage, we traveled to Canada and started a new life.


THE NEW LIFE

I had no contacts or resources, but I was determined to improve my life. I realized education and the right training was the only way for me to achieve my goals.

Somehow I managed to acquire modest education.

From there I went on to become a technical leader and CTO in multiple startups.

All this happened because of education and training. So I am very passionate about learning and sharing knowledge.


I favor pragmatic solutions over complex ones.

I favor scrappiness over lavishness.

I favor fast execution over endless deliberation.

I favor serving the CUSTOMER over my own desires to build something cool.

I favor bending the rules (without breaking them) over abiding by them.

I believe in the resiliency and adaptability of the human race, and I know we can overcome any challenge if we work together.
