Within this set of video demonstrations, you will learn how to install Jenkins, configure it for use in your local environment, create a build and deployment account, configure and register a build slave, schedule builds on the master and slave nodes and work with and install plugins.

Once you have completed the course, you will be well on your way to implementing Jenkins for configuration management and deployment in your environment!
