  • Using Jenkins To Automate Building, Testing And Deployment Of New Code

    5:00 PM Saturday   Room: S-140
    Jenkins is a popular web based build automation tool used in agile development and the DevOps movement. Jenkins allows you to define a sequence of build jobs that can be automatically triggered by a git commit. Jenkins provides a dashboard to monitor the status of build jobs. If there is a problem with the build you can drill down into the build logs to discover the exact error. This allows you to quickly discover the problem and fix it. An overview of Jenkins and how it works will be presented. Building and testing of a simple PHP program will be demonstrated.
