Building a modern CI / CD process using the Jenkins server

Categories: Linux administration, Networking, Virtualization

Engineers are required to build, test and deploy applications in a reliable and repeatable manner. During this training, the participant will acquire basic knowledge related to modern solutions for continuous software development and deployment (CI / CD). One of the tools available to facilitate this process is the Jenkins Automation Server. It is a completely free (open source) tool offering powerful capabilities. The rich feature set is constantly growing thanks to a very active community. A very extensive ecosystem of external extensions (plug-in) gives unlimited possibilities of adapting the solution to your own needs.

During the training, the participant will learn various methods of configuration and active use of the Jenkins server. Various ways of testing the application will also be discussed, as well as the processes enabling acceleration of software development. The participant will learn how to implement the solution in her/his current environment and how to integrate it with other solutions and services (such as Git, Maven, AWS, Docker and many more).

Upon completing the course, participants will have the following skills/knowledge:

#reducing the time needed to implement new software features or releases #implementation of CI / CD solutions in the company #knowledge of the risks and problems that accompany software development (and methods of solving those) #knowledge of a wide range of software testing methods #ability to setup, use and manage the Jenkins automation server #understanding alternative solutions for automation environments #knowledge of the various processes and mechanisms related to CI / CD #ability to automate repetitive tasks

Audience and prerequisites

The training is aimed at programmers, architects, team-leaders, software testers and people responsible for creating application environments (such as administrators and DevOps).

The course program assumes basic knowledge of the Linux environment, using the shell (Bash) command line. The participant should also have a basic knowledge of source control (Git). Experience in software development (in any environment: Java / JavaScript / Python / PHP / Ruby / C ++ / .NET, etc) will be a great help for the participant.


Course participants receive completion certificates signed by ALX.
