Are you stuck in the new DevOps matrix from hell?

Source – sdtimes.com If you google “matrix from hell,” you’ll see many articles about how Docker solves the matrix from hell. So, what is the matrix from hell? Put simply, it is the challenge of packaging any application, regardless of language/frameworks/dependencies, so that it can run on any cloud, regardless of operating systems/hardware/infrastructure. The original matrix from hell: applications were tightly coupled with underlying hardware Docker solved for the matrix from hell by decoupling the application from the underlying operating system

New DevOps deployment tools dangle Jenkins alternatives

Source – techtarget.com Some enterprises have passed over tried-and-true DevOps tools, such as Jenkins, in favor of new DevOps deployment tools that offer a smoother experience. One Jenkins rival, Shippable Inc., has expanded its product to encompass both continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) during the last year, and it has added an on-premises alternative for security-sensitive enterprises this week called Shippable Server.

Continuous Delivery with VSTS and Jenkins

Source – stackoverflow.com I’m trying to get continuous delivery going with Jenkins (building, deploying) and VSTS (source control). This is the desired workflow: a developer branches off master, makes changes, creates a pull request another developer reviews the PR and eventually merges it into master some system (Jenkins or VSTS) detects that a PR was merged into master and… increments a version number stored in a file within the repo commits the version change back to master builds deploys I was

Jenkins Continuous Deployment

Source – wisdomjobs.com How Jenkins supports continuous deployment? Jenkins offers good support for continuous deployment and delivery. Flow of any software development through deployment is shown below. Main part of Continuous deployment is to make sure that the entire above shown process is automated. Jenkins accomplishes all of this using various plugins, one of them being “Deploy to container Plugin” which was seen in the earlier lessons. Many plugins are available which can actually give a graphical representation of the Continuous

Continuous integration and delivery with Jenkins Pipelines & Blue Ocean

Source – moori.n At Moor Interactive we continuously improve our development and deployment workflows in order to provide a very reliable process for getting our code to production as fast as possible. Over the decade we have intensively worked with Jenkins as our CI/CD platform. Travis CI and Drone are also platforms we used a lot in the years as we used to store everything in Git (the thing we missed about Jenkins and it’s job configurations). Last week we took

Continuous integration tools: Jenkins vs Travis CI

Source – blogs.fasthosts.co.uk Continuous integration tools: Jenkins vs Travis CI Software development can be complicated, especially when things go wrong. Say two developers are working on a project. They are each coding on separate branches of the master code in isolation. Throughout development they’ve tested their code and everything works. When they’ve completed their code they test it again and everything works. Then when it’s all finished, they both integrate their code into the master and… everything breaks. This is

Continuous deployment using Jenkins

Source – thumbtack.com When I joined at Thumbtack, back in late 2015, we had continuous delivery infrastructure for monolith builds. As more engineers joined, we noticed that a significant amount of time went to deploying the latest build. Moreover, there was a trend of having bigger deploys (so call train deploys) and rollbacks tend to be harder. It was a clear indicator we needed to invest into the deployment pipeline. Continuous delivery At Thumbtack, we use Gerrit for code review.

Declarative Jenkins pipeline the latest new feature in DevOps tooling

Source:- theserverside.com The Jenkins 2.0 release was more evolutionary than it was revolutionary, but one feature was anticipated more than all the other DevOps tooling enhancements combined, and that was the formal integration of the Jenkins pipeline. Well, Jenkins has managed to take continuous integration and continuous deployment tooling to the next level by improving on the late 2016 release with the enhanced, declarative Jenkins pipeline. Now the pipeline hasn’t actually changed since the 2.0 release. What has changed with
