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

Microservices Continuous Delivery with Docker and Jenkins

Source:- 126kr.com Docker, Microservices, Continuous Delivery are currently some of the most popular topics in the world of programming. In an environment consisting of dozens of microservices communicating with each other it seems to be particularly important the automation of the testing, building and deployment process. Docker is excellent solution for microservices, because it can create and run isolated containers with service. Today, I’m going to present you how to create basic continuous delivery pipeline for sample microservices using most popular software automation tool – Jenkins. Sample

Customizing your Docker container

Source:- mesosphere.com About customizing your Docker container By default, Mesosphere DC/OS runs everything inside Docker containers to minimize dependencies on the underlying host operating system and to offer resilience in the event of a machine failure. When using Jenkins for DC/OS, the underlying Mesos scheduler in DC/OS creates new Jenkins agents that run as Mesos tasks within a Docker container. User-configured builds are then run inside the same container. Because builds typically have steps that invoke the Docker utility, such

The rules of selecting tools for continuous delivery toolchains

Source:- 126kr.com If the tool you use does not support continuous delivery values, you’re going to have a bad time implementing CI/CD with fully automated pipelines. Here are some rules for the road: The first rule is: Don’t select your toolchain until you have designed the pipeline you want to have Every action or configuration can become code in source control so you can version things and get an audit trail on changes Everything that can be invoked or configured

Continuous Integration Testing with Jenkins

In software development and testing fields, Continuous Integration (CI) is an exercise of combining all development work to a shared main server several times a day.  The goal of CI is to reduce time and effort required for a product launch. The process of continuous integration is achieved with the help of version control, strategies & contracts and special tools. One of the famous tools used for CI testing is Jenkins. “Jenkins is an open source automation tool, which can

Continuous deployment for your tests

Source:- microfocus.com Why would you want to continuously deploy your tests? Release fast and release often. This core principle of modern software development provides numerous advantages, for example earlier customer feedback, faster response cycles, and overall higher customer satisfaction. When trying to increase your release frequency, you will be faced with many testing issues, including the following: Changing tests might lead to unexpected failures (false-positives) or unwanted passes (false-negatives). The probability of introducing breaking changes to your automated test set

Continuous Integration with GitLab

Source:- 126kr.com Recently Team Alfonzó, with help from the Build Team, took the next in adopting a new build infrastructure. We wanted to move away from Jenkins and the TOPdesk DockerHub registry, towards a more distributed infrastructure. Our Implementation Wizard project gave us the opportunity we were looking for to start making use of GitLab’s CI and Registry features. How does GitLab compare to a Jenkins pipeline script? If you have ever written a pipeline script for Jenkins you will
