I learned Jenkins the hard way

After struggling to setup Jenkins right, I have some lessons to share

My Jenkins story

I worked for many years developing software which was built on flaky, slow, and difficult to update Jenkins instances. I couldn’t understand why the rigour of software development couldn’t also apply to CI.

A few years later, on a new project and with some new AWS skills, I decided it was time to productionize Jenkins.

What did that mean for Jenkins?

By combining several of the latest tools, I achieved my goal and made my team’s deployment process much more reliable.

Now, I’d like to share what I’ve learnt with you.

On this site you’ll find a wealth of information to help you deploy and scale Jenkins to ensure your project’s success.
