Get drunk on the code in JUC-Boston

Steven Christou
June 5, 2014


Let me start by introducing myself, my name is Steven Christou. Many of you might know me on IRC as schristou, my github id as christ66, or my twitter handle @schristou88. In Jenkins, I am currently working on some significant improvements to the subversion-plugin, along with various random bug fixes. I am also the current maintainer of Cobertura, an open source code coverage tool for java. Prior to working on Jenkins, I was working on Hudson at the Eclipse Foundation.

While working on Jenkins, I usually get requests (usually in IRC) about where to start when writing a plugin. Some examples are "Where do I start?" or "Do you have any examples?". Well at JUC Boston, I will be hosting a small lecture called Get Drunk on the Code! I will be giving the lecture in the rooms "Back Bay" (1 & 2) where people will be able to sit down, drink a beer, and learn how to write a Jenkins plugin! I will be teaching people everything from how to get started, to some advanced techniques like writing a new CLI Command, and writing your own builder. I forgot to mention that I will be handing out beer while this is happening!

This session will be happening after the exhibit break from 3:30pm to 6:00pm. It will be two hours where I will be walking around, and helping users if they encounter any issues while the session is happening. So grab your laptop, a beer and get drunk on the code! Don’t get too drunk, but if you do at least you can improve the beer plugin!"
