Jenkins World 125x125

At Jenkins World 2016 on September 14-15, stop by the "Open Source Hub", located in the Partner Expo hall at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. The Open Source Hub will have many Jenkins contributors, committers, JAM leaders, and officers from the governance board under one roof, so there will be plenty of knowledge and talents on hand to share. We hope you’ll join in on the festivities.

Ask the Experts

The setup that is waiting for you: white boards, monitors and lots of brain power to help answer those Jenkins questions that have been keeping you up at night. Jenkins experts can help with beginner questions to the more advanced ones. All you need to do is bring your laptop and your questions; the experts will help answer them!

Live Demos

Sometimes seeing is believing, there will be plenty of demos in the "Open Source Hub" during the lunch hours on Wednesday September 14th, and Thursday September 15th in the expo hall. Jenkins experts will be show-casing their favorite Jenkins features, plugins and projects. Grab your lunch, take a seat in the open source theater to learn about:

  • Pipelines for Building and Deploying Android Apps by Android Emulator plugin maintainer Chris Orr

  • Git Plugin - Large Repos, Submodule Authentication, and more by Git plugin maintainer Mark Waite

  • Docker and Pipeline by Jenkins infrastructure contributor R Tyler Croy

  • Extending Pipeline with Libraries by Pipeline plugin maintainer Jesse Glick

  • Blue Ocean in Action by Blue Ocean contributor Keith Zantow

  • External Workspace Manager plugin for Pipeline by Google Summer of Code student Alexandru Somai

  • And many more

Jenkins Mural

Jenkins World participants will take part in the realization of a giant collaborative mural painting with the CommitStrip team. Thomas, the writer and Etienne, the cartoonist, teamed up with a few Jenkins contributors to design a 5m x 2m mmural which will be drawn live! Brushes and colors will be available for all attendees who wish to help paint this one of a kind piece of Jenkins art.

Sticker Swap

Jenkins World attendees will have a chance to swap stickers. There will be a table where attendees are welcome to place/take stickers. Bring your cool stickers to share with others and take stickers that interest you.
