Jenkins World

At previous Jenkins User Conferences we have hosted "Contributor Summits" to gather developers and power-users in one room to discuss specific areas of Jenkins, such as Scalability, Pipeline, etc. As part of this year’s Jenkins World we’re hosting another Contributor Summit, to discuss: Blue Ocean, Pipeline and Storage Pluggability.

Contributors to these three areas of the Jenkins ecosystem will be in attendance to present details of their design, requirements, and tentative roadmaps. After the presentations, the afternoon will be "unconference style" which is much more fluid to allow discussions, feedback, and brain-storming around the three focus areas.

The program for the Jenkins World Contributor Summit includes:

  • Updates from the various project officers.

  • A discussion of the Blue Ocean technology stack, overall architecture, and how to develop plugins that integrate with Blue Ocean. Led by Keith Zantow.

  • Presentation on the current status of Pipeline, lessons learned, new changes and the future. Led by Jesse Glick.

  • Overview of "Storage Pluggability", a new scalability-oriented project to revamp the underlying storage mechanisms in Jenkins. Led by Kohsuke Kawaguchi.

I cannot recommend participating in the Contributor Summit enough. I have found previous Summits to be immensely useful for sharing my own thoughts, as well as for hearing new perspectives from the others in attendance.

Our space is limited however! I encourage you to join us, so please RSVP soon!
