At Jenkins World last month, we continued the tradition of "lunch-time demos" in the Jenkins project’s booth which we started in 2016. We invited a number of Jenkins contributors to present brief 10-15 minute demos on something they were working on, or considered themselves experts in. Continuing the post-Jenkins World tradition, we also just hosted a "Jenkins Online Meetup" featuring a selection of those lunch-time demos.

I would like to thank Alyssa Tong for organizing this online meetup, Liam Newman for acting as the host, and our speakers:

Below are some links from the sample projects demonstrated and the direct links to each session.

Developing Pipeline Libraries Locally

If you have ever tried developing Pipeline Libraries, you may have noticed how long it takes to deploy a new version to server to discover just another syntax error. I will show how to edit and test Pipeline libraries locally before committing to the repository (with Configuration-as-Code and Docker).

Delivery Pipelines with Jenkins

Showing off how to set up holistic Delivery Pipelines with the DevOps enabler tool Jenkins.

Pimp my Blue Ocean

How to customize Blue Ocean, where I create a custom plugin and extending Blue Ocean with custom theme and custom components.

Deliver Blue Ocean Components at the Speed of Light

Using for Blue Ocean frontend to speed up the delivery process - validate with PM and designer the UX. Showing how quickly you develop your components.

Mozilla’s Declarative + Shared Libraries Setup

How Mozilla is using Declarative Pipelines and shared libraries together.

Git Tips and Tricks

Latest capabilities in the git plugin, like large file support, reference repositories and some reminders of existing tips that can reduce server load, decrease job time, and decrease disc use.

Visual Pipeline Creation in Blue Ocean

We will show how to use Blue Ocean to build a real-world continuous delivery pipeline using the visual pipeline editor. We will coordinate multiple components of a web application across test and production environments, simulating a modern development and deployment workflow.
