The first Jenkins User Conference China was held on November 19, 2017 in Shanghai, China. It was an amazing conference for Jenkins users in China. There were almost 450 attendees to enjoy a lovely day with Jenkins creator, Kohsuke Kawaguchi.

There were 12 wonderful presentations, 1 workshop and 1 open space to set the stage for JUC China. The day began with Kohsuke, welcomed to the stage by all the attendees here with their warm applauses. All of them are fans of Jenkins and Kohsuke. Thanks to Kohsuke, he made a wonderful presentation to show the past, present and future of Jenkins for Chinese Jenkins users.

It also has proven that “If it hurts, do it more often!” is right because the IT organization who deploy more frequently, deployment failure would be less.
