The previous blog post of this series discusses what I think makes CI/CD for mobile app development a unique kind of animal, and my first steps in building Android apps with Jenkins.

We’re talking about building something with Jenkins, using an Android device as a Jenkins node, or potentially as...
What is miniJen?
It’s the smallest Jenkins multi-cpu-architectures instance known to this day.
It’s composed of a 4 arm Cortex-A55 core RockChip controller (aarch64), a 4 arm Cortex-A7a core AllWinner agent (armv7l), a 4 arm Cortex-A53 core AllWinner agent (aarch64), and a single RV64GCV core AllWinner agent (RISC-V).
