Ephemeral Jenkins: Designing for the Future
Do Jenkins upgrades scare you? Do you have jobs that you no longer use or don't even know what they are for? Do upgrades of software take days vs. hours, because you don’t know what’s actually using that old version of Java 6? As we become more dependent upon Jenkins, we need to understand everything on it and all the changes being made to it. Having automation to build Jenkins out is one thing, but practicing it is another. There are plugins to generate your jobs from source, but how often do you run them? The more static your environment remains the harder it becomes to make a change. My talk will discuss what you need to start thinking about and the steps you can take to bring your Jenkins into the future!
