Continuous Delivery is an extension to broadly acclaimed Continuous Integration. Attendees will posses a solid understanding of how to efficiently implement Continuous Integration. They will be able to customize Jenkins to meet various common requirements, integrate with artifact repositories, reporting tools and fit Jenkins into deployment schemes.

Since Jenkins (or Hudson) is a fairly popular tool and there is a plenty of entry level tutorials for Jenkins available, our workshop will not concentrate on those. Instead, we will be sharing project-won experience and try to teach things you cannot easily learn yourself. We’ll show how to make your life with Jenkins smoother and your build pipeline more robust.


We intend to share good practices and usage patterns of Continuous Integration. Workshop is primarily aimed at technical audience involved in software delivery cycle, namely:

  • Developers
  • Architects
  • Build managers
  • DevOps engineers
  • QA engineers
  • and others interested in the area.


We assume attendees are familiar with Java ecosystem, have some experience with Java build tools, version control and software lifecycle.

Since hands on is a very important part of the course, a laptop with 2GB RAM and 20GB disk space available for a Virtualbox ( virtual machine (which we will provide).

The workshop will consist of a mixture of theory and hands on work (50/50%).
