Jenkins Consulting

MeteorOps provides Jenkins Consulting services to help you automate seamless software development pipelines

What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is an open-source automation server that provides hundreds of plugins to support building, deploying and automating any project, it also helps in version control, testing and continuous integration and delivery

Continuous Integration is a mode of work where multiple programmers can integrate changes continuously into the same code.

Why use Continuous Integration?

The basis for collaboration is agreement on the facts, and the basis for development velocity is performing experiments in the form of tests to validate the code works as expected.

Continuous Integration achieves both by creating 2 processes:

  1. A process that allows developers to agree on what the "true" codebase is - often referred to as the master branch, or trunk
  2. A process that validates our codebase following changes using tests

In most cases, it is implemented by running tests automatically after a change was introduced into a Git branch, or after a Pull-Request was created.
If the tests don't pass, or if the branch is not up-to-date with the latest changes from the main branch, the change to the code can't be introduced to the main version of the code. This does 2 things: prevents introducing non-working changes into the main branch, and provides the needed confidence for introducing a change to the system.

For most startups, having processes in place that allow collaboration that improves delivery of changes in a consistent, predictable, and safe way, is a crucial part of what allows delivering software.

Why use Jenkins?

Using Jenkins has multiple benefits:

  • Jenkins offers a wide variety of plugins for building, deploying and automating projects, making it a great tool for continuous integration and continuous delivery
  • Jenkins facilitates integration with other tools such as version control systems, testing tools, and deployment tools
  • It has a user-friendly web interface, which allows for easy configuration and management of builds, making it accessible for non-technical users
  • Jenkins has a large community of users who provide support and resources, including tutorials and documentation
  • Jenkins can handle scaling of build processes easily, making it perfect for large and complex projects
