October has proven to be a busy month within the Jenkins Area Meetup groups. Below is a recap of topics discussed at various JAMS in the month of October.

Dallas Forth Worth, Texas (DFW) JAM

James Dumay took time out of his vacation to present Blue Ocean, a project that rethinks the user experience of Jenkins, modeling and presenting the process of software delivery by surfacing information that is important to development teams with as few clicks as possible, while still staying true to the extensibility that Jenkins always has had as a core value.

San Francisco, CA JAM

Andrey Falko from Salesforce shared how he and his Diagnostics team used Jenkins to deliver software securely and reliably to production within Salesforce.

Boulder, CO JAM

This was a meetup with CA Technologies and included Mark Waite, maintainer of the Jenkins git plugin and a director at CA Technologies in Fort Collins. Tyler did a great presentation about Jenkins Pipeline and Blue Ocean and showed off how the community is using Blue Ocean to build Jenkins.

Barcelona, Spain JAM

At this meetup, there were plenty of engaging discussions surrounding the Jenkins Certification and DevOps 2.1 Toolkit: Continuous Deployment with Jenkins and Docker Swarm. Guillem Sola shared his Jenkins certification experience HERE while Viktor Farcic presented his thoughts on the aspects of building, testing, deploying, and monitoring services inside Docker Swarm clusters and Jenkins https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fs1ED_y5mUc.

Lima, Peru JAM

Lima JAM

October’s meetup was a joint effort with collaboration from Perú JUG, and Docker Lima. The first talk was an Introduction to Docker Ecosystem, second was Building and Testing Apps with Docker and Arquillian Cube and the last one was CI/CD using Docker and Jenkins Pipelines.

We had a full house at the meetup. Now, everyone in the room has a Mr. Jenkins branded on their laptop :)

Special thanks to Mario Inga and Héctor Paz for their collaborations during the last meetups.
