FOSDEM 2020 is coming and with it, a lot of great folks come in town.
It’s always a great moment to meet Jenkins community members, share stories and get inspired.
I hope that this year will be as great as it always been and for that, we organize a few things
Things we’ll do
During the whole event, we’ll be virtually on the Gitter

Next week Olivier Vernin from CloudBees and Brian Benz from Microsoft will be presenting a session at DevOps World | Jenkins World about how Microsoft has been working with Jenkins to build Jenkins plugins and produce Jenkins on Microsoft Azure.
These plugins run Jenkins on Azure Linux and Windows VMs, Kubernetes, azure App service, as well as deploy artifacts to those Azure platforms and more.
Jenkins infrastructure is continuously improving.
The latest service to get some attention and major improvement is the Jenkins javadoc.
There were a number of issues affecting that service:
Irregular updates -
Developers wouldn’t find the latest java documentation because of inadequate update frequence.
Broken HTTPS support -

I would like to share my thoughts regarding one of the biggest challenges we
have faced thus far: orchestrating container infrastructure. Many of the
Jenkins project’s applications are run as Docker containers, making Kubernetes

of challenges. For example, what would the workflow from development to
production look like?
