Jenkins is an open source automation server which enables developers around the world to reliably build, test, and deploy their software.
Jenkins, originally founded in 2006 as "Hudson", is one of the leading automation servers available. Using an extensible, plugin-based architecture developers have created hundreds of plugins to adapt Jenkins to a multitude of build, test, and deployment automation workloads. In 2015, Jenkins surpassed 100,000 known installations making it the most widely deployed automation server.

Blue Ocean is a new user experience for Jenkins based on a personalizable, modern design that allows users to graphically create, visualize and diagnose Continuous Delivery (CD) Pipelines
Developers of any skill level can create Continuous Delivery pipelines from start to finish using the intuitive and visual pipeline editor.
Enables developers to visually represent pipelines in a way even their boss’s boss can understand, improving clarity into the CD process for the whole organization
Developers locate automation problems instantly without endlessly scanning through logs or navigating through many screens.
Developers can make Jenkins their own by customizing their dashboard so that they only see the Pipelines that matter to them.
Pipelines are run for all feature branches and pull requests, with their status reported back to Github, so the whole team knows if your changes need work or are good to go.
Also available for download in full high definition.
