Introduction To Jenkins: Pipeline

Pipeline Workflow:



Learn the core of the Jenkins CI/CD (Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment) Pipeline through this 2-day hands-on instructor-led class.  Your teams will gain a solid foundation on the most popular CI/CD system available.  We’ll automate code testing and building tasks and turn these instructions into code.  We’ll learn about Jenkins’ distributed architecture and we’ll integrate with Github for distributed version control.


The Introduction to Jenkins: Pipeline is a 2-day course that can be delivered virtually over Zoom or on-site at your location
