DevOps Jenkins: CI/CD with Jenkins Pipeline, AWS Pipeline

Description
This course covers all the fundamentals about Jenkins and teach you everything you need to know to setup a Jenkins build pipeline starting with continuous inspection (build, test and static analysis) all the way to continuous deployment(deploy to staging and production).

In the end of this course, you will gain in-depth knowledge about Jenkins and general DevOps skills to help your company or your own project to apply the right Jenkins workflow and continuously deliver better software.

Basic knowledge
Jenkins is on the bleeding edge of technology today. It is also one of the most compelling technologies of the last decade in terms of its disruption to software development and operation practices
The Jenkins Continuous Integration solution has become a standby in organizations of all sizes that want to increase productivity and streamline software development in the era of Agile. It has extensive community support has the extended the core functionality of Jenkins by developing thousands of useful plugins. An ecosystem of more than 1,100 plug-ins has emerged, enabling customers to add all sorts of functionality and integrate Jenkins with everything from Active Directory to GitHub to Tomcat
Jenkins is becoming a must tool for DevOps. It allows companies to build very sophisticated build pipelines very quickly, thus greatly reducing the risk within the software development lifecycle. Tons of companies have already been using Jenkins to implement continuous integration pipeline. Today you have the access to that same technology right on your desktop
What will you learn
Understand the concepts of continuous inspection, continuous integration, and continuous deployment, and the difference between them
Build an automated continuous deployment pipeline to build, test, analyze and deploy a web-based application with Jenkins
Create a multi-stage Jenkins job and visualize the complicated build pipeline with Jenkins build pipeline plugin
Integrate CI builds with other tools such as GitHub, Maven, Tomcat, Java, etc
Scale Jenkins workflow with Jenkins’ master and slave architecture, deploy and configure a multi-node Jenkins cluster in the cloud for labeled builds
Learn how to configure and extend Jenkins functionality with Jenkins plugins such as copy build artifacts plugins and deploy to container plugins, etc
Invaluable DevOps skills such as setting up staging and production environment for continuous integration workflows
Learn tips on how to effectively improve Jenkins build time such as executing jobs in parallel
Best practices of working with Jenkins in the field
In-depth knowledge about Jenkins and confidence to help your company or your own project to apply the right Jenkins workflow and continuously deliver better software
And many many more…

DevOps Jenkins: CI/CD with Jenkins Pipeline, AWS Pipeline

Serverless CI/CD on the AWS Cloud

CI/CD pipelines have long played a major role in speeding up the development and deployment of cloud-native apps. Cloud services like AWS lend themselves to more agile deployment through the services they offer as well as approaches such as Infrastructure as Code. There is no shortage of tools to help you manage your CI/CD pipeline as well.

While the majority of development teams have streamlined their pipelines to take full advantage of cloud-native features, there is still so much that can be done to refine CI/CD even further. The entire pipeline can now be built as code and managed either via Git as a single source of truth or by using visual tools to help guide the process.

The entire process can be fully automated. Even better, it can be made serverless, which allows the CI/CD pipeline to operate with immense efficiency. Git branches can even be utilized as a base for multiple pipelines. Thanks to the three tools from Amazon; AWS CodeCommit, AWS CodeBuild, and AWS CodeDeploy, serverless CI/CD on the AWS cloud is now easy to set up.

Jenkins Is Getting Old — It’s Time to Move On

By far, Jenkins is the most adopted tool for continuous integration, owning nearly 50% of the market share. As so many developers are using it, it has excellent community support, like no other Jenkins alternative. With that, it has more than 1,500 plugins available for continuous integration and delivery purposes.

We love and respect Jenkins. After all, it’s the first tool we encountered at the beginning of our automation careers. But as things are rapidly changing in the automation field, Jenkins is** left behind with his old approach**. Even though many developers and companies are using it, most of them aren’t happy with it. Having used it ourselves on previous projects, we quickly became frustrated by its lack of functionality, numerous maintenance issues, dependencies, and scaling problems.

We decided to investigate if other developers face the same problems and quickly saw the need to create a tool ourselves. We asked some developers at last year’s AWS Summit in Berlin about this. Most of them told us that they chose Jenkins because it’s free in the first place. However, many of them expressed interest in trying to use some other Jenkins alternative.

When using Jenkins, teams tend to make more mistakes with the delivery and end up with broken pipelines. As a result, they implement inefficient practices, can’t adopt agility well, and lose the flexibility to innovate. When problems come up, you instantly need an expert that will resolve the issues to unblock developers.

Travis CI vs Jenkins: Which CI/CD Tool Is Right For You?

As a DevOps professional, you need to evaluate these tools based on your budget, project requirements, and other data points. This is why we take a deep dive into  Travis CI vs Jenkinscomparison to help you decide the right CI/CD tool for your project requirements.

If you are new to DevOps and are just learning the basics then I recommend you to read this detailed article on  Continuous Integration And Continuous Delivery. Without further ado, let’s get started.

What Is Jenkins?

Jenkins is a popular open-source CI/CD tool that is in usage for a long time. The tool is written entirely in Java. Jenkins has a powerful set of features that can be used to build, test, and integrate changes in a project.

jenkins

It is the go-to choice for startups as it is free to use, supports a wide range of plugins, and is backed by a vibrant community. Developers get the chance to set up a CI/CD environment in Jenkins. Jenkins is available for a wide range of platforms – Windows, macOS, and various flavors of Unix (i.e. Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, and more).

Another major of Jenkins is its extensibility with plugins. Like other open-source projects, Jenkins maintains two release lines – weekly and LTS (Long Term Support). At the time of this article, the latest version of Jenkins (LTS) was 2.235.1.

Salient features of Jenkins

  • Open source and free for use.
  • Extensive plugin ecosystem.
  • Vibrant community.
  • Supports parallel execution.
  • Ease to set up.
  • Offers REST API.
  • Can be configured using Jenkinsfile.

How To Setup a CI/CD Pipeline With Kubernetes 2020 - DZone DevOps

When it comes to DevOps, the word that clicks in mind is CI/CD pipeline. Let’s have a look at Definition of CI/CD pipeline:

CI is straightforward and stands for continuous integration, a practice that focuses on making preparing a release easier. But CD can either mean continuous delivery or continuous deployment and while those two practices have a lot in common, they also have a significant difference that can have critical consequences for a business.

CI stands for Continuous Integration, and CD stands for Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment. You can think of it as a process which is similar to a software development lifecycle.

Systems provide automation of the software build and validation process-driven continuously by running a configured sequence of operations every time a software change is checked into the source code management repository. These are closely associated with agile development practices and closely related to the emerging DevOps toolsets.

In the DevOps world, we have a plethora of toolsets that can help and leverage CICD capabilities.

  • Docker
  • Kubernetes
  • Proxies
  • Git
  • Jenkins/ Jenkins X
  • Ansible
  • Chef
  • Code Pipeline, etc

This blog gives direction to up and running your CICD pipeline running on the Kubernetes cluster by the GitLab CICD pipeline.

Prerequisites

  • Hands-on knowledge of Docker containers
  • Hands-on knowledge of Kubernetes architecture and understanding
  • The Idea of how to write YAML files
  • Up and Running Kubernetes cluster
