Jenkins User Boot Camp (Java/Python)

Learn how to use Jenkins to deliver more value, more frequently, and with lower risk than traditional engineering

The 21st-century software engineering practices of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) have rapidly come to define the best practices for software development, quality assurance, and delivery. CI/CD practices are fundamental to most successful DevOps practices and enable huge benefits for delivering more value, more frequently and with lower risk than traditional engineering. At the same time, CI/CD practices drastically reduce many of the risks and pains associated with deploying software releases and bugfixes.

Jenkins has long been the community tool leader in the open-source world for practicing continuous integration and delivery. This hands-on Jenkins training course teaches enables engineering and development teams to use a practical end-to-end DevOps Pipeline to create, test and deploy Java and Python code using Jenkins.

Our lab environment and classroom model is deeply interactive, giving students hands-on practice and access to an expert in the classroom so they can return to work ready to immediately use everything Jenkins has to offer. NOTE: This course assumes a working knowledge of Java and Python. If additional training is needed to prepare your team, please contact your learning advisor.
