Course to help SREs, software developers, software architects and other DevOps professionals use Jenkins to improve their CI/CD practices
SAN FRANCISCO, October 6, 2020 – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today announced the availability of a new training course, LFS267 – Jenkins Essentials.
LFS267, developed in conjunction with the Continuous Delivery Foundation, is designed for DevOps engineers, Quality Assurance personnel, SREs as well as software developers and architects who want to gain expertise with Jenkins for their continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) activities.
Jenkins is an open source automation server that provides hundreds of plugins to support building, deploying and automating any project. Since its inception in 2004, Jenkins continues to be the most popular CI server in the world.
In this course, students will learn how to set up Jenkins in a Kubernetes cluster, automate Jenkins installation using IaC concepts, set up a highly available Jenkins server, scale Jenkins infrastructure by leveraging static and dynamic build agents, automate various routine Jenkins tasks using CLI and RestAPI, secure Jenkins jobs by implementing fine-grained security controls, set up effective CI/CD feedback loops, set up complex multi-branch pipelines simulating real-life scenarios, and automate pull request workflow using GitOps principles. These skills will prepare you for SRE, DevOps, and release engineer roles.
Before enrolling, students should have a basic understanding of Jenkins, Kubernetes and Docker. Those unfamiliar with these projects should first consider enrolling in free training courses from The Linux Foundation including Introduction to Jenkins, Introduction to Cloud Infrastructure Technologies, and Introduction to Kubernetes.
The new course was developed by Himanshu Gautam and Deepika Gautam. Himanshu is an author, trainer, speaker, and problem solver with 20+ years of experience in software engineering. He is also an avid reader and a DevOps evangelist focused on creating elegant cloud-native architectures. He has also authored the CI/CD with Jenkins X (LFS268) course. Deepika is an author, speaker, trainer, and DevOps evangelist with almost two decades of experience in the software industry who specializes in implementing DevOps toolchains in multi cloud environments. She has also authored the Introduction to Jenkins (LFS167x) course. They together founded Aplima Inc., a CI/CD solution provider.
The course is available to begin immediately. The $299 course fee provides unlimited access to the course for one year to all content and labs. Interested individuals may enroll here.
