Abstract

More and more teams are deploying cloud native applications on kubernetes, placing new demands on engineers who want to deploy and test easily during their development workflow. Traditional CI/CD systems haven’t been designed for cloud native environments and need to evolve. Jenkins X is a cloud native CI/CD platform that has done just that, integrating tools in the kubernetes ecosystem into an opinionated system for CI/CD as code.

 

In this talk we’ll explain the CI/CD challenges in a cloud native landscape, and show how Jenkins X rises to them by leveraging open source cloud native technologies like Knative Pipelines. We’ll demo a GitOps based Jenkins X workflow, showing how simple Jenkins X makes it for developers to stage and deploy changes on demand.
