As all companies become software companies, the reliability of software becomes an integral part of a business’ success. Continuous testing is critical for delivering robust software and increasing reliability and confidence when software is released. Without constant validation, failure is imminent.

Continuous integration allows developers to automate the debugging of new code as it is integrated and identify problems early in the release process. Jenkins is a widely used CI/CD platform, but the lack of a thorough understanding of best practices and scalability is pervasive. It is easy to install Jenkins, but it is difficult to get it right. This course walks you through industry standard best practices to deploy and maintain continuous testing with Jenkins.

In this course, you learn how to deploy and configure a Jenkins instance with a real-world use case scenario.

Cloud technology advancement has changed the face of the tech world, with more emphasis on continuous integration and delivery. Learn how to deploy, configure, and take advantage of Jenkins for Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) and pipeline-like workflows.

This LiveLesson walks you through the industry standard best practices of deploying Jenkins in a continuous testing environment. Learn to create fully functional Jenkins servers based on Infrastructure as Code (IaC) as well as deploy Jenkins in both AWS and Google Cloud. Learn the advanced features of Jenkins, including the Jenkins Job Builder. Finally, learn several real-world Jenkins deployment case studies.
