As a continuous delivery engineer I really want software teams to work fast and safe, with ease and having fun. Happy teams are productive, learning and innovative teams. Authoring pipelines is an important aspect of a safe and smooth development cycle. Every new piece of code should be tried, tested, reworked and eventually (potentially) promoted for real use. However, there … Lees verder How to reuse pipelines with Jenkins Shared Libraries


Jenkins shared libraries: tested

Jenkins is a very neat tool to implement a continuous delivery process, mainly due to its flexibility. Sometimes it can be hard though to keep complexity low, and when that happens, (automated) tests become far more important. Jenkins should in fact be running tests that verify the scripts running tests, proving they actually work. Warning: this dog will chase its … Lees verder Jenkins shared libraries: tested

Strangling pipelines

Strangling pipelines This practical example is about the strangulation pattern, as explained by Martin Fowler here, applied to pipelines.   The situation Right after ditching the old manually managed Jenkins jobs, we were left with ‘simple’ but very lengthy procedural pipeline scripts. These scripts were then duplicated and slightly modified for each type of pipeline (because there’s always need for … Lees verder Strangling pipelines
