Integrate Jenkins, Kubernetes, and more on cloud into a robust, GitOps-driven CI/CD system, leveraging JCasC, IaC, and AI for a streamlined software delivery process

Key Features:

  • Follow the construction of a Jenkins CI/CD pipeline start to finish through a real-world example
  • Construct a continuous deployment (CD) pipeline in Jenkins using GitOps principles and integration with Argo CD
  • Craft and optimize your CI pipeline code with ChatGPT and GitHub Copilot

This updated edition of Learning Continuous Integration with Jenkins is your one-stop guide to implementing CI/CD with Jenkins, addressing crucial technologies such as cloud computing, containerization, Infrastructure as Code, and GitOps. Tailored to both beginners and seasoned developers, the book provides a practical path to mastering a production-grade, secure, resilient, and cost-effective CI/CD setup.

Starting with a detailed introduction to the fundamental principles of CI, this book systematically takes you through setting up a CI environment using Jenkins and other pivotal DevOps tools within the CI/CD ecosystem. You’ll learn to write pipeline code with AI assistance and craft your own CI pipeline. With the help of hands-on tutorials, you’ll gain a profound understanding of the CI process and Jenkins’ robust capabilities. Additionally, the book teaches you how to expand your CI pipeline with automated testing and deployment, setting the stage for continuous deployment. To help you through the complete software delivery process, this book also covers methods to ensure that your CI/CD setup is maintainable across teams, secure, and performs optimally.

By the end of the book, you’ll have become an expert in implementing and optimizing CI/CD setups across diverse teams.
