Jenkins X is a combination of best of breed tools and software for Kubernetes. It provides an interactive command-line interface to instantiate applications, repositories, environments, and pipelines and orchestrate continuous integration and continuous delivery. It is a CI/CD solution for development of modern cloud applications on containers and Kubernetes.
During this 1-day workshop, participants will explore how to create a fully operational continuous delivery pipeline using containers, Kubernetes, Jenkins X, and quite a few other tools. Attendees will gain hands-on experience in areas such as continuous build, continuous testing, deploying, and running any other tasks related to the lifecycle of modern applications. At the end of the workshop, participants are expected to have a fully automated pipeline of everything happening after they push changes to their code repositories.

This 1-day workshop will be particularly enjoyed by Software Engineers, Software Engineers in Test, DevOps Engineers etc who are comfortable with the basics of containerisation and Kubernetes and are looking for ways to take their knowledge to the next level.
