Jenkins + jclouds + CloudStack = On-demand Continuous Integration by David Nalley

Setting up continuous integration for a single project can be a pretty daunting task. Doing that for hundreds of projects becomes a challenge of a different magnitude. Not only are their capacity problems, but some tests are destructive to the testing environment, some have esoteric environment demands. See how this is solved in the real world using Jenkins, jclouds, CloudStack to build an on-demand build infrastructure.

Agenda:

6:00pm - 6:45pm: Pizza, beer and games (foosball & pool)

6:45pm - 8:00pm: Jenkins + jclouds + CloudStack = On-demand Continuous Integration

8:00pm - 9:00pm: Q&A and networking + announce winners of raffle

9:00pm: End

Virtualization is a crucial part of enterprise IT operations and cloud services and innovation is needed to make virtualization systems more efficient, adaptive, and easier to deploy.

Linux has been at the center of this with advancements in nearly every aspect of virtualization with Linux containers being the most recent disruptive technology.
