The Linux Foundation has joined hands with Continuous Delivery Foundation (CDF) to launch a free training course on the edX platform, LFS167x – Introduction to Jenkins. The course will help teach the fundamentals of continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD), and how they help transform the overall software delivery process.
Are you or your team starting to use Jenkins as a CI/CD tool? Are you looking to automate your software delivery process? Do you need guidelines on how to set up your CI/CD workflow using Jenkins automation server? If so, this is the course for you.
According to the blog post, “The course is most useful for roles such as DevOps engineers, software developers and architects, and professionals focused on site reliability and quality assurance, though anyone involved in the software delivery process will benefit.”
This course offers an introduction to the Jenkins automation server, and also includes instructions on how to set up/use Jenkins for your CI/CD workflow.
Upon completion, enrollees can look forward to have:
- a solid understanding of the role that Jenkins plays in the software development lifecycle,
- how to install a Jenkins server,
- how to build software with it,
- how to manage third party integrations/plugins and
- how to scale and secure Jenkins.
They will also get a glimpse of what they can do to further enhance their CI/CD skills, the post added.
The course was developed by Deepika Gautam, an author, speaker, trainer, DevOps evangelist with almost two decades of experience in the software industry.
