vJUG Talk - Jenkins X: Continuous Delivery for Kubernetes

The last 5 years has seen a huge change in how we build, package, run and manage software with the rise of Kubernetes, Cloud Native, Microservices and Continuous Delivery. As a result we all need to get better at delivering business value to our customers faster and continuously with a cloud native strategy - but how?

This @virtualJUG talk will introduce you to a new open source project, Jenkins X which is an open source CI / CD platform for Kubernetes based on Jenkins.

Presented by James Strachan, after a couple of slides he will demonstrate how to get stuff done with Jenkins X:

  • easily setup your own Jenkins based CI / CD system on your cloud of choice
  • quickly get started developing new microservices with automated CI / CD
  • import existing projects with automated CI / CD
  • use Pull Requests to trigger CI, Preview Environments, human approval then a full CD release
  • use automated provisioning to testing, staging, ephemeral and production environments via helm charts and GitOps

After this talk you should be able to develop at full speed with CI / CD in a cloud native way in any language on any cloud or kubernetes cluster! Lets all go faster!

Talk 2 - Introduction into Stream API

Stream API was introduced in Java-8 in 2014. A lot of people are still learning and adopting streams. We will look at what is a Stream, how and when to use it and, more importantly, when not to use it.

In this presentation by Dublin Java User Group Platinum Member Anton Balaniuc, a software developer at Workday, you will find out what is a stream, how and when to use it, and a chance to solve a few stream puzzles.

The talk is designed for developers who are new to the Stream, but it will be useful for experienced developers as well.
