There were significant changes in the Jenkins project over last year. It is still one of the most popular automation servers in the world, but it is not just a “server” anymore. In 2019 Jenkins is a universal automation engine, which actively evolves towards the new Cloud Native architecture and which can be used in any CI/CD flows. It can be used not only as a server, but also as a “serverless” single-shot execution. And it is not only about Jenkins X, but also about more classic usages.
In my talk I will present Jenkinsfile Runner - an engine which allows running Jenkins Pipelines in a single-shot container. I will show how it is used in Jenkins X, GitHub Actions and other services. And, finally, I will show how to package your own Jenkinsfile Runner images and run it in any environments, CI systems and Cloud providers.
