Understand various tools and practices for building a continuous integration and delivery pipeline effectively
Hands-On Continuous Integration and Delivery starts with the fundamentals of continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) and where it fits in the DevOps ecosystem. You will explore the importance of stakeholder collaboration as part of CI/CD.
As you make your way through the chapters, you will get to grips with Jenkins UI, and learn to install Jenkins on different platforms, add plugins, and write freestyle scripts. Next, you will gain hands-on experience of developing plugins with Jenkins UI, building the Jenkins 2.0 pipeline, and performing Docker integration. In the concluding chapters, you will install Travis CI and Circle CI and carry out scripting, logging, and debugging, helping you to acquire a broad knowledge of CI/CD with Travis CI and CircleCI.
By the end of this book, you will have a detailed understanding of best practices for CI/CD systems and be able to implement them with confidence.
Hands-On Continuous Integration and Delivery is for system administrators, DevOps engineers, and build and release engineers who want to understand the concept of CI and gain hands-on experience working with prominent tools in the CI ecosystem. Basic knowledge of software delivery is an added advantage.
