ABOUT THE EVENT / CD Summit and Jenkins Days

Don’t miss this unique, opportunity to engage directly with Continuous Delivery and Jenkins experts within the DevOps community!

The CD Summit & Jenkins Days Austin focuses on continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) as the fundamental best practice for enterprise software delivery. The event is designed for Enterprise Managers and Buyers along with Developers, Engineers, Sys Admins, Architects. With two main tracks focused on IT managers and Jenkins practitioners, attendees will get access to the best minds in CD and DevOps. The presenters are experienced developers, build managers, QA, DevOps practitioners, IT managers/executives, architects and IT operations who are luminaries within the DevOps community. They represent the many organizations around the country that are leveraging the use of CD within the software delivery lifecycle.

The two day event consists of a day of workshops and a separate day of talking sessions.  Our educational workshops are brought to us by IBM, CloudBees, and DevOps Institute, helping to inform their learners about BlueMix, Jenkins, and DevOps.  Our talking sessions are split into three different tracks: technical, management, and Jenkins.  The technical track is more of an in-depth look at the processes and infrastructure that go into DevOps and CI/CD, compared to the mangement track which focus more on the DevOps team, a companies DevOps story, and how to achieve certain goals in DevOps.  The Jenkins track offers insight on the Jenkins platform, such as how to use it and best practices.

DevOps Connect events are currently being organized at existing conferences, such as at RSA Conference, select InnoTech events, as well as standalone events in cities around the globe. Stay tuned to our news section for these announcements.

Automated Testing Made Awesome with Sauce Labs

Presenter: Neil ManvarSolutions Architect at Sauce Labs

As engineering organizations make the shift from waterfall to Agile development practices, they find that one of the most difficult, and expensive bottlenecks to achieving true CI/CD is automated testing. This presentation will show how to get this critical piece of your pipeline right, and properly implement automated testing in a DevOps environment. Neil Manvar, Solutions Architect at Sauce Labs, will demonstrate how to leverage test automation at scale with the Sauce Labs cloud. With access to 800+ browser/OS/device combinations (including mobile) to run your functional and JSUnit tests, your team doesn’t have to worry about maintaining infrastructure, and instead can focus on delivering quality code more frequently.
