Top 10 Best Jenkins video tutorials | Learn Jenkins

Jenkins is a popular continuous integration tool that is used for automating the workflows without manually scheduling the test cases. Jenkins is originally developed for managing the build and release tool and it is written in Java. Later, Continous Integration and Continous deployment tools/features are added to Jenkins. Initially, it is used for building, testing and deploying the Java Applications, but now, it is used for many applications such as C#, Python, PHP, Ruby, HTML, Javascript etc,. Jenkins is used by the build and release team, development team, DevOps teams.


Why continuous integration?
let's take understand this considering a scenario, where each group of developers is working on the projects. Each group of developers submitted their component, their code may work in the unit testing but it fails in integration testing. It will very difficult to identify bugs and it will a lot of time to develop the end product. Continuous integration solves this problem, whenever each group of developers has developed a component, it will undergo, build, test and feedback is shared with respective teams. Instead of waiting for feedbacks, Continuous integration helps them to work on the new components.

Why Jenkins?
Jenkins is a fast and reliable tool for automating building, testing and deployment. The best thing about the Jenkins is multiple pipeline support, you can automate your workflows without manually scheduling the tasks/test cases.

For example: If you want the run the test cases in the morning at 7AM so that your execution is completed before you start working. If you don't have Jenkins, you have run the Maven manually in the morning. But with the help of Jenkins, you don't need to do that. Jenkins will automatically run the test cases.

You can find the plugins for almost everything such as database integrations, Maven, Github, Bitbucket, Google cloud and also, you can use your customized script builds instead of the plugins. Jenkins helps Development teams to deploy their code with one click deploy.

Prerequisites:
Before getting started with Jenkins, you should have knowledge of Linux commands and Git, Software Development Life Cycle, Maven.
