Enough admin, on to the Playground!

Kubernetes is hard! Jenkins X aims to simplify this by getting you up and running quickly, and keep you going quickly using some of the industry best practices defined by the Accelerate book. You’ll learn how to be up and running with Jenkins X in no time at all, using the CLI to create new applications and promote them to staging and production environments. We will also demonstrate our use of GitOps and ChatOps to interact with Jenkins X and show how to utilise Preview Environments to get faster feedback to the developer.

Key Takeaways:

Use the JX cli to create a Jenkins X cluster on GKE.
Create an application based on a set of templates
Push the application to a staging environment using GitOps
Change the application, interact with the PR using ChatOps
Learn how Preview Environments can speed up developer feedback

Required:
Basic linux cli experience
Basic understanding of kubernetes concepts
A Github Account
