If you'd like to join us for a day of development focused on Jenkins, RSVP. The format of the Hackfest is inspired by Open Space Technology (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Space_Technology) where focus is dictated by constituency, which secures high levels of active participation from attendees. Bring your own topics: prior to the hackfest, we encourage attendees to think and prepare topic suggestions — things you’d like to work on with others. The different topic suggestions will all be added to a backlog and at the hackfest we will identify and cluster around popular topics. Then we split out into smaller groups and work with these topics in timeboxed sessions. Additional sessions that will take place in parallel to the above: Hackergarten - an effort specific to getting started with the basics of contributing to Jenkins. This session would be excellent for anyone interested in helping out in the Jenkins Project. Help is needed in the areas of infrastructure, documentation, etc. We'll cover the specifics of how/where you can fix typos in the core or any plugin by filling PRs. This meetup will be hosted by Baptiste Mathus and Michaël Pailloncy, long time contributors, can help onboard any potential contributors.

  • Jenkins World 2017 Contributor Summit

    San Francisco Marriott Marquis

    Room Location: Golden Gate Ballroom A Let's talk about the future of Jenkins and how you can help shape it! The contributor summit is the place where the current and future contributors of the Jenkins project get together. This year, the theme is “working together”. Traditionally, most contributors are plugin maintainers focusing on their own plugins, but it’s important to look at Jenkins as a whole, because that’s how users experience it. There is more to the project beyond writing plugins, and even for plugin developers, there are increasing number of common libraries and modules that plugins should rely on. In short, we should work better together. A few contributors will prepare some presentations to help clarify what that means, and what all of us can do. And in the afternoon, there will be "unconference" sessions to brainstorm and discuss what we can do and how. Whether you are already a contributor or just thinking about becoming one, please join us for this full day free event. Attending is free, no conference ticket required. Agenda/Schedule 9:00 – 9:15: Welcome 9:15 – 9:45: Introduction to participating in the Jenkins project 9:45 – 10:45: The last year in review 10:45 – 11:00: Break 11:00 – 12:00: A vision for Jenkins 12:00 – 13:00: Lunch 13:00 - 13:30: Discuss unconference topics 13:30 - 16:30: Unconference tracks/discussions 16:30 - 17:00: Recap and wrap-up 19:30 - 20:30: Please join us for dinner and drinks at the Autodesk Gallery.
