Building a Modern CI/CD Pipeline with Jenkins

by Chris Blackden

Jenkins is an extremely powerful tool that can automate CI/CD tasks across any platform, framework, or language. By learning how to write Jenkins pipelines, you can build, test, and deploy code reliably, securely, and consistently.

What you'll learn

DevOps engineers are often asked to build, test, and deploy applications in a way that's reliable and repeatable without making code changes to the application itself. One of the tools that's available to do that is Jenkins pipelines. In this course, Building a Modern CI/CD Pipeline with Jenkins, you will dive into foundational knowledge to write a Jenkins pipeline. First, you will learn the basic syntax and expressions. Next, you will discover how to version your pipeline code in GitHub. Finally, you will explore how to import functions and pipeline code from a shared library. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge needed by DevOps engineers to create, version, and deploy pipeline code.
