Learn how to think about your development pipeline as a mission-critical application, with techniques for implementing code-driven infrastructure and CI/CD systems using Jenkins, Docker, Terraform, and cloud-native services.
In Pipeline as Code, you will master:
Building and deploying a Jenkins cluster from scratch
Writing pipeline as code for cloud native applications
Automating the deployment of Dockerized and Serverless applications
Containerizing applications with Docker and Kubernetes
Deploying Jenkins on AWS, GCP and Azure
Managing, securing and monitoring a Jenkins cluster in production
Key principles for a successful DevOps culture
Pipeline as Code is a practical guide to automating your development pipeline in a cloud-native, service-driven world. You’ll use the latest infrastructure-as-code tools like Packer and Terraform to develop reliable CI/CD pipelines for numerous cloud-native applications. Follow this book's insightful best practices, and you’ll soon be delivering software that’s quicker to market, faster to deploy, and with less last-minute production bugs.
about the technology
A good deployment pipeline is the backbone of successful DevOps. Using tools such as Jenkins, CI/CD can seamlessly manage the code of multiple developers, with early accuracy checks and error spotting thanks to automated testing.
about the book
Pipeline as Code teaches you to build your very first CI/CD pipeline with new automation technologies, modern cloud-hosted services, and classic tools like Jenkins. It’s filled with techniques that author and Jenkins contributor Mohamed Labouardy has developed maintaining thousands of production services.
Each chapter includes relevant hands-on examples, including writing a CI/CD workflow for serverless AWS Lambda-based applications, and deploying a centralized logging platform based on the ELK stack. You’ll explore cutting-edge methods of running Jenkins inside Kubernetes, and packaging Kubernetes applications within CI/CD pipelines. By the time you’re done, you’ll be able to deploy a self-healing Jenkins cluster on cloud and take advantage of your new pipeline with essential DevOps practices.
