Look inside

The engineers at XYZ Infotainment need your help in effectively managing their CI/CD pipelines. The company has grown to 100x its size in ten years, and it’s already begun to use Jenkins for automation. The engineers continuously upgrade their skills for continuous integration, and now they’re ready to implement continuous deployment. As an automation engineer, your job is to manage their automated deployment in Kubernetes clusters using declarative syntax in a pipeline-as-code framework—the perfect solution for deploying applications that need to release new features frequently, including XYZ Infotainment's new health app.

You’ll create a Kubernetes cluster using minikube, deploy a web application in a Kubernetes cluster using Jenkins Pipeline, configure Apache JMeter for load testing, then integrate it in a Jenkins pipeline for testing of the company’s new BMI calculator application. By the end of this liveProject, you’ll have invaluable experience applying techniques commonly used by automation engineers to create pipelines with declarative syntax for managing the lifecycle of an application.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
