In this series of liveProjects, you’ll use pipeline-as-code techniques and Jenkins infrastructure to set up new CI/CD pipelines for software development. Stepping into the role of an automation engineer looking for a better way to manage application lifecycle activities, you’ll implement DevOps practices such as continuous integration and continuous delivery using Jenkins Pipeline (pipeline-as-code). To do this, you’ll use a declarative pipeline and Blue Ocean to create a Jenkinsfile for pipeline-as-code adoption. CI/CD pipelines that are iterated as pipeline-as-code are some of the most robust and easy-to-use features of Jenkins for non-technical colleagues.

For more on CI/CD implementation using Pipeline as Code, please see CI/CD Pipeline for a Web Application Using Jenkins.

These projects are designed for learning purposes and are not complete, production-ready applications or solutions.

For any beginners these projects will be a good start with Jenkins pipeline.
