    One thought on “Jenkins: The Definitive Guide”

    1. While this book had a lot of good information, it was frequently redundant, and frankly, not up to the usually quality of O'Reilly books. Not until the last quarter of the book did it stop reading like a series of blog posts and start to read like a useful manual. In fact, one of my biggest complaints is the amount of redundancy in the books. I can't tell you how many times I was told how to install plug-ins in Jenkins. In addition, there were more than the usual number of typos, errors, and jus [...]

    2. This is quite an encyclopedic work covering every aspect of Jenkins, lots of its plugins and other CI/CD tools. While the book is getting old and does not cover Jenkins 2.0 it is still very useful due to the broad and systematic coverage of Jenkins essentials. It may not suit complete beginner as has lots of advanced topics but is a good read for intermediate and experienced Jenkins engineer.

    3. Continuous Integration is, nowadays, the de facto software engineering practice that allows a team to quickly react to change and deploy safely to production, in time. Despite this, many teams out there, still ignore its benefits and dare to manually test or not to test at all their products before delivering them to the clients, which then translates into those phone calls at 2AM. Despite being, as a matter of fact, the standard in continuous integration and deployment, the literature available [...]

    4. Not a bad book, especially for someone new to CI and not super-familiar with thing Java. Wish the list of plugins used in book were more clearly enumerated, even listed explicitly post-chapter. I was able to use a docker instance to deploy Jenkins locally and work through examples. Gets a little difficult to follow with multimodule projects and chaining builds to launch other builds. Jenkins almost feels too powerful. Wish there was more discussion on scripted languages other than Ruby, but bein [...]

    5. Written in 2011, this book is definitely starting to show its age. I found minor inaccuracies here and there, mostly due to changes and updates of plugins. Also, instead of working with a Git based example project, the book focuses on building a SVN project.Still, even with all its shortcomings, this book is very well-structured and gives the readers a bird's-eye view of the main features of Jenkins. Last but not least, unlike other similar books on Jenkins, all the examples listed in this one a [...]

    6. I bought this book years ago and never finished reading it. The fact that it took me over 5 years to read it prevents me from giving it a higher review.It's not a bad book though. It introduces Jenkins well. And gives you tips on what to look for. It covers different plugins (mainly for Java.) I would have liked more advanced material like things you can do with the Groovy scripting console or how to scale Jenkins. At this point, the biggest problem is that the book is over 5 years old and Jenki [...]

    7. This served well as a quick introduction to Jenkins. Even though I'm not using Jenkins directly, my team uses it and this was helpful as an overview. A lot of it was Java focused and we are not using Java, so I just skimmed or skipped those sections.

    8. It's very java oriented. We use jenkins to buils our c# projects. Learned about several build strategies and some nice plugins.

    9. Only book I know of that covers this subject. Probably can learn it without a book, but it's nice for reference.

    10. Would be a great book about using Jenkins for JAVA projects, unfortunately didn't give much information about other programming languages or platforms.

    11. Did a good job of covering the basics and the more advanced cases. It also seemed to cover how to use Jenkins with non-Java projects fairly well.

    12. Great Jenkins introduction.Covers all of the basic configurations, job, plugins, CVS etcGood book to start with Jenkins CI.

    13. Good reference on Jenkins, with description of all necessary steps to setup continuous integration, some of popular plugins, and some testing/deployment practices

    14. The Best book out there on Jenkins, very useful but you'll still need the resources online depending on which OS you are using to deploy it
