Under the hood of Serverless Jenkins. Jenkinsfile Runner

There were significant changes in the Jenkins project over last year. It is still one of the most popular automation servers in the world, but it is not just a “server” anymore. In 2019 Jenkins is a universal automation engine, which actively evolves towards the new Cloud Native architecture and which can be used in any CI/CD flows. It can be used not only as a server, but also as a “serverless” single-shot execution. And it is not only about Jenkins X, but also about more classic usages.

In my talk I will present Jenkinsfile Runner - an engine which allows running Jenkins Pipelines in a single-shot container. I will show how it is used in Jenkins X, GitHub Actions and other services. And, finally, I will show how to package your own Jenkinsfile Runner images and run it in any environments, CI systems and Cloud providers.
