This path is designed for software professionals or anyone interested in learning Jenkins or implementing Jenkins in their organization.


Expected Duration
145 minutes

Jenkins is a continuous integration tool that is used to streamline the task of performing application builds and deploys. Jenkins is open source and is Java based. It integrates with traditional Java build tools such as Apache Ant and Apache Maven. Jenkins is widely considered a DevOps tool. In this course, you will learn how to use Jenkins to build and continuously deploy applications. You will also learn about how Jenkins integrates with other DevOps tools.
