DevOps Playground London – Jenkins & Kubernetes

The 20th DevOps Playground took place at the ECS Digital offices on Bermondsey Street. The focus for the event was a hands-on demonstration of running a scalable Jenkins cluster on top of Kubernetes, provisioning pods on demand, containing a Jenkins slave image intended to execute a given pipeline.

The key points covered in this DevOps Playground were:

  • Custom Jenkins Docker image preinstalled with recommended plugins and more.
  • Creating Deployments and Services in Kubernetes.
  • Deploying a Jenkins master node to the cluster.
  • Configuring the master node to be able to provision containers.
  • Defining pipelines utilising the Jenkins Kubernetes plugin.

The event was a nice introduction to both tools, as well as it being a useful real-world scenario. The feedback from the attendees was very positive, with many of them not having much Kubernetes or Jenkins experience.

Overall, the event was a huge success and it was great to have the opportunity to meet many of you, and give back to the community.

We are looking forward to seeing you in May at our next meet-up; topic and dates to follow shortly!
