Jenkins User Conference Israel

July 1st, 2012

I’ll be visiting Israel this week, for Jenkins User Conference in Herzliya. I think this is my 3rd time visiting there, and I always enjoyed my visit and people over there (it really is an interesting place in many ways that everyone should visit once!) If you live in Israel, you can still register for the event!

You can see the planned talks, but there’ll be a lot of good “show and tell” talks where seasoned users share their experiences and setups to others, as well as more “emerging technologies” kind of talks, where people can get the idea of what’s cooking.

I’m planning to do a talk that contains a little bit of both; a bit about features that I developed for Jenkins that I use myself (some with my CloudBees hat on), then more about what the community has been working on in the core lately, and what I’d like to work on in near future.

It never ceases to amaze me that this piece of software called Jenkins has grown so much that we have 100s of people using it everywhere we go. Looking forward to meeting you all, and don’t forget to demand Jenkins stickers from me!

The Butler’s Service: Promotion for Jenkins User Conference in Paris

April 4th, 2012

We have just increased our enrollment capacity for the Jenkins User Conference (JUC) Paris, to be held on April 17th. The enthusiastic response to our first-ever Paris JUC has been terrific – and we want to get everyone there! The learning, networking and connecting that occurs within the Jenkins community at JUC is great to see. I saw it in spades last fall in San Francisco and it was terrific. I want every Jenkins user who is able to experience JUC to do so.

Since Mr. Jenkins, our iconic butler, and I are traveling to every JUC conference this year – all six of them – we have worked up a little scheme, with the folks from our sponsor CloudBees, to get YOU there, too.

Here is the deal. Jenkins and I are offering a special Butler’s Service promotion for JUC Paris. Ticket prices recently increased to the full conference price of €206, from a previously discounted rate of €104. The registration fee is needed to cover the cost of the conference, but we realize this can get in the way of people trying to attend. As a compromise, on this Thursday and Friday, 5-6 April, we will reduce the ticket price to the lower advance registration special pricing that was in effect. So on Thursday and Friday, you can still register for JUC Paris at the lower €104 price. (For anyone who paid the full conference price, we will refund the difference.)

Let Your Friends and Colleagues Know About This Special Offer!

To experience what JUC is like, watch the highlights video from our San Francisco conference. It will give you a feel for the quality of our speakers, the learning – and, yes, the fun that went on!

We have a lot to share with you on April 17. In addition to all of the great sessions we are offering, you’ll get to see many developers of the plugins you’ve been using (some of whom even I haven’t met before in person!), and there will be some exciting updates and other news to share about our favorite continuous integration platform. You will want to be there to hear and see it all, first hand.

I hope to see you on April 17 in Paris – be sure to sign up by end-of-day, Friday, and take advantage of this great deal served up by the Butler!

Jenkins User Conferences 2012

February 28th, 2012

As a result of the success of the Jenkins User Conference last year in San Francisco, this year CloudBees and other sponsors are planning 4 Jenkins User Conferences around the world. Yup, that’s right — four!

Making events like these successful would be a win for everyone, so I’d like to encourage you to …:

Register to attend

If you are in the greater Paris or NY City metro areas, sign up now! You will experience lots of great learning opportunities and further your Jenkins knowledge. And perhaps more importantly, you’ll get the chance to connect with other Jenkins users and learn about the latest developments in the Jenkins project. I always love watching the community interact – we all learn from each other and on so many occasions, I have seen a Jenkins user have an “Aha!” moment in conversation with another Jenkins user. There’s something magical about meeting face-to-facet that you just can’t replace any other way.

Dates for the JUC conferences in the first half of 2012 are:

  • Paris — April 17: Early Bird discounted registration (€50) ends 18 February

  • New York City — May 17: Early Bird discounted registration ($54) ends 25 February

  • Registration includes all sessions, lunch, a social/networking hour at the end of the day and a FREE Jenkins t-shirt (a hot commodity at the JUC last October)

  • Two more conferences will be scheduled later in the year in San Francisco(Sept) and Antwerp (Nov), and there’s a planning going on for one in Tokyo — stay tuned for dates.
Apply to speak

Share your Jenkins knowledge with the community. The quality of the speakers was the most highly praised aspect of JUC 2011. If you’ve been writing plugins, tell the community what those are and meet people who use your plugins, which is quite a rewarding experience. If you’ve been using Jenkins in interesting ways, tell the community about it, and through the feedback you’ll learn just as much as they would. Do it fast though — the deadline for Paris is February 24th and for New York is March 16th.

Sign up to sponsor

If you can, consider sponsoring the events. If you feel your organization has benefitted from Jenkins, now’s your chance to give back to the community… and at the same time get some great visibility for your company.

 

If you still need more convincing about JUC, watch the highlights video from last year’s conference. Looking forward to seeing you!

My take on Jenkins User Conference

October 13th, 2011

Last week, we had our first ever Jenkins User Conference. More than 30 talks have been proposed (of which we were only able to accomodate 10 or so), 7 companies had helped pay for the event, and more than 250 people attended (out of 400 people registered.) People came from all over the world, from Japan, Korea, Australia, Europe, and so on. One of them even told me that he primarily came from Sweden for JUC, and being able to go to JavaOne was a nice extra. That’s saying something!

For me, to see the project I started 7 years ago to come this far, it was a rather special day. I was able to talk to many people during the day, most of the talks were quite good, and I enjoyed every bit of it. I hope other people felt the same way.

I’ve done the keynote that discusses the current state of the Jenkins project, and the progress we’ve made in the last 8 months since the divorce drama. The slides can be seen below, and I belive the recording will be posted online later.

Thank you for everyone who came, and thank you to those who made this event possible (especially Alyssa, Lisa, and Heidi who did the real hard work of organizing the event and taking care of the logistics.)
There was interest in doing another one in Europe. I certainly hope it would happen!

Calling for your participation in Jenkins User Conference

August 22nd, 2011

By now, you are surely aware of the Jenkins User Conference (JUC) that will be held the Sunday before JavaOne – October 2 – at the Marines’ Memorial Hotel in San Francisco, starting 9:00am PDT. This is a major milestone for the Jenkins Community – our first ever User Conference!

The Jenkins community needs to participate in JUC – certainly as an attendee, but also in supporting the organization and promotion of the Conference. Several vendors are helping to organize this first conference, but I think it’d be good for everyone if this is a community-driven event, and for that the Jenkins Community must play a major role, too.

To that end, I’d like to ask everyone to do the following to support JUC:

  • Register to attend. After all, it’s a free event with lots of useful contents!
  • Speak. People often incorrectly think that they need to be a project insider to be “qualified”, but that’s not the case. Lots of users want to hear about how other fellow users are using the software. So please tell us your showing off how you use Jenkins, clever ways you combine various pieces, technical/organizational challenges you faced, an so on. There are some great suggestions for potential topics on the JUC web page.
  • Recruit. If you aren’t comfortable speaking, please recruit someone else you think has an interesting Jenkins-related topic to present to the Community.
  • Promote the Conference. Even if you can’t come, please Tweet about it, re-Tweet posts you see from the @jenkinsconf Twitter account to your followers, email your friends, post to Facebook, and Like the JUC posts already there. If you paste in the JUC web page URL to your Facebook post, it will automatically pull in the cool Jenkins image we created for the conference. All of these things are easy to do and they really make a difference in getting the word out!
  • Sponsor the Conference. Sponsors are actively being recruited. One of the ways companies can give back to the Jenkins project that they’ve benefited from is by sponsoring JUC. Helping the project flourish protects your company’s investment in the use of Jenkins. All sponsorship levels also defray the costs of the Conference, thus keeping it free for attendees. Maybe your company would consider sponsoring? Hit up your favorite vendor to do so, too!

Registrations are coming in daily. So far, we have about 80 attendees, so please keep them coming. If you haven’t registered, register soon before the seats fill up. Making the event successful opens up many interesting options (like organizing other events in the future, etc), and that way it benefits the community as a whole, not to mention continuing to increase the Community’s knowledge and making Jenkins an even better platform in the process.

I look forward to seeing you there – as an attendee, a speaker, and/or a sponsor! We’ll have some more exciting things to announce in the coming weeks, so stay tuned!
