Java and Technology weblog
I became a Certified ScrumMaster today via the Scrum Alliance. I know certifications are worth very little, but the training and exam prep was definitely very useful and, more importantly, I’m implementing Scrum techniques on the new project I’m working on: Planning the sprint ahead, daily scrums, sprint reviews and trying to remove obstacles for the team.
I am a huge fan of the Jenkins continuous integration tool, using it not just for continuous integration, but also continuous delivery, server monitoring and performance testing.
Although using Jenkins is normally a breeze, I recently had a need to run several Jenkins jobs sequentially and it proved a little trickier than expected, so I thought worth posting about.
Basically, I wanted to call a database backup job before calling the deploy build job, which obviously shouldn’t be done in parallel. After a bit of research, I found a number of ways to have Jenkins run jobs sequentially.
I am at the Silicon Valley Code Camp at the moment.
I will try to post some notes on the various talks I attend below…
- Session 2: Easing into Agile
- Session 3: Building Better Tests in Java
- Session 4: What is Python?
- Session 1: Basics of Threading
- Session 2: Introduction to Grails
