This past September I was selected as a speaker at PuppetConf 2014 and given the oppoortunity to talk about some of the patterns that we've developed to help run the Jenkins project infrastructure.
Overall the conference was pretty spectacular, a great opportunity not only to meet many of the folks I know on IRC but also a chance to meet up with people who are using my software and figure out what we could do better together.
My talk, embedded below, is much more of a case study than anything else. Prior to 2014 the Jenkins project infrastructure was doing okay but it wasn't something I enjoyed working on. After a helping hand from Puppet Labs, we came up with a workflow that I find much more enjoyable and resilient than our previous workflow.
