Xeno Media lead developer Michael Porter was selected to present Automating Putting Jenkins To Work For You at Drupal Camp St. Louis, Saturday, Sept. 23. Michael is a seasoned speaker and an expert on automation and testing.

Michael will explain how can we use the power of Continuous Integration (CI) servers for offloading some of the repetitive tasks developers and software maintainers need to do on a daily basis. Running core and module updates, unit tests and reporting can be automated and communicated using tools he will outline in this presentation.

We chose Jenkins as a Continuous Integration Server because it is:

  • Well documented
  • Open Source
  • Widely Used
  • Extensible

In this session, Michael will demonstrate how to use Jenkins to automate:

  • DB backups
  • A multibranch Stage/Testing Server
  • Behat tests
  • Coding standards tests
  • reports
