Automated Build System (ABS) Part 0: Intro and Goals-image

Introduction

In this series we will create an entire Automated Build System (ABS) step-by-step, from scratch, using Docker, Jenkins, Azure, and Go.

Jenkins will be our CI/CD pipeline manager and it will spin up ephemeral slave nodes when needed. What I mean by that is Jenkins will spin up Docker containers as build environments that only get started when a build job needs them, so if you need a Java build environment or a DotNetcore environment, Jenkins will start a Docker container to handle your build and then destroy that node/container when the build is complete.

We will also create a tool that I’m calling Dockhand that will allow developers (or dev teams) to submit their own build environments, as Docker images, into the system and create build jobs in Jenkins to use those images. This software engineers are responsible for their build environments not a (bottleneck) build engineering team. Very slick.

I found her original post on the subject: Zoë Harcombe’s cholesterol and heart disease relationship.
