Pre-Tested Commits in Jenkins - Kohsuke Kawaguchi at JAXconf

Kohsuke Kawaguchi, creator of Jenkins and architect at CloudBees, discusses how to use Jenkins to efficiently shift more workload from your laptops and computers to servers. By using "pre-tested commits" you can make changes safely so that your changes don't block others, run tests asynchronously, and avoid compounding errors intrinsic to large projects with numerous developers contributing to the repository. Advances in distributed version control systems (such as Git) made it possible to test every commit separately before it hits the team's main branch. This helps you keep the main branch more stable, and lets you get more values out of the CI server. In this session, Kohsuke look at the details of this technique, and how to make it work with your projects. It covers both Git and Subversion. Filming Courtesy of Marakana Tech TV
