To many dev teams, Jenkins is synonymous with continuous integration (CI), automating the mundane tasks of integration, test and build for projects – the very thing founder Kohsuke Kawaguchi created it for, in the underbelly of Sun and Oracle. However, as more organizations adopt Jenkins as their engine for continuous delivery (CD), broader teams with varying degrees of technical skills demand a more bespoke and succinct user interface. We talked to James Dumay, ‎Senior Product Manager at CloudBees and lead contributor to the Jenkins Blue Ocean plugin, about the need for Blue Ocean and what to expect from it in the near future.
