We, at ECS Digital, decided to kick off our 1st DevOps Playground Singapore in 2019 with the building of a Continuous Integration (CI) pipeline using Cloudbees Blue Ocean. The event was hosted at the Sandcrawler Building with the help of GovTech.
After forking the open source Jpetstore repository, we proceeded to setup a CI pipeline running a maven build with SonarQube testing as well as a push to JFrog Artifactory, stopping just shy of a full deployment due to time constraints.
Beyond minor hiccoughs brought about by formatting and updates beyond our control, the playground proceeded smoothly and was well-received by attendees.
We were successful in building the CI pipeline, showcasing the strengths of Blue Ocean’s intuitive UI and low barrier to entry. Attendees were shown the steps needed to inject Jenkins’ environmental variables and provided explanations as to why each step and tool were defined as such. The Continuous Integration process was completed without a hitch, with users able to view their generated artefacts in JFrog as well as scan results in SonarQube.
We had such a large turnout and we hope to see everyone again for our next Playground.
