We developers really like code.
Code, being plain-text, can be version-controlled, versioned, and follow a traditional SDLC lifecycle.
For the longest time however, we were forced to live with having most of our Ci/Cd and server configurations live outside of our codebases, often at the mercy of infrastructure/operations teams.

With the evolution of DevOps comes the notions of constructs like IaaC (Infrastructure-As-A-Code), and with Jenkins 2.0, we can now manage our Jenkins jobs configurations as code!

In this session we will explore the concept of “Pipelines-As-A-Code”, including the DSL that Jenkins offers, and how we can use this to configure Jenkins jobs via simple, version-controlled Jenkins files. We will see how we can create Jenkins jobs by autodiscovering repositories, as well as when we branch our code to create releases.
