We’re holding an impromptu educational hackathon on Sat 28th Nov at iCentral.

We’re going to be covering some educational stuff around Puppet, Docker, Jenkins, CD and some automated testing that you can apply on your own laptops.

Pre-installing some software will speed up the start of the session. Please can you install the following….

  1. Vagrant


Please can you familiarise yourself with the very basics, and make sure that you have download the following box.
e.g. mkdir blah;cd blah;vagrant init
...then change this line... = "base"
 FOR = "puppetlabs/centos-7.0-64-puppet-enterprise"
 Save...then `vagrant up` will automatically download and cache it for your future reuse.
  1. Docker

OSX / Windows – install Docker toolbox” and on linux – just install Docker.

  1. Jenkins

After installing Docker....
i) get your Jenkins/Docker installed

$ docker pull jenkins

ii) setup/install jenkins (+ plugins) ??  probably want git/git-client

iii) setup/install Jenkins Job Builder (JJB)

For BastionLinux:
yum install python-jenkins-job-builder

For everyone else:

$ pip install jenkins-job-builder
