3.0 out of 5 stars A bit ho-hum 29 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book contains little more than the information than is available in the Jenkins online help - I was hoping it would give much more complex examples of real world usage of Jenkins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Jenkins Resource around! 17 Feb 2012
By Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a great resource for all levels of developers that utilize Jenkins. The book is not the end to end 'Bible' for Jenkins but it's a great resource that explains pretty much all the essential building blocks. I've read the book a couple times now and I have realized that I overlooked features for didn't fully grasp how powerful they were originally. It's also wonderful to resource to help train others team members. We keep a couple copies around the office now.

5.0 out of 5 stars A (very) good book for people who are looking for a CI solution. 23 April 2012
By Wanderlei Souza - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I used to use Hudson without reading anything about the product, just click, click, and UI obvious configuration. I decided to migrate to Jenkins and started reading this book. Wow! I figure out a lot of new things (specially some very good plugins) that helped me on my builds. Again, even if you already have an running CI solution this book can give you some cool ideas.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok for a basic understanding of Jenkins 7 Mar 2014
By Craig Pottinger - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a quick read and gives a fairly good understanding of the more popular plugins and setup for a Jenkins CI server(s). The book covered 90% continuous integration for maven/java projects, so be aware of that if you are planning to use other build tools/programming languages for your projects( the book does cursorily touch on using php and ruby but it's by no means definitive). That said, Jenkins isn't a difficult service to understand and book outlined as such in a concise way. I would recommend this book for someone who has no experience with Jenkins and would prefer an organized alternative to reading the online documentation. I won't give it 5 stars, however, because it's not a definitive book about Jenkins, but more beginning guide to integrate a Jenkins setup for your organizational needs.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worthwhile but out of date 30 Dec 2012
By Jim B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I’m glad I read it. The price was good. The book is a walkthrough a basic experience which I liked. But it was a little out of date so it took a lot of Googling to get through the exercise. I’d have enjoyed a little more depth or philosophical waxing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Automagically Delicious! 6 Sep 2012
By Lanette R. Creamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you have an agile team, if you do automated testing, if you use git or subversion, if you need to share code, if you work in software, or are an IT Girl, or an IT Guy, this book is a must buy.

Jenkins is the most awesome, free, flexible, productivity enhancing thing in the world. Free to download. Free to use, IF you can use it. However, you could waste boatloads of money with this free tool if you don't know what you are doing. Let me break down for you what usually happens at a company when an "Agile Transition" comes along.

1. Hire consultant who sets up awesome demo. Consultant says, "Here! It's Easy! Sets up Jenkins, shows you beautiful result using 7 different programming languages, Git, which your team may not use, and integrates it for you in a tool you don't own but that's ok because you are on the trial version.

2. Contract ends, and Consultant who set up whiteboard is no longer there. Your trial version runs out, or your Jenkins server goes down, and now you have NO ONE who knows what the heck is going on.

3. You panic. Try the backup. Find out it wasn't part of the demo setup. In fact, the demo isn't even likely set up for multiple users correctly! Your new tool you decided to go with isn't integrated with it. However, having had a taste of the awesome sauce that is a build on demand, no one wants to LIVE without their CI system (Jenkins build).

That is when you should buy this book. Why? Because everything you need is mostly already made and you don't have to manually remake it, but these guys are the guys who've DONE this stuff. They are the gurus you want to take advice from. Also, there is very minimal bullshennanigans in this book. I rarely fell asleep, and for a technical book that is high praise. So anyways, if you can't hire these guys are get the consultant who set this up in the first place, this book will help you. Anyhow, it helped me, and now I'm a Jenkins addict trolling for new plug-ins at all hours of the night.

If you don't know when Jenkins is, don't bother buying this book. If you don't understand this review, likely the book isn't for you.
