Android Continuous Integration with Docker and Jenkins [Video]

More Information
  • Inspect your release builds (and the usual automatic on-commit builds) effortlessly with Docker.
  • Create a quick, consistent, and reliable CI solution for all your UI testing woes
  • Build a CI system to support multiple builds—entirely in separate consistent environment
  • Tailor Docker to meet your specific CI build needs
  • Work on multiple projects and let your CI make sure they all work, rather than just the one that you’re working with right now

As an Android developer, you feel a strong need for a hassle-free CI environment; moreover, you need a cloneable environment, especially for your UI tests, which need to be run on an Android “device". This course will show you how to create a fully functional CI using container technology; it lists all the problems you'll encounter and provides you with the corresponding solutions and detailed explanations. Later it will tell you how to setup scalable Jenkins nodes which enables parallel building, leaving you with no rework and no headaches at all. What if you have different hardware—maybe Linux machines or Mac computers? It works everywhere. You want your CI fast, stable, and lightweight, and preferably a free solution? No problem, you’ll be able to achieve your dream CI with Docker and scale it to all your systems by the end of this course.

Style and Approach

This course follows a hands-on approach with interesting and illustrative examples and clear explanations to help you build and set up CI on your Android projects efficiently using Docker.

  • Build a fast, consistent, and dependable solution for Android projects. In an Agile environment, where you expect to be delivering working software every 2-4 weeks, this hands-on course will make it easy for you to inspect your Android projects on every commit.
  • Most organizations would love to stop wasting money on third-party CI and instead let all their apps utilize Jenkins as the main CI tool. Or out of consideration for confidentiality, they would rather prefer in-house hosting solution.
  • Your team is scaling, with more and more engineers, which results in parallel build execution triggered by frequent code commit pushes. This course will help you resolve build bottlenecks.
  • With this course, your entire environment will be dockerized and super-easy to deploy and scale.
