Free Tickets for the Jenkins Conf Live Stream!
I found out that the Oct 23rd Jenkins User Conference is giving away streaming access to their conference for free (with 128 slots currently remaining, but they'll increase that number if they need to, but they need to get registrations as early as possible to show if they'll need more bandwidth). CloudBees, a primary sponsor of the conference, has made streaming available based on the level of interest in the conference.
It's a pretty sweet deal for any developers who use, or are curious about Jenkins. It will run a little bit late into the night for the East coast and very late for Europe and Asia, but if you have time you should at least check out the keynote, which is being given by Jenkins creator Kohsuke Kawaguchi. Here's the entire 9am – 6pm PST schedule:
I would highly recommend tuning in for the lightning talks at 5:20pm PST. One of them is being given by a senior engineer at Netflix, where they use Jenkins extensively.
Of course, if you are in Palo Alto, CA, you should definitely consider going in person. The price is $80 ($54 with the promo code "BEE-JUC" )and you'll get some neat stuff. There's a waitlist though. The curse of popularity I guess...
Here's the sign up page one more time, in case you missed it.
