Start thinking about your development pipeline as a mission-critical application.


  • Techniques for implementing code-driven infrastructure and CI/CD workflows using Jenkins, Docker, Terraform, and cloud-native services
  • Building and deploying a Jenkins cluster from scratch
  • Writing pipeline as code for cloud-native applications
  • Automating the deployment of Dockerized and Serverless applications
  • Containerizing applications with Docker and Kubernetes
  • Deploying Jenkins on AWS, GCP, and Azure
  • Managing, securing, and monitoring a Jenkins cluster in production
  • Key principles for a successful DevOps culture
Pipeline as Code is a practical guide to automating your development pipeline in a cloud-native, service-driven world. You’ll use the latest infrastructure-as-code tools like Packer and Terraform to develop reliable CI/CD pipelines for numerous cloud-native applications.

About the technology:

Treat your CI/CD pipeline like the real application it is. With the Pipeline as Code approach, you create a collection of scripts that replace the tedious web UI wrapped around most CI/CD systems. Code-driven pipelines are easy to use, modify, and maintain, and your entire CI pipeline becomes more efficient because you directly interact with core components like Jenkins, Terraform, and Docker.

About the audiobook:

In Pipeline as Code you’ll learn to build reliable CI/CD pipelines for cloud-native applications. With Jenkins as the backbone, you’ll programmatically control all the pieces of your pipeline via modern APIs. Hands-on examples include building CI/CD workflows for distributed Kubernetes applications, and serverless functions. By the time you’re finished, you’ll be able to swap manual UI-based adjustments with a fully automated approach!

About the listener:

For developers familiar with Jenkins and Docker. Examples in Go.
