They provide enterprise testing on the codes, design, develop, and test technical solutions & components for businesses. Jenkins developers build code that adheres to app requirements, perform software analysis, and collaborate with other members of the software development team to verify that application servers are accurate. The primary responsibilities in Jenkins developer’s job are as follows –

  • Software built using build systems such as Gradle and Maven.
  • Automated testing using test frameworks such as Nose2, PyTest, Robot, Selenium.
  • Run test scripts (using Windows Terminal, Linux shell, etc.)
  • Get test results and perform post-processing actions such as printing test reports
  • Run test scenarios with different combinations of inputs for test coverage Improve

How to become a Jenkins developer?

The time taken to master Jenkins is determined by whether or not you are already familiar with Java. Jenkins should take you only a month to learn if you already know Java. According to several software professionals, Jenkins has a steep learning curve. It will take you two to three months to learn Java if you are not already familiar with it. In Jenkins, there are numerous ways to achieve things, and it's a language that encourages creativity and flexibility. If you're an experienced programmer, and especially if you're familiar with Java, this can be quite useful. Working with a language that has multiple ways of achieving the same thing can be tough if you are just getting started with programming. As you begin to study Jenkins, here are some big-picture steps to consider:

  • Experiment with the CI/CD process. Explore the Jenkins in your browser before installing everything you need for Jenkins on your PC.
  • Investigate the Jenkins installation procedure. It is rather simple to install everything you need to start creating code in other languages, such as Python, this is not the case with Jenkins. You must first install JDK and add environment variable JAVA_HOME pointing to the location where JDK 8 is installed.
  • Download and install the updated and stable version of Jenkins on your PC
  • Make use of the various resources accessible to you. Once you've set up your Jenkins, use features like pipelines, Jenkinsfile, Syntax, and much more.
