Advanced Jenkins for K8s (AWS EKS, EFS, PV,Docker in Docker)


Have you heard about Jenkins CI/CD pipeline before?


But you don’t know what’s the best way to set up Jenkins CI/CD pipeline for Kubernetes cluster?


Well, you don’t want to install Jenkins as a package on Linux server if you are deploying to K8s cluster.

In fact, there is a helm chart version of Jenkins which can be deployed as a K8s pod in k8s cluster.

Well, in this course, I will summarize why you would want to deploy Jenkins as a k8s pod.


By the time you finish this FREE course, you will be ready to jump onto my “Advanced Jenkins in K8s (Docker in Docker)” course!
