    VSTS is my main use but I also dabble with AppVeyor occasionally.

    Anyone was able to set up CI enviroment with builds after pull requests using BitBucket and Jenkins without relying on that plugin that requires you to set up Cron jobs every few minutes?

    missing "everything is awful" and comedy option.

    2. Bloodthirsty sea pirates who ravaged northern Europe beginning in the 9th century.

    Oh I have nothing against it. But deploying Jenkins in a reproducible manner is not a problem I really wish to solve right now.

    Jenkins is "fine" but he tends to shit the bed more often than I'd like. He'll be choochin' along building shit and running tests and whatever else and then one day you notice, something held up an executor or worse. Couldn't clean up workspace, ran out of disk space (but didn't warn anyone beforehand) or you install some clusterfuck of plugins (because you need a handful of them just to use him) and something interferes with something and pbbbt, you're getting 50 lines of java errors on the plugins management page itself, so now you can't even disable the plugin that broke the damn thing. I'm not saying he's not stable, I saw him used as a replacement for cron, just ehhh...

    Like one thing I noticed is you better set a limit on the number of builds saved or you'll chew up gigs of storage saving completely useless information on old builds. There's no sane default (or at least there wasn't when I used it) so we had to go through every job and tell him to stop storing history to the beginning of time. That's kinda stupid.

    Still I voted for 'fine' because in the end I find him easy to use and gets the job done.

    Jenkins is fine. It's problem, like most of the applications it's age and lineage (The dank "Java is the OS to the Network Computer" Sun timeline) is its super verbose and really becomes someones job at any level of scale.

    These days I prefer to use a SaaS as my code is already in the cloud, so my build system should be as well. AS I mentioned, I use CircleCI. I find it flexible.

    Here is the more important question. How many of you are using Jenkins a Jenkinsfile checked in with your code vs. configuring through the GUI?
    meh

    We don't even have our Jenkins being backed up. So that's a no to Jenkinsfile

    Yes I know it's fucking terrible.

    Yep. It's not as crazy as it sounds. Someone was like "We need something better than cron" to run jobs. We had tried a couple of things... I want to say one was called.. cronus? And another... uhh... circus? But maybe circus did something slightly different? I guess it keeps things alive mostly. I never used it, but i'm sure it was somehow involved here. They both got met with lukewarm to negative receptions. Jenkins, otoh, gives you everything you need to trigger whatever you need on a schedule. Soblem prolved.

    The people who went ahead with this were the same guys who set up our mesosphere along with zookeeper setup for production, in house, on our own servers. They were generally amazing compared to what I see today and I wish I was working with those ninjas again.

    The only problem I have with my employer's Jenkins is that it's 100 person plus engineering org all using the same thing, so there's hundreds of damn jobs littering the place, all of them flat, nothing in team folders.
    The project I'm building is on one of the new pipeline servers or whatever they call it. Blue I think.
