February Topic - Continuous Integration using Jenkins and Xamarin

In one hour, learn how to setup a Jenkins server to do CI (continuous integration). This will be a lab-style activity, meaning you should bring your laptop and be ready to follow along – learn by doing! We’ll setup Jenkins so that it triggers automatic builds of a “Hello, World!” Xamarin app from both Git commits and a daily timer; Jenkins will keep each build as an artifact for later retrieval.

Participants should arrive at the venue with the following items completed:

Install Visual Studio Community 2017 & Xamarin
• Install Visual Studio Community 2017 or better; be able to click File > New and build and deploy a Cross-Platform Xamarin.Forms app on at least Android
• Implies that Xamarin, Android SDK, etc. is installed and configured

Install Jenkins
• Install a Jenkins master on localhost or other virtual machine and completed the post-installation setup wizard
• Follow steps at https://jenkins.io/doc/book/installing
• Recommend not using Docker unless you’re proficient with it – I’m new to it and had troubles configuring Docker to allow Jenkins to see an internet connection
• Choose the “Install suggested plugins” option
• Setup the first administrator user account for accessing the Jenkins master, and then login;
• Install Git and setup a free account on https://github.com – we will each configure a public repository on GitHub for our Hello, World! app
