In November 2019, ‘The Unicorn Project’ by Gene Kim has been released. The book focuses on the development part of the Unicorn project of Parts Unlimited which was introduced in the well-known book ‘The Phoenix Project’. I finally had the time to read it and share some thoughts about it.

In this post we are going to take a look at Jib, a tool from Google in order to create Docker images in an easy and fast way. No need to create a Docker file, no need to install a Docker daemon, Jib just runs out-of-the-box.

Do you want to experiment with Jenkins CI in a local setup? In this post we will setup a local Jenkins CI server, create a build job for a simple Spring Boot Maven project and push the created Docker image to DockerHub. It will be a setup for local experimenting only, but really handy if you want to try out a Jenkins plugin for example.
