- [Instructor] All right, congratulations on completing this learning path!!

We hope you've found this content both informative and engaging. 

Before we finish, we'll provide a quick recap of the concepts we've covered. 

In the first course, Jenkins CICD Intro, we provided you with an introduction to using Jenkins to automate your own build pipelines. In this course, we reviewed the associated terminology often used when working with Jenkins. We then demonstrated how to setup and configure basic build pipelines and how to manage and maintain build artifacts. 

You were then provided with the first of four hands-on labs. In this lab, you created a Jenkins CICD pipeline with SonarQube integration, which enabled you to integrate static code analysis into a pipeline and see firsthand the benefits of doing so. 

In the second lab, you created a Jenkins CICD pipeline with Artifactory integration, which enabled you to integrate Artifact Management directly within a pipeline and see again, firsthand, the benefits of doing so. 

In the next course, Jenkins CICD Advanced, we provided you with a deep dive into many of the more advanced areas of Jenkins, demonstrating options to scale out the Jenkins build infrastructure, using Docker containers for building and testing, and highlighting the new Blue Ocean pipeline-centric user experience. 

In the third lab, you created a Jenkins CICD pipeline, which was used to compile a Java servlet web application integrated with Splunk-based application logging capabilities. The resulting build artifacts were then deployed into a Tomcat servlet engine-based Docker image. 

In the fourth and final lab, you created a Jenkins CICD pipeline to publish build results into Jira, which enabled you to integrate automated build ticket management into your workflows and again, to see firsthand the benefits of doing so. Okay, so that brings this learning path to a close and again, congratulations on completing it. 

If you haven't done so already, we highly recommend you perform the assessment exam. This will give you an idea of which areas you might need to continue or review. Please feel free to contact us at if you have any questions and/or comments. 

Again, congratulations on completing this learning path!! 

You're now well and truly ready to build rock-solid enterprise-grade cloud native applications at scale!!
