Please share this newsletter to inform your team about mobility updates.
Legacy Jenkins Retirement
The migration of app builds from our legacy continuous integration build system (https://buildsrvpro.co.kp.org)to the new Mobile Delivery Pipeline platform (https://jenkins.mobilepipeline.kp.org) is now complete. The Chief Digital Office Mobility Center of Excellence team will be decommissioning the legacy build platform on
January 1st, 2020.
Mobile DevOps Pipeline
Did you know we built and are continuously improving a mobile-focused pipeline for building and delivering apps? The Mobile Delivery Pipeline (MDP) is the integration of various systems that build, assert quality and deliver mobile applications into one cohesive and easy to use pipeline. PR builds on the pipeline ‘shift left’ issues so they can be fixed as early as possible. View the demo to learn more about how the pipeline improves app quality, pull-request flow, and the automatic deployment of the MDK app to Crashlytics, which in turn, increases dev team productivity.
If you’re ready to get started, request onboarding for your mobile app program via the MCoE Service Desk.
