WANdisco, a leading provider of Apache Subversion-based software and services for the enterprise, today announced a free training webinar scheduled for September 14 that will be offered jointly with CloudBees, the Java Platform as a Service (PaaS) innovation leader and world-renowned experts on the Jenkins continuous integration server. During this free one hour session hosted by leading industry journalist Tim Anderson, attendees will learn how to integrate Jenkins – the Subversion community’s most popular continuous integration (build) server with over 25,000 installations – with uberSVN, WANdisco’s new, free open ALM platform for Subversion that’s easy to install, easy to use and easy to extend.

uberSVN gives developers the freedom to integrate their favorite open and closed source apps such as Jenkins on a single platform that includes Subversion’s first-ever social coding environment and a full-featured  admin console that makes Subversion easy to deploy and manage.

“Now that a number of large enterprises are using uberSVN, we felt that the time was right to provide this training session with CloudBees,” said David Richards, CEO and President of WANdisco. “The Subversion community has clearly identified Jenkins as their first choice for continuous integration. This webinar will be invaluable to enterprise developers who want to deploy Jenkins with uberSVN to get the most out of Subversion for application lifecycle management.”

Webinar attendees will also learn how to configure Jenkins to watch for code changes in uberSVN Subversion repositories, automatically perform builds, initiate tests, notify users of results, and roll changes backward or forward.

While Jenkins is an open source project, CloudBees provides products that enhance Jenkins functionality as well as enterprise Jenkins support that can be purchased through the uberApps store - an online marketplace that takes the Apple App Store concept and applies it to enterprise software development tools for Subversion.  More than 300 plug-ins are also available to further expand Jenkins functionality. To download uberSVN and access Jenkins and the other products and services available through uberApps go to: www.uberSVN.com/download.

Jenkins, like all of the free and paid-for applications in the uberApps store, has been tested and certified to work with Subversion and uberSVN.  Extended product evaluations and long implementation cycles are a thing of the past.  Customers only deal with a single vendor – WANdisco – for all products and services provided by any combination of uberApps partners.

“We’re very excited about our partnership with WANdisco and the opportunity to make our Jenkins portfolio available with uberSVN through the new uberApps store,” said Sacha Labourey, Founder and CEO of CloudBees.  “This free training session will make the Subversion community aware of how powerful Jenkins is and how they can leverage it in their ALM environment.”

The webinar takes place on Wednesday, September 14 at 9am PDT. Attendance is free, but demand for this event will be high and space is limited.  Register now at: http://www.wandisco.com/training/webinars/alm-jenkins-ubersvn-platform.
