What is Jenkins X?
Jenkins X is an open-source project to simplify Jenkins CI with fewer moving parts. It is the official container-native CI for Kubernetes, ending the need for Jenkins masters and slaves by leveraging Kubernetes cluster resources. Jenkins X also makes use of GitOps to automate all changes through your environments via Git to enable a self-healing system that accelerates continuous delivery by enabling you to safely make changes and get fast feedback without the lag of manual intervention.
What is Debian?
Debian is a free operating system ( OS ) for your computer. An operating system is the set of basic programs and utilities that make your computer run. Debian uses the Linux kernel (the core of an OS) along with thousands of software packages (also called 'packages') that are each distributed in a separate file. The packages contain the program code that does all the work, and are connected to each other in what is called a package dependency hierarchy . Each package depends on some smaller package or packages, which in turn depend on even smaller packages, and so on.
