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 Ruby?
Ruby is not just a programming language, but an entire philosophy about programming. It makes programming fun, productive, and rewarding. Most programs consist of code that needs to be organized into functions. And so most Ruby programs consist of classes and modules containing useful functions for interacting with the real world, operating on text, working with objects, creating GUIs, doing system administration tasks, building web applications… you name it. Ruby is at its heart a toolkit for accessing existing libraries like OpenSSL and providing something like Visual Basic style syntactic sugar to make working with them fun.
