1. What is Jenkins?

Jenkins is a Continuous Integration (CI) tool that allows code to be developed and tested almost immediately. This is continuously monitored by the CI server which verifies the newly created code. This removes a lot of burden for the testers and provides quicker integration and fewer wasted resources. In this Jenkins tutorial, you will learn all about the basic features of Jenkins and the master-slave architecture used in Jenkins.
