Internship Projects/Mentors


Modernize OpenDaylight's CI pipelines and containers






OpenDaylight's CI [1.] jobs are presently using Jenkins-job-builder (JJB) [2.] with the entire job configuration maintained as code in the releng/builder [3.], releng/global-jjb [4.] and common-packer [5.] repositories. The CI infrastructure has around 2k+ jobs that are written using yaml/shell/python many of which need to migrate to CI pipelines. The pipeline job prototype should be able to do a complete lifecycle (from code changes picked up from merged/staged job to be deployed and tested on containers images (these images are equivalent of VM image instance - mininet, devstack, etc presently built on the infrastructure). The work requires updating the packer files to build containers and converting the JJB/yaml code to CI pipelines.
