Using a Jenkins job consisting of a python script and a groovy script, you can trigger events when a build is in the Jenkins build queue. For example, when something gets put on the build queue, you can trigger the creation of AWS Instances to create a slave and execute the build. It is a DIY replacement for the EC2 plugin, which some customizable added benefits.
Alex Gray (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alexgrayii/) has been the "Jenkins Master" for various companies for the last 6 years. Before moving to North Carolina from Boston, he and his family took a year off to scratch some things off of their bucket lists (canoeing in the North West Territories, backpacking across Thailand, living in France, just to name a few). He now has a 4-year-old who loves camping as much as he does.
Bhavani Rao’s first job out of college was as a mainframe programmer in Chicago. Since then, he has taken a detour with roles in manufacturing, telecommunications and entrepreneurship before coming back to the light with marketing roles in the software industry. He is currently a senior product marketing manager at CloudBees, where he helps organizations adopt and realize benefits from continuous delivery solutions.----
