Jenkins build failure beacon


Thanks to Mike for sharing this project with us! See more here.

How do you notify a developer when a build fails in Jenkins without bombarding them with messages in Slack or email? Turn on a beacon to gather their attention. Great, now we have a light flashing away, thats awesome, how do we turn it off? Build a bot, let the bot handle it. The whole system has to bounce in and out of a secure network, a less secure IoT network and out on the public internet, what could go wrong. Finally this is devops so we gotta monitor and instrument everything we do, lets toss a little Splunk in there, and build a separate jenkins pipeline for updating and deploying the chatbot.

See the full tutorial here.
