With the establishment of Jenkins Area meetup (JAMs), the Jenkins community has grown vastly all over the world. This growth has brought together novice, intermediate, to advanced users. Each level of users has a unique need for Jenkins knowledge and there isn’t enough Jenkins ‘educators’.
Jenkins Ambassadors are influential Jenkins enthusiasts who have the passion to share their Jenkins technical expertise with others. Ambassadors help to further the project by helping the community to understand how to use Jenkins and what makes Jenkins powerful.
Goal of this program
- Empower community leaders to talk, write, organize community building activities and or educate others about Jenkins.
- Cultivate the people whose efforts and commitment play an integral part in the growth of the Jenkins platform.
- Develop productive relationships with users and contributors
