    Overview

    Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron.

    Tekton is a powerful yet flexible Kubernetes-native open-source framework for creating continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) systems. It lets you build, test, and deploy across multiple cloud providers or on-premises systems by abstracting away the underlying implementation details.
