Mobile CI: Illustrated

Surprisingly, our device lab gets a lot of traffic. Many times this is in the form of a guided tour through the office for visiting clients or potential clients. The device lab is a regular stop even though many of our engineers rarely step foot in there. It is almost akin to taking guests on a tour of the server room. The difference is in this case, I've put effort into building an attractive display of all our connected devices. Beyond the display though, the task of visualizing the way in which the hardware on display fits into a Continuous Integration system like Jenkins is a tall order, even for technical people.

The other day I was enjoying some Ikea-related humor and it occurred to me that it would be cool to give the CI system the same treatment. So I give you Mobile CI: Illustrated a la Ikea assembly instructions.
