Installing Jenkins on Google Cloud instance or on AWS EC2

Jenk­ins is a con­tin­ues deploy­ment tool, which helps you to build & deploy your project eas­i­ly, you just need to push your code to your code repos­i­to­ry, and then jenk­ins will take care of all stuff, it will pull your code to the appli­ca­tion serv­er & will run cus­tom com­mands like com­pos­er update etc , so that you no need  to wor­ry about deploy­ing code thats why its called as push to deploy. It comes with very easy to use GUI.
