Nice demo. But that printing sounds like a difficult (or at least more
expensive) thing to do. And would require more expensive paper or
cardboard, like you mentioned.
I think it would be easier/cheaper/more-foldable-and-pocketable on A5
paper (single-sided in colour). But then I have exactly zero experience
of printing something like this, so I could well be talking nonsense...
Anyway, the content looks good. The blue ball bullet points are
awesome. You could maybe move them further to the left to give a bit
more room on the right?
Probably "Fork Jenkins on GitHub: github.com/jenkinsci" isn't useful, as
not many people fork Jenkins itself -- they write plugins. Maybe just
put that GitHub URL in the last section with the other links?
I'd like to see some examples of plugins, as mentioning 600 plugins
without any context isn't super useful. e.g. "Git, SVN, IRC/email
notification, code analysis, EC2..."
I'm not really interested in mentioning a bunch of non-core stuff (e.g.
BuildHive and CloudBees), but I don't have big objections.
