GitOps Essentials

Next generation application
delivery and operation

This 2 day workshop will introduce the concept of GitOps - “Fully managing applications and infrastructure using a Git-based workflow” and get you hands-on with popular tooling.

GitOps is a natural extension to Infrastructure-as-Code and Continuous Delivery focused on using Git as a single source of truth for your system.

Changes to infrastructure and applications are made declaratively through a Git repository, with an automated process which ensures the current state of your system reflects the state in the repo.

While GitOps is in early stages of adoption we foresee it becoming a standard for all Cloud Native-aspirational companies.


Who should attend?

Software developers, DevOps engineers, and architects wanting to understand GitOps and gain experience implementing it on a Kubernetes platform. Participants will gain a solid fundamental knowledge of how to approach GitOps.

What can I expect from the workshop?

In this workshop you will learn how to get started with GitOps. We’ll start by explaining the rise of GitOps and then dive into the principles and practises. You will then set-up and use a GitOps pipeline to manage a Kubernetes cluster. You will explore real-world use cases and have a chance to explore GitOps for yourself supported by an expert.
