Managing infrastructure without pulling your hairs out with GitOps - Weaveworks

Managing infrastructure is complex, risky and tied into an organisation's processes and procedures. Operating fast and well is a constant challenge for developers, operators and system administrators. In this talk, Brice Fernandes from Weaveworks will talk about GitOps, an operational approach to manage infrastructure and IT systems using declarative configuration. We'll hear about the principles behind GitOps as well see a live demo of it in action both to manage applications and infrastructure. After this talk, you will be able to use a GitOps software agent to manage your application and change your IT systems with pull requests.

About the speaker: Brice fell in love with programming while studying physics and never really looked back since. He has a broad technology background that covers everything from embedded C to backendless browser apps using the trendiest javascript frameworks. He taught Game Development and Functional Programming online and founded his own education platform for developers before joining Weaveworks. He now spends his professional time helping companies make the most of Kubernetes.
