Talk Title:

"From GitOps to a scalable CI/CD pattern for Kubernetes"


GitOps is getting an increasing amount of attention as 'the way to do
CI/CD for Kubernetes'. Try to figure out an actual arrangement of
repositories and automated flows to implement such a pipeline at scale,
though, and you'll likely find that there are still many details to be
sorted out, gotchas to be puzzled over, and tradeoffs to be made.

Andrew will examine various aspect of what is often talked about as
GitOps and highlight the underlying principles, as well as how they
related to well-known practices that we are already familiar with, such
as source and compiled artifacts and infra-as-code.

He'll then use those to describe and demonstrate a CI/CD pattern for
Kubernetes that can be implemented with different tooling combinations
(including a "vanilla GitOps" approach), and talk about how to choose
the most appropriate setup for your scenario."
