What we're about

Since February 2017, this group meets to discuss your burning questions about microservices, Kubernetes, GitOps, container management, visualization, and security, and much more; from intro topics to advanced discussion.

For GitOps, we primarily help users with Flux, a graduated project in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (and its subproject Flagger). This means that the project has met the foundation's scrutiny for sound design, security, user growth, longevity and more.

Enterprise users and customers already trust Flux and Flagger for their app deployments and infrastructure management. You can use Flux and Flagger open source, or through providers such as Weaveworks, AWS, Microsoft, D2iQ, and more.

You can find monthly updates on the Flux Blog and join the conversation on the Flux GitHub Discussions Page.

Check out ourYouTube Channel and ourYouTube Playlist Weave Online User Group for previously recorded sessions.

Flux Graduation AMA
December 7, 2022 at 12:00 UTC

Join us for this very special Flux Community Meeting to celebrate Flux's Graduation in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation!

What does graduation mean? It is the highest level in the CNCF, which means that Flux (and its subproject Flagger) has met the foundation's scrutiny for sound design, security, user growth, longevity and more.

Enterprise users and customers already trust Flux and Flagger for their app deployments and infrastructure management. You can use Flux and Flagger open source, or through providers such as Weaveworks, AWS, Microsoft, D2iQ, and more.

Flux maintainers, advocates, contributors, end-users and community members will all join in the celebration and be available to answer all your questions!

# Shift Deployment Security Left with Weave GitOps & Upbound’s Universal Crossplane

-----------------------------------------------------

## 8 am PT | 11 am ET | 4 pm GMT

-------------------------------------
Daniel Mangum, Principle Software Engineer, Upbound
Paul Curtis, Solutions Architect, Weaveworks
---------------------------

## Please register in advance: https://go.weave.works/webinar-upbound-shift-deployment-security-left.html

------------------------------------
Customers need to build, deploy, and manage their internal cloud platforms while ensuring security and resiliency for their cloud-native applications. In doing so, they can successfully manage releases and shift security left through trusted delivery using Policy as Code.
In this session, we’ve partnered with Upbound to showcase how to effectively manage application delivery while maintaining a high level of security using Weave GitOps and Upbound. Managing a stateful application deployment with a relational database, Weave GitOps can recognize if there is a policy violation and correct it before deploying the application. This is all made possible with Weave GitOps and Upbound’s Universal Crossplane. Using familiar Git workflows, Weave Policy-as-Code enables application engineers to quickly deliver new features safely.
For joining us live you'll be entered into a drawing - one lucky attendee will win a gift card! Terms and conditions apply.

Join us as we demonstrate the scenarios where:

  • All changes to application configuration are managed through Git workflows
  • Upbound’s Universal Crossplane allows you to build, deploy, and manage your cloud platforms
  • GitOps provides an extra layer of security by removing the need for direct access to Kubernetes clusters
  • Policy-as-Code guarantees security, resilience and coding standards compliance

## Accelerating Hybrid Multistage Delivery with Weave GitOps on EKS

-----------------------------------------------------

## 9 am PT | 12 pm ET | 6 pm CET

-------------------------------------
Darren Madams, Solutions Architect, Weaveworks
Rama Ponnuswami, Senior Containers Specialist (EKS), AWS
---------------------------

## Please register in advance: https://go.weave.works/Webinar-AWS-Accelerating-Hybrid-Multistage-Delivery.html

------------------------------------
Many companies have chosen Kubernetes as it speeds up application development and delivery. While grappling with Kubernetes can be a daunting task on its own, managing multiple clusters across hybrid cloud environments without structure makes that task even more difficult.

Weave GitOps lets teams continuously deploy applications and updates to hundreds of EKS environments simultaneously with ease. With a clear deployment pipeline, any failures are instrumented and changes can be reverted immediately. This defined approach allows us to extend the same consistent tools to EKS Anywhere to help bring the same success beyond the cloud.

Join Darren Madams, Solutions Architect at Weaveworks and Rama Ponnuswami, Sr. Container Specialist at AWS, as they walk through accelerating multistage delivery using GitOps. If you already have EKS-A, you are ready to automate the release of multistage delivery across all of your platforms. Whether you are moving workloads from on-prem to cloud, looking to decrease costs over, or simply looking to improve the availability or performance of your application, we can help you learn how best to manage your entire environment.

In this Webinar, we will cover:

  • GitOps methodologies that apply to all EKS products across cloud and on-premise

  • Consistent cluster creation and management across Kubernetes hybrid infrastructure using Templates

  • Managing multistage deployments using Weave GitOps Pipelines for EKS and EKS-A using a single UI dashboard

  • Progressive Delivery to ensure successful rollouts in a secure controlled manner
