**Navigating unknown waters? Running your app on K8s doesn't have to feel that way**
K8s emerges as a market standard and cloud providers outdo each other in simplification of app provisioning based on K8s. However, everyone is talking about production ready K8s, but just a few people actually do it. K8s became a standard at SwingDev. We always take alternatives into account, but K8s is fit for many different application configurations. During the talk, we will show a zero to hero path and share our experience that will help you with deploying production ready applications to K8s on your own.

**What is GitOps? Introduction to an innovative, opinionated application delivery workflow with Flux & K8s**
The change spares no one—the DevOps movement is on the rise, pointing out that communication silos, insufficient automation and lack of clear, easily accessible insight into system state are the primary issues that modern software development companies should be tackling.

GitOps is a workflow developed by Weaveworks, it’s a goal making infrastructure management and application deployment as simple as submitting a pull request to Git repository. This talk will bring this concept closer to you, using Flux and K8s stack as an example.

**What will you learn during the workshop part?**
No matter if it's your first time with Kubernetes or you've got your feet wet before—our seasoned developers will guide you through the process of configuring an Azure account, showing the best tools to get things done quickly. Learn how to orchestrate containers, create your first cluster and deploy a working app. Understand the difference between the imperative and declarative way of managing your Kubernetes. Explore the real use cases with aspects like horizontal scaling, self-healing, and configuration management.
