GitOps is getting an increasing amount of attention as 'the way to do CI/CD for Kubernetes', but turning the idea into a working implementation is tricky. We'll examine various aspect of GitOps, highlight underlying principles, and describe and demonstrate a tool-agnostic CI/CD pattern for Kubernetes that can be scaled and adapted to different technical and organizational scenarios.

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."
