On-Demand Webinar: Who’s Afraid of GitOps?

Brendan Cooper
Head of Marketing

GitOps is a Kubernetes configuration management practice originally defined by Weaveworks (RIP) and further popularized by OSS projects such as ArgoCD and Flux.

While GitOps brings the obvious benefits of IaC (like scalability and a single source of truth) to Kubernetes management, it also introduces several challenges. These challenges hinder many organizations from successfully switching to GitOps as their delivery model.

Ian Miell is an experienced cloud-native technologist with multiple GitOps implementations under his belt. Join him and Ant Weiss for this discussion of GitOps, its challenges, and how to tackle them for large-scale production use.
