A Practitioners Guide to GitOps - Introduction, Principles and Implementation
Not so long ago, we had to remember lots of commands and their execution order to configure systems and infrastructure. With the rise of Kubernetes and Infrastructure-as-Code, we learned that it's easier to declare the desired state of systems and let other tools bring our intentions to the system. Finally, Git can be our best friend when it comes to storing and versioning our configuration. This talk starts with a short introduction to GitOps and common principles. To put it to practice we look at one specific GitOps implementation approach from the CNCF Sandbox Project Keptn. Together we walk through declaring the desired state for application delivery in Git, see how the GitOps operator translates that definition into tasks and how those tasks get executed by various tools to bring the desired state to life.
