GitOps: The past, present and future

Operations through Git is not new but now we the technology to realise what we always wanted. The GitOps pattern has matured over the years, from the initial definition to the major adoption by the community, and the arrival of Kubernetes and the controller/operator pattern has made it possible to adopt GitOps in practice.

Although we have come far, there is still more work to be done. This is why the OpenGitOps project was created in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, where we hope to define what it means to use GitOps and spread awareness.

This talk is aimed to explain the concept of GitOps, why we need it and how it can be implemented. It is based on the principles defined by the OpenGitOps project and is a vendor and platform neutral look at the operational model.

Preferred as a 30/45 minute session, and the target audience is everyone from developers, to operational engineers, to decision makers.
