GitOps is the gold standard for managing and deploying Kubernetes applications. In this talk, we’ll show you how we use Helm and Argo CD to manage our deployments to a wide range of clusters and clouds.

Codefresh operates a global SaaS product in the cloud using Kubernetes. CloudPosse helps companies like PeerStreet, RMS, Sportech, and others migrate to Kubernetes. Between the two of us, we’ve deployed to every cloud and in almost any kind of situation. We’ve built an established, well-worn path for using the principles of “GitOps” to take advantage of Kubernetes declarative infrastructure in order to deploy more often, and with more reliability.

In this session, you’ll learn the principles of GitOps and how it solves both technology and organizational problems around CI/CD, Kubernetes application drift, and traceability through the engineering process.
