Automation of all the repeatable tasks is nothing new. We've been doing it for years or even decades. But the technology changes, so do the tools and the processes we use in automation.

Today, we are practicing not only continuous delivery (CD), but also GitOps and progressive delivery. Our applications are running in Kubernetes and are designed around event-based decoupled architecture.

So, how do we automate everything in 2021? Which practices should we use, and which tools should we choose? How can we combine events with workflows, pipelines, GitOps, and progressive delivery using tools designed from ground-up to be cloud-native and Kubernetes-first?

We'll use Argo project (Events, Workflows & Pipelines, CD, and Rollouts) combined with SealedSecrets, Kaniko, and a few other tools in a hands-on demo.
