The GitOps Journey - Schlomo Schapiro - Berlin DevOps Meetup 2021-11

Download to read offline

I will show why GitOps is a major waypoint in the journey from old-style Dev vs. Ops data center operations towards a truly automated hands-off operations future. GitOps is the technological core required for compliance automation, large-scale operations, and lowering the cost of compliance & governance as well as lowering the cost of internal tooling.

GitOps will give us a future, where we all take a step back, watch the bots do the admin job, and where we Dev, Ops, everybody work on improving the bots and invent new automation solutions.

Schlomo Schapiro is an Agile IT and Open Source enthusiast dedicated to advancing an agile mindset and a DevOps-orientated culture in IT. He works as Principal Engineer at Forto in Berlin, is author of several Open Source projects, conference speaker and regularly publishes blog and magazine articles.
