Weave Flux and the GitOps workflow are currently permeating the DevOps space. But the migration of a CI-driven project to a Git-driven one can be a daunting task. This talk takes you through a tangible migration strategy with real-world examples, pitfalls and a model of what your actual GitOps infrastructure could look like.
