6:40-7:10: First Speaker
Title: GitOps - an evolution of DevOps in Containerization and the Cloud
Speaker: Bryce Frazier
Git, a tool used for version control, is not new. But as technology changes, how we leverage Git has evolved. With cloud and containerized orchestration platforms, we can leverage Git as a DevOps tool for faster time to market, reduction of feature costs, and increase audibility with a new paradigm, called GitOps. In this talk, we'll explore tools and processes where the concepts of development and operations converge, thereby empowering developers to deliver at faster speeds with higher levels of confidence.
