Abstract of the talk:

Navigating the GitOps Landscape: A Deep Dive into the OpenGitOps Working Group

In the ever-evolving landscape of software development, the integration of DevOps practices and open source collaboration has become increasingly important. Enter the OpenGitOps Working Group, a collaborative initiative that aims to bridge the gap between these two domains, fostering innovation, efficiency, and seamless workflows.

This presentation explores the principles, goals, and impact of the OpenGitOps Working Group. We delve into the meaning of GitOps, a powerful paradigm that leverages version control as the single source of truth for infrastructure and application deployments. Through the lens of open source collaboration, we highlight how the OpenGitOps Working Group brings together industry leaders, experts, and enthusiasts to collectively advance the GitOps methodology. We will explore the key focus areas of the OpenGitOps Working Group, including:

1. Standards and Best Practices: The working group actively defines and promotes industry-wide standards and best practices for implementing GitOps, enabling organizations to streamline their development and deployment processes.

2. The relationship of GitOps to other technical practices: How does GitOps relate to other modern technology practices such as DevOps, Infrastructure as Code (IaC) or Configuration as Code (CaC)?

3. Certifications and current topics: What are the current topics of the working group and what will the Certified GitOps Associate be in the future.

4. Tools and Technologies: We explore the landscape of GitOps tools and technologies, assessing their strengths, limitations and potential synergies.

We are always looking for speakers! If you have an idea for a talk or just a short presentation, do not hesitate to contact us. If you are interested in hosting one of the next meetups and your employer's or organisation's office, please let us know as well!
