Welcome to Accelerate the Software Development Lifecycles

“I feel the need - the need for speed.” Many companies have chosen Kubernetes as it speeds up application development and delivery. So how can teams truly accelerate their software delivery? Can you avoid the steep learning curve altogether?

GitOps lets teams continuously deploy new versions to hundreds of EKS environments simultaneously. With a clear deployment pipeline any failures are instrumented and changes can be reverted immediately.

In this workshop we will cover: * Manage multiple EKS clusters, environments, workloads and teams with time saving cluster models * Install Flagger to increase deployment speed for advanced deployment patterns * Handle canary and progressive releases safely with rollbacks

GitOps - an operating model for cloud native

GitOps can be summarized as these two things: * An operating model for Kubernetes and other cloud native technologies, providing a set of best practices that unify deployment, management and monitoring for containerized clusters and applications. * A path towards a developer experience for managing applications; where end-to-end CICD pipelines and git workflows are applied to both operations, and development.

GitOps Operating Model

Weaveworks

Weaveworks makes it fast and simple for developers and DevOps teams to build and operate powerful containerized applications. We minimize the complexity of operating workloads in Kubernetes by providing automated continuous delivery pipelines, observability and monitoring.

Weaveworks’ mission is to minimize complexities in operating workloads and provide a developer centric operating model for cloud native applications. Our goal is to drive cloud native transformation for your developers and portability, flexibility, choice and stability for your business.

One of the first members of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Weaveworks also contributes to several open source projects, including Weave Net, Weave Scope, Weave Cortex, Weave Flux, Firekube and Flagger.

Weaveworks and AWS

Weaveworks is an APN Advanced Technology Partner and AWS Containers Competency Partner. In addition Weaveworks is the EKS certified Advanced partner that built eksctl.
