On a chilly November morning in 2020, it's GitOps Days, and we heard Alexis Richardson via Video Conferencing speak. Git allowed us to do Cloud-native development. It gave us the tooling for a distributed source control, continuous integration, container image distribution, and others.

The rate of development improved with Git. However, the one thing that Git did not give us is better operations. Git focuses on collaboration between developers and versioning, but it was never intended to help in operations. However, this was the case before GitOps.

GitOps gives you a mechanical, programmatic, automated way to operate. But why? Why would you want this new way to operate? Why does this matter?

Ok, before we dig deep into any answers, let's start with another question: How do you know your systems are in a correct state now?

If your auditors come to your office the next morning and ask if all your applications are running in your Kubernetes Cluster in a correct state now? How do you prove that?

In this episode, we will dive deep into GitOps and its raison d'etre.

We will answer questions you may have asked about GitOps, like the advantages and disadvantages of adopting it. We will also walk through the important patterns and security considerations in adopting GitOps.
