Infrastructure and applications running in Kubernetes clusters are based on a plethora of "resources". You can manually create and maintain deployments, pods, services and ingress resources, but may soon loose track of your configuration. Fortunately, there’s an alternative way to manage your Kubernetes cluster – the GitOps way.
GitOps is a way of managing your cluster so that the whole system is described declaratively and version controlled. An automated process makes sure that the resources in the cluster match the desired state defined your Git repository. Flux (https://fluxcd.io) is an Open Source solution which automates this task.
Given that you have some basic idea about Kubernetes (or don’t mind shrugging at a few nitty-gritty details during the talk), I’ll show you, how you can control applications and infrastructure in Kubernetes using Flux and Helm.
