SHOW: 70

SHOW OVERVIEW: Brian talks with Alexis Richardson (@monadic, CEO @weaveworks) about the emerging concepts and technology behind “GitOps”. 



Topic 1 -
Welcome to the show. Tell us about your background both at Weave and your involvement in the CNCF.

Topic 2 - Weave really started evangelizing this concept of “GitOps”. For anyone that isn’t familiar, walk us through the basics building blocks.  

Topic 3 - Git becomes the CMDB (single source of truth, single source for compliance). Developers push code (Git > CI/CD). CI/CD system builds containers and deploys to Kubernetes. What assumptions does this model make about the underlying infrastructure operations? 

Topic 4 - Let’s talk about the separation of interests between the CI system and the CD system and how this impacts security. 

Topic 5 - Let’s talk about the role of Operators in a GitOps environment. Operators (today) tend to be more focused on stateful applications, so how does this link into developer code?
