GitOps Days 2022

The Flux Community is proud to play a central part in the upcoming GitOps Days event. In a free two-day event we will join in and all learn from Flux maintainers, adopter use-cases, end-user stories and integrators who use Flux to power their GitOps offerings.

The event is a testament to what we as a community have accomplished together, how GitOps as a best-practise has evolved and to the general growth of the ecosystem.

We hope you will join us, as the event is a lot of fun, a great way to get to know people and get inspired.

GitOps Days 2022 is a free 2-day online event on June 8-9, 2022.

This is THE event for your GitOps journey! Getting started? Taking GitOps to the next level? We’ll cover all of the steps for your success!

The event will run from ~7:00 am Pacific Time to ~3:00 pm PT each day as a free online event.
