What is ArgoCon
ArgoCon (#ArgoCon) is designed to foster collaboration, discussion, and knowledge sharing on the Argo Project, which consists of four projects: Argo CD, Argo Workflows, Argo Rollouts, and Argo Events. This event is aimed at audiences that are new to Argo as well as providing depth to those currently using Argo within their organization. Connect with others that are passionate about Argo and interact with project maintainers. Learn from practitioners about pitfalls to avoid and best practices on how to adopt Argo in your cloud-native environment. Get inspired by and provide input to Argo leads on project roadmaps.
What is ArgoCD?
CNCF’s Intuit-developed ArgoCD is a declarative GitOps continuous delivery tool for Kubernetes that follows the GitOps pattern of using Git repositories as the source of truth for defining the desired application state. With its auditable and automated application deployment and lifecycle management, ArgoCD increases developer efficiency and agility, without compromising security.
What is GitOps?
GitOps is a way of implementing Continuous Deployment for cloud native applications. It focuses on a developer-centric experience when operating infrastructure, by using tools developers are already familiar with, including Git and Continuous Deployment tools.
The core idea of GitOps is having a Git repository that always contains declarative descriptions of the infrastructure currently desired in the production environment and an automated process to make the production environment match the described state in the repository. If you want to deploy a new application or update an existing one, you only need to update the repository - the automated process handles everything else. It’s like having cruise control for managing your applications in production.
