Overview and update on CNCF Projects Flux and Flagger (Incubating), and Linkerd (Graduated)

About this event

Join us for this exciting event where you’ll get an overview and update on CNCF Projects Flux and Flagger (Incubating), and Linkerd (Graduated), then see the power of three when these projects are combined (in a live demo) to offer a robust and automated GitOps experience!

▶️ Flux is a collection of tools for keeping Kubernetes clusters in sync with configuration sources (like Git repositories) and automating updates to the configuration when there is new code to deploy. Flux is a CNCF Incubating Project.

▶️ Flagger is a progressive delivery Kubernetes operator and is part of the Flux Family of Projects. Flagger automates the release process for applications running on Kubernetes. It reduces the risk of introducing a new software version in production by gradually shifting traffic to the new version while measuring metrics and running conformance tests.

▶️ Linkerd is a service mesh for Kubernetes. It makes running services easier and safer by giving you runtime debugging, observability, reliability, and security - all without requiring any changes to your code. Linkerd is a CNCF Graduated Project.

📍 Date: Tuesday, September 28th @ 10 am PST to 11:15 am PST (1:00 - 2:15 pm EST)
