ArgoCD Odyssey: Navigating from Basics to Brilliance

Room “Malen” / 1st floor

GitOps has been around for a few years now, and available tools have matured. With ArgoCD, a single CNCF-graduated project provides a UI, CLI, and many advanced features for templating, customizations, and multi-cluster operations. But which aspects are great, and which are just noise or nice to have?

In this workshop, attendees will catch a glimpse at different strengths and weaknesses of ArgoCD and apply them hands-on in interactive labs, enabling them to make up their own minds.

In bite-sized sections, topics like ArgoCD’s architecture and first steps will be covered as well as the utilization of the project’s CLI and more advanced deployment scenarios.

By the end of the session, terms like ‘projects’, ‘application sets’, or ‘app of apps’ won’t be mysterious concepts anymore, but first-hand experiences.

Attendees may take their clusters home with them. 😉

Prerequisites for this workshop:

This workshop is aimed at GitOps beginners: If you bring a notebook with a GitHub Account, you're good to go!

However, as ArgoCD builds on top of Kubernetes and Git providers, it would be great if you have a basic understanding of the following tools and/or concepts:

  • Kubernetes and kubectl

  • Git

  • the Linux commandline ext  

Bring your laptop! 

Number of participants: 20 participants max
