Tools as Code : DevSecOps on Auto-pilot

The worst kept secret to success in our industry is speed, resiliency, and security. The multitude of tools available to help master the techniques of producing best in class software can put us into a maintenance overdose. Luckily for us, most of these tools today are now packaged as Docker containers opening an opportunity for us to rapidly set up and orchestrate their setup using Kubernetes. Using a gitOps approach, we have found a way to neatly connect a CI/CD process for setting up, maintaining, upgrading and tearing down these applications using ArgoCD and Terraform. Follow us on a guided tour of how Tooling at Scale can easily be achieved for small and large organizations.
