Look inside

Simplify application deployment at Dynomica, a web service for discovering new bands and artists, by developing a GitOps proof-of-concept microservice. You’ll help modernize traditional pipelines to a GitOps approach by deploying a cluster, installing Flux, and configuring a GitOps workflow to enable automated deployments. Then see GitOps in action as Flux detects and implements changes committed to Git, effortlessly reconciling your cluster to match the desired state defined in the repository. As you practice deploying with GitOps, you’ll discover how the reconciliation process enables automated, consistent deployments.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
