GitOps Fundamentals Course Overview

GitOps Fundamentals Course Overview

The GitOps Fundamentals course is designed to educate learners on the principles and practices of GitOps, an operational framework that takes DevOps best practices used for application development, such as version control, collaboration, compliance, and CI/CD, and applies them to infrastructure automation.

Module 1 introduces GitOps, explaining its definition, use cases, and the advantages and disadvantages of adopting this methodology. Module 2 dives into the basics of Argo CD, an essential tool in the GitOps ecosystem, covering installation, application creation, and synchronization. Module 3 extends the usage of Argo CD, exploring its reconciliation loop, application health monitoring, sync strategies, secret management, and advanced deployment techniques with Helm and Kustomize. Finally, Module 4 addresses progressive delivery concepts, discussing Argo Rollouts, blue/green deployment, canaries, automated rollbacks, and integration with Argo CD.

By completing this course, participants can work towards obtaining a GitOps certification and gain comprehensive GitOps training that will equip them with the skills necessary to implement GitOps practices effectively in their organizations.

Course Prerequisites

To ensure that participants can fully benefit from the GitOps Fundamentals course, the following are the minimum prerequisites:


  • Basic understanding of version control systems, with an emphasis on Git, as GitOps heavily relies on Git workflows for managing infrastructure and application code.
  • Familiarity with command-line interface (CLI) tools and basic shell commands, as the course will likely involve interacting with software through the CLI.
  • Knowledge of software development or IT operations concepts, which will help in understanding the use cases and benefits of GitOps.
  • Some exposure to containerization technologies such as Docker, as GitOps is often used in the context of container orchestration.
  • Awareness of Kubernetes basics, since Argo CD and Argo Rollouts are tools specifically designed for Kubernetes environments and the course involves hands-on exercises within a Kubernetes cluster.
  • Understanding of Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) principles, as GitOps is an evolution of these practices.

Please note that while having advanced knowledge in these areas is beneficial, the course is designed to cover the fundamentals of GitOps, and therefore only a basic level of prior knowledge is required. The course aims to build upon these foundations to help learners understand and apply GitOps principles effectively.
