Imperative to Declarative: Building a GitOps Driven Unified Control Plane at Autodesk - Cole Duclos & Greg Haynes, Autodesk

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Autodesk has their sights set on accelerating developer productivity across their engineering organizations. To do so, they are doubling down on standards and building a common deployment platform to relieve their application engineers of the burdensome toil that comes with operating a secure and complaint cloud offering. What started as strategy to embed deployment best practices into a sequence of imperative pipelines has since transformed to a unified control plane strategy – harnessing the power of declarative GitOps. Come join Cole Duclos and Greg Haynes as they discuss Autodesk's evolutional journey from imperative pipelines to declarative GitOps systems as they seek a better future. This talk will cover: * What is a developer platform control plane and what problem does it solve. * What are the benefits of providing declarative interfaces driven by gitops. * What are the pitfalls in transitioning to this declarative design for a large organization.
