Jenkins to Tekton & ArgoCD: Shift Your Continuous Delivery to Kubernetes
About this talk
Jenkins is the most popular Continuous Integration (CI) tool in the world, and many people have tried to extend Jenkins to handle Continuous Delivery. But Jenkins was not designed to build and deploy changes - especially at scale.
The webinar will cover:
The limitations of the legacy CI/CD platforms
The advantages of Gitops?
How to simplify the adoption of Tekton and ArgoCD?
How to smoothly migrate to a Cloud Native CI/CD Platform?
Modern microservice architectures require stable/reliable multi-environment CI/CD automations. There are a lot of technologies addressing the need of CI/CD solutions. However, traditional solutions tend to be rigid and resource hungry. Tekton is a flexible Kubernetes-native open-source CI/CD framework which enables automating deployments across multiple platforms (Kubernetes, serverless, VMs, etc). Tekton aspires to be the common denominator in CI/CD, modeling what Kubernetes has become in Cloud-Native Application development.
In this webinar, we will showcase the potential of combining Tekton and ArgoCD for building a CI/CD workflow. Tekton, a Kubernetes native framework, will be in charge of the Continuous Integration while ArgoCD will add the Continuous Delivery using a GitOps approach. During the session, we will briefly describe all the steps, tools, and frameworks involved in this CI/CD workflow and finally make a live demo that will deploy an application on Stakater App Agility Platform running on Binero Cloud.
