GitOps vs IDPs - Part 1/2

Internal Developer Platforms (IDPs) and GitOps are often pitched against one another as opposite solutions to similar challenges. In this webinar series we’ll explore the pros and cons of each approach and show where teams can combine them to get the best of both worlds.


We are excited to co-host this series with Kostis, developer advocate at Codefresh. In Part 1, Chris and Kostis will cover:

- What is an IDP and what is GitOps

- Pros and cons of both approaches and how they can solve different use cases

- How engineering teams can combine both solutions to enable developer self-service


After a 30 minutes talk, there will be 15 minutes for Q&A. We’d like to encourage you to submit your questions in advance.


A recording of the webinar and related materials will be shared with webinar attendees after the event.
