Production is the place where all applications should live. Even though you are using continuous integration and delivery, you might wonder every time you release a new version to production if it will work or there will be some breakage on the latest version, eventually making production unavailable to the customers.
Progressive delivery is the next step after Continuous Delivery to test your application in production before it becomes fully available to all your user bases.
Embrace progressive delivery with techniques like the blue-green, canary release, shadowing traffic, or dark launches to validate the application in production using Kubernetes and tools like Istio, Prometheus, ArgoCD, or Argo Rollouts.
Come to this session to learn progressive delivery and GitOps in action using Kubernetes.
