On October 31st I co-presented an Amazon webinar with the estimable Chris Hein, a Partner Solution Architect from Amazon and certified Friend of Weaveworks. 

We talked about why containers are being adopted so quickly, the value and benefits that adopting this technology brings and why it’s important to Amazon’s ecosystem.

I told a scary story, for Halloween, about what happened when a Weaveworks engineer accidentally deleted critical parts of our production environment - and how the GitOps methodology we’ve adopted allowed us to recover in less than an hour (you’ll have to watch the webinar to find out exactly how quickly).

GitOps offers more than just a reduced MTTR (Mean Time To Recovery), you’ll also hear me talk about how it enables greater automation, benefits new team members and organisations with compliance requirements.
