Continuous Delivery the Hard Way

Learn why you need Continuous Delivery and how we evolved Weave Cloud to achieve Continuous Delivery with the tools you already have, like Jenkins, Circle CI and with any container registry like DockerHub, Quay or even with a private registry.

Kubernetes and Weave Cloud: Part 1 - Configuring Continuous Delivery

Step by step instructions on how you can achieve automated continuous delivery to a Kubernetes cluster using Weave Cloud Deploy. We will cover configuring automated builds, immutable container images, deploying new container images and automating deployments.

The GitOps Pipeline - Part 2

GitOps relies on your whole system to be expressed declaratively. The GitOps pipeline model places Git at the design centre - everything upstream of deployment is anchored by Git. As a result a developer can update some code in GitHub and release into production as a pull request.
