Everyone can contribute! Let's learn together in a weekly cafe ☕

We love to break things, make mistakes, debug, analyse, fix problems together. Live and unfiltered on Youtube.

Community members and thought leaders regularly join and share their projects and ideas.

"Everyone Can Contribute" is inspired by GitLab's mission.

8. Cafe: Keptn, an event-based control plane for continuous delivery and automated operations for cloud-native applications.


Alois kicked off with an introduction to Keptn and its idea on a control pane for continuous delivery. Developed at Dynatrace, it was recently contributed to the CNCF. Christian did a deep dive into the use cases with events, SLI/SLO/SLA observability in stages before going to production. He continued with a live demo with Keptn and CI/CD pipelines.

We’ve also learned how GitLab CI/CD pipelines integrate with Keptn into Dynatrace. Events and pipelines are actually traces, and allow you to ask more observability questions. Keptn helps with installing deployment pauses in a defined period of time, similar to deploy freezes in GitLab.

You can learn about the early stages of Keptn at Dynatrace. Ensure to join the Meet the maintainer: Keptn sessions at KubeCon NA next week.


Enjoy the session! 🦊
