Argo: Kubernetes-Native Tools with Alex Collins

Kubernetes is an open source container orchestration service released by Google in 2014. It has quickly grown into a platform with a huge community of enthusiasts and professionals. Besides becoming the de facto standard for container orchestration, it has fostered an ecosystem of related tools and services with increasing power and sophistication (opensource.com).

Argo, a project developed by the company Applatix and acquired by Intuit, is a set of essential Kubernetes-native tools for deploying and running jobs and applications on Kubernetes. All the Argo tools are implemented as controllers and custom resources. Some of these tools are Argo Workflows, Argo Events, Argo CD, and Argo Rollouts (intuit.com).

In this episode we talk to Alex Collins, Principal Software Engineer at Intuit, about using Argo to manage Kubernetes applications.
