Talk: GitOps on AWS

Speed in software development requires being able to bootstrap development teams with best practices for DevOps, security, and infrastructure configuration. But too often teams find they have to make compromises with speed to ensure security and compliance. Application development teams need freedom to iterate and make adjustments without needing manual validation from the central teams. In this tech talk we lay out how AWS DevOps services solve these problems for organizations of various sizes and skill sets. We walk through best-practice patterns with services such as AWS CDK, AWS CFN Guard, and AWS Config for building speed, security, and compliance into your software delivery lifecycle.
