It is possible to use GitLab as a best-in-class GitOps tool, and this blog post series is going to show you how. GitOps is an operational framework that takes DevOps best practices used for application development such as version control, collaboration, compliance, and CI/CD tooling, and applies them to infrastructure automation. This series of easy-to-follow tutorials will focus on different user problems, including provisioning, managing a base infrastructure, and deploying various third-party or custom applications on top of them, that can be solved by pairing GitOps with GitLab.
