The fact that this course is centered on Kubernetes and DevOps, which happens to be my learning paths, makes it a great experience for me. The contents are well curated to fit into my ongoing Linux Foundation course on Kubernetes Security Essentials (LFS260). I now know I have a better understanding of how K8s and DevOps relate. The presenter did a great job explaining key components and benefits of GitOps, and also suggesting further study paths to help the learner.
