In 2019 our container count raised by more than 1000 containers and together with the development department we are running more than 45.000 CI/CD jobs with GitLab on-premises per month now. During this hot time of growth one colleague quit his job and we have to find and onboard a new young colleague. With all hands on deck, we managed it surprising easily not only to onboard the new colleague within a couple of weeks, we onboard a developer to our team in parallel too! Today we are real SRE-team, which I am proud of and this wouldn’t be possible at all without the GitOps idea. Join my talk and listen to a real world story about team play, inclusion, change and about how you can achieve the same too!
