By going full GitOps, scalability becomes a fun problem to solve. Because we are a default-to-open company, we intensively use GitHub, even though that's a third party service. In that environment, we operate under, as any other user, the GitHub terms of service. In this presentation, we will outline the environment and the infrastructure used for GitOps in our group, using that as context so we can dive into the implementation and rollout of the Open Source project that enabled us to do, as of now, 100k+ calls per hour to the GitHub API, with plenty of room for growing, and adding a layer of resilience which made the GitHub API outages mostly unnoticable for us.
