[Tech Talk] Getting Started with Service Mesh Workshop
June 8, 2023
Service mesh is the future of application connectivity, offering immediate enhancements to your application traffic’s security, reliability, and observability. It abstracts network complexities, offering functionalities like discovery, routing, and more. But you may ask, isn’t all of this already available in our frameworks?
In this workshop, you’ll discover just how straightforward it is to get started with service mesh in a Kubernetes environment, and we’re not restricting ourselves to any specific language or framework. We aim to be as inclusive as possible, addressing developers from diverse backgrounds.
First, we will guide you through the installation of the service mesh control plane using Kuma. We will then demonstrate the deployment of sample applications. The principles apply broadly, and developers of all stripes will find the content relevant and useful.
Next, we’ll delve into enabling traffic policies and exploring observability using tools like Grafana and Prometheus. We will achieve all this without needing convoluted allocation across multiple frameworks or reliance on custom code.
This session is designed to be a practical, hands-on workshop. It will provide you with the tools and knowledge to harness the power of service mesh, regardless of your preferred development language or framework.
