Istio, securing your service mesh on Kubernetes. Do I need it? (Rob Richardson)

Istio, Securing Your Service Mesh on Kubernetes. Do I need it?

Speaker: Rob Richardson, Software Developer, Richardson & Sons, LLC

You may be hearing about service meshes and technologies like Istio. There are benefits that the technologies address, but they also bring in added levels of complexity.

Join Rob Richardson who will help break it down:

  • Intro to service meshes
  • Pros / cons (benefits / complexities)
  • Use cases where you may prefer existing or different solutions
  • Use cases where you may stay the course, but start taking steps toward using a service mesh
  • Use cases where you'll likely benefit from using a service mesh, and what best practices to keep in mind.

Advanced Techniques for Building Container Images

Docker's slogan is "Build, Ship And Run Any App Anywhere," but in the last couple of years the "build" part seems to have stagnated. That all changed with the release of buildkit, which is now part of Docker 19.03. In this talk Adrian Mouat, Chief Scientist at Container Solutions, will take a look at the new tooling and how it can be used to improve the development build cycle.

Speaker: Adrian Mouat, Chief Scientist, Container Solutions

Bio: Adrian has been involved with containers from the early days of Docker and authored the O'Reilly book "Using Docker". He is currently Chief Scientist at Container Solutions, a pan-european company focusing on consulting and product development for microservices and containers.

From Pilot to Platform: Scaling Up Enterprise Kubernetes

Kubernetes has emerged as a de-facto platform for deploying container-based microservices. While this approach holds much promise, enterprises need to start on the right foot to not build up problems for later. So, how can you build a Kubernetes-based strategy that delivers both now and in the future?

In this 1-hour webinar with a GigaOM analyst and Steve George, COO Weaveworks, you will discover:

  • What is the opportunity and challenge presented by Kubernetes-based microservices delivery?
  • How to ensure the right elements of strategy, to maximize effectiveness while minimizing risk?
  • What might a staged approach look like, depending on where the organization is in its own journey?
  • What roles and responsibilities are required to embed Kubernetes in the enterprise?
