How to get a grip on your microservices system using a service-mesh

Many organizations are now building microservices based systems. But with the adoption of this architecture-style, the need arises for a good way to manage and monitor all the services and their traffic. To handle this, you can leverage what is called a service-mesh. In this session attendees will learn what a service-mesh is and how to implement one for a microservices based system using Kubernetes and Istio.

Topics covered are: intelligent traffic-routing, canary releasing, testing resiliency using chaos-engineering and monitoring using several available telemetry dashboards.

It's a very practical session with lots of demos and deep-dives into code and configuration. All the code shown in de demos (including an elaborate description on how to run the demo application) is available for attendees on Github.
