About the talks

Istio on Kubernetes: Enter the Service Mesh

The first generation of microservices was primarily shaped by Netflix OSS and leveraged by numerous Spring Cloud annotations sprinkled all throughout your business logic. The next generation of cloud native apps and microservices will leverage sidecars and a service mesh.

In this session, we will give you a taste of Envoy and Istio, two open source projects that will change the way you write distributed applications on Kubernetes and OpenShift. Istio allows you to deal with traffic shaping, network fault-injection (chaos engineering), smart canary deployments, dark launches, and observability.

This session is for application architects and experienced developers who are ready to take their cloud native microservice skills to the next level, potentially increasing deployment frequency of your cloud native apps from weeks to days to minutes.

Kubernetes Serverless with Knative

In this session, we are going to explore an open source event-driven lambda style serverless programming model and runtime set of capabilities for Kubernetes called Knative. Knative provides a suite of middleware components & building blocks that enhance developer productivity, enable a “source-to-url” pipeline and event-driven Serverless application architectural pattern. Developers have run their code in application servers for many years. However, the cloud paradigm brought new ways to think and design applications. One example of this change is serverless architecture where event-driven code is executed on an ephemeral Linux container on an as-needed basis. It does not mean that there are no servers involved, but for the developer’s perspective, it means that they don’t need to worry about those servers so they can more focus on differentiating business logic, often designed as microservices and functions.
