We're coming back in July just before the summer break with a great Meetup hosted by StackState at Xebia office on the Wibautstraat in Amsterdam, specially focused on Kubernetes troubleshooting and observability. We will be serving delicious pizza's in vegan, fish and meat variants. πŸ•πŸ€€

We will have two talks on our agenda:

First talk:

Low overhead automated distributed tracing with help of eBPF; Observing connections through service meshes and load balancers by Bram Schuur, Tech Lead at StackState and Mark Bakker, co-founder StackState

Synopsis: Figuring out what is happening in your cluster once you've introduced a mesh or any networking layer can be a nightmare. This presentation addresses the technical challenges of observing connections through service meshes and load balancers, discussing the limitations of current approaches and introducing a novel approach pioneered by StackState. We go in-depth into our low overhead, language independent eBPF based solution to support fast and automated troubleshooting. We conclude with next steps extending OpenTelemetry to support tracing through service meshes and enhancing troubleshooting capabilities.

Second talk:

Introduction to Skupper, an open-source project aimed at giving you a transparent network fabric across your clusters and virtual machines by Joran Bergfeld, Solution Architect at Red Hat

Synopsis: Joran will take you through Skupper, an open-source project aimed at giving you a transparent network fabric across your clusters and virtual machines. The common use cases for this technology would be easing application modernization, derisking migrations, and lowering the time it takes for a simple network to go through security, your network department, and every ITIL process imaginable. :-) The demo will include the product working under such circumstances, but also during less favorable circumstances like link failure and such.
