Dennis -
Debugging microservices running in Kubernetes can be difficult when dealing with certain kinds of failures; for example, when services fail with request timeouts or HTTP 500 error responses. In this talk, we'll walk through a brief overview of Linkerd, a service mesh that provides out of the box observability for microservices in Kubernetes clusters. We’ll walk through some of Linkerd’s features and see how we can use its CLI and UI dashboard to troubleshoot these kinds of errors that are not easily visible from Kubernetes’s dashboard or API.

Joe -
The world of containers is moving to the next phase. We now have an evolving toolbox. The question is now what do we do with this new tool box? We need to think beyond just running containers and instead about how we use the patterns and primitives to automate all parts of application development and operations. In this talk, we will outline how Kubernetes was built to be built on and detail some of the innovative techniques and projects that are taking things to the next level.
