Introduction To Service Mesh and Istio

With the rapid adoption of microservices new tools are needed to load-balance, route, secure and monitor the traffic that flows between them. Istio provides a common networking, security, policy and telemetry substrate for services that we call a ‘Service-Mesh’. Come learn how the service-mesh helps with the transition to microservices, to empower operations teams, to adopt security best-practices and much more. We’ll also cover the state of the project, where it’s headed and how you can get involved.

Kube 1.9
The Kubernetes 1.9 release focused on stabilization, but that doesn't mean there weren't a few new features, too! Come learn about what's new in Kubernetes 1.9, ranging from what got promoted to stable to the latest shiny alpha feature, and a even a few things to look forward to in Kubernetes 1.10.

Kubernetes User Story
In this session Adam will talk about how CloudHealth uses Kubernetes in development and pre-production environments to improve developer’s lives. Using Kubernetes namespaces to isolate developers and builds while also enabling collaboration across namespaces has unlocked the ability to collaborate across services in realtime and to perform live-debugging of failing builds without having to recreate the environment locally. This talk will outline the strategies and architecture of the solution, the virtues and issues we have hit along the way, and future projects to improve this process further.

BIOS (not that one)

Christian Posta (@christianposta) is a Chief Architect of cloud applications at Red Hat and well known in the community for being an author (Microservices for Java Developers, O’Reilly 2016), frequent blogger, speaker, open-source enthusiast and committer on various open-source projects such as Istio, ActiveMQ, Camel, etc. Christian has spent time at web-scale companies and now helps companies create and deploy large-scale, resilient, distributed architectures - many of what we now call Microservices. He enjoys mentoring, training and leading teams to be successful with distributed systems concepts, microservices, devops, and cloud-native application design.

Solly Ross is the Kubernetes SIG lead for SIG Autoscaling, and works on Kubernetes and OpenShift at Red Hat, with a focus on autoscaling and metrics. When not dabbling in other parts of the Kubernetes code base, Solly enjoys a wide range of programming topics, and can be found most places online as @directxman12, or simply by declaring that you wish to discuss type theory.

Adam Schepis is an architect at CloudHealth Technologies focused on the design and implementation of CloudHealth's microservices platform. Previously Adam spent 8 years working in the security industry on everything from network security, to desktop security software, to building scalable services that support those products. He once received a C++ compiler for Christmas (Thanks Santa!). You can find him on social media as @aschepis.
