6:30pm: Workshop - Using Linkerd
**Free CNCF swag and a free O'Reilly book or two**
In the adoption of cloud native technologies engineers find one of the greatest challenges is the management of services in distributed systems. Service meshes have quickly entered the cloud native landscape filling unmet service-level needs. Service management challenges include service discovery, load balancing, fault tolerance, end-to-end monitoring, dynamic routing for canary deployments and securing communication. As a service mesh, Linkerd addresses these problems by providing a layer of infrastructure between the services and network that allows service communication to be controlled outside the application code.
During this series of hands-on labs you will gain hands-on experience in deploying and using Linkerd to run microservices on Kubernetes.
