In-person event

About this event

Hello everyone !

Nous avons une très belle opportunité de recevoir chez nous un des contributeurs de Linkerd 2 (service Mesh) qui est de passage en europe pour la Kubecon 2019. Si vous voulez tout savoir sur l'utilisation d'un Service Mesh et un retour d'experience d'une banque sur leur architecture kubernetes avec une utilisation avancée des Service Mesh.
Merci aux équipes de Zenly d’accueillir cette événement.

We're really excited to organize the Cloud Native meetup about service Mesh with 2 Experts. We welcome Thomas Rampelberg the core maintainer of Linkerd 2. Linkerd is one of the first cloud-native service mesh.
the second talk with Suhail Patel from Monzo to share his experience using Mesh service.


19:00 - Welcome Reception & CNCF update.
19:15 - Thomas Rampelberg, Buoyant Inc
19:45 - Suhail Patel , Monzo
20:30 - Networking and mingling

TITLE: Debugging Services in Kubernetes With Linkerd 2


Thomas Rampelberg is a Software Engineer at Buoyant Inc


Kubernetes is a widely used orchestration platform, increasingly in support of microservices architectures. Developers are being tasked with managing the development, deployment, and production of services atop Kubernetes. While Kubernetes can automatically keep your service up in the event of failure or a software crash, it doesn’t provide visibility into how your service is behaving.

In this talk, we will walk through how to monitor your service on Kubernetes and troubleshoot some common issues. This will be a live demo and no previous Kubernetes experience is required.

Bio :

Thomas Rampelberg is a Software Engineer at Buoyant Inc. He has made a career of building infrastructure software that allows developers and operators to focus on what is important to them. He is focused on one of the big problems in this space: providing insight into what is happening between services, improving reliability between them and using best practices to secure the communication channels between them.

TITLE: Why do you need a service mesh and how can Envoy Proxy help?


Suhail Backend Engineer at Monzo


Over the last few years, service meshes have evolved and there has been new entrants in the space such as Istio, Envoy Proxy, Linkerd2 and more, all with rich featuresets. The goal of these all of these systems has been to make the network more transparent to applications by abstracting it away in an out of process system. As long as an application speaks common protocols (no matter the application language or runtime), it can take advantage of benefits like intelligent load balancing, circuit breaking, service discovery and more.

In this talk, we will go over the use-cases of a service mesh and introduce Envoy Proxy to describe the role it can play to help make your systems more resilient. No prior experience with Kubernetes or Service Meshes or Envoy Proxy will be assumed. Things will be explained from principles.


Suhail is a Backend Engineer at Monzo focused on working on the core Platform. His role involves building and maintaining Monzo's infrastructure which more than 1,000 microservices and leverages key infrastructure components like Kubernetes, Envoy Proxy, Cassandra, Etcd and more. He focuses specifically in investigating deviant behaviour and ensuring services continue to work reliably in the face of a constantly shifting environment in the cloud.

See you soon!
