We will go over the basics of service meshes, and why they have so much buzz. In particular, we will take a look at the Istio project - https://istio.io/ - which is a service mesh that runs well on kubernetes. We will then discuss how you can leverage a service mesh in your deployment process to make sure your production deployments are safe. In particular, we will look at "smoke test" deployments and canary deployments, both of which allow you to test out your updates on production without affecting all (or any) of your users. Come see how your company can benefit from a service mesh.
7:30-whenever: Questions, discussion, mingling.
