6:30 - 7:00 - Arrive / Social

7:00 - 7:30 -  Matt Klein - Observability and Control in the Age of the Service Mesh

State of the art SoA observability currently primarily relies on disparate logging, metrics, and tracing systems, while control capabilities are mostly provided by CLIs, rudimentary web consoles, and chatbots. These disparate systems get the job done, but yield a huge amount of cognitive overload for SoA operators who are continuously trying to stitch together all of the different threads. This is a forward thinking talk in which we will cover the current state of the art in observability and control for SoA. We will then look forward and imagine the power of a unified observability and control plane for SoA primarily driven by the burgeoning "service mesh" paradigm.

7:30 - 8:00 -  Sunny Gupta - Istio Mixer: What, why, when?

We'll go over Mixer's role within Istio, its architecture, and look down the road at what we're hoping to achieve in the future.
