18:30-19:15: Kubernetes native messaging for microservices with KubeMQ, Lior Nabat
In this session we will discuss why messaging patterns are essential in microservices architectures, and what are the advantages of Kubernetes native messaging system over the classical solutions such as Kafka and RabbitMQ. We will present KubeMQ, our enterprise-grade message queue for microservices which is native to Kubernetes and Docker.
19:15-20:00: Testing with production traffic, Ido Cohen
Tests are the backbone of the software we develop but our tests can only be as good as the cases that they check. Identifying all the possible scenarios and test cases can be an impossible task, so focusing your tests on real-world user scenarios is a useful tactic to achieve quality tests.
In this session, we will explore basic concepts such as contract vs case-based testing, regression vs progression testing, and the holy grail of shadow testing. We will look at the tools used to implement these concepts - Pact, GoReplay, and Loadmill.
