Orchestrating APIs with Docker, Kubernetes and Istio by Jim Gough

Moving from a traditional monolithic architecture to microservices can be a serious challenge! Delivering an API platform on top of this architecture adds additional complexity around versioning and release management.

In this talk we will look at the building blocks of a Service Mesh as we explore via live demo and discussion. We will start with Docker and the benefits that can give us followed by deploying into Kubernetes. We will then transform Kubernetes into a Service Mesh using Istio and observe the benefits of this futuristic platform!

(Mis)Adventures in Search of a Faster Build by David Goss
