Service Mesh Kick-Starter With Istio

Service Meshes are fast becoming ubiquitous in cloud-native infrastructure, and even beyond. To the platform engineer, they provide a more advanced and configurable network, with built-in security. To the software engineer, they offer features for service discovery, resiliency, and observability. But Service Meshes can be daunting; difficult to understand and hard to use.  

This practical workshop will kick-start your Service Mesh journey. We’ll get hands-on with Istio, the ubiquitous Service Mesh, and by far the most powerful and flexible. You'll learn how to install it into Kubernetes, then we'll use some microservices to explore its features, like timeouts and retires. We’ll also look at the powerful observability features, automatic service-to-service mutual TLS, and more!  

In between the exercises I’ll present some theory about how Service Meshes work, so you have the full picture of what’s going on under the hood. Armed with this knowledge and your practical experience from the day, you'll be well-equipped to continue your Service Mesh journey.

The workshop time includes 1 hour of break time.

Service Mesh Kick-Starter With Linkerd 2

Service Meshes are fast becoming ubiquitous in cloud-native infrastructure, and even beyond. To the platform engineer, they provide a more advanced and configurable network, with built-in security. To the software engineer, they offer features for service discovery, resiliency, and observability. But Service Meshes can be daunting; difficult to understand and hard to use.  

This practical workshop will kick-start your Service Mesh journey. We’ll get hands-on with Linkerd2, a simple but powerful Service Mesh. You'll learn how to install it into Kubernetes, then we'll use some microservices to explore its features, like timeouts and retires. We’ll also look at the powerful observability features, automatic service-to-service mutual TLS, and more!

A Practical Introduction to Terraform, on Multiple Clouds

Every year we build ever more, and ever more complicated, infrastructure in "the cloud". A modern devops team has to manage more and more systems, from IaaS providers like AWS, to SaaS like Cloudflare, GitHub, and more.

Automation is the key to getting this sprawling empire under control. Some of these platforms have their own proprietary config systems, like CloudFormation, but only Terraform offers cloud-agnostic control across a wide range of providers. We’ll see how ad-hoc, point-and-click deployments can be replaced by declarative files in source-control.

This workshop will get you hands-on with Terraform. After we've installed and configured it, we'll use it to manipulate multiple providers - traditional VMs and networks in an IaaS, but also related configuration in a couple of SaaS solutions. We'll see all the main features, including making cloud resources, reading cloud provider data, provisioning VMs, and modelling dependencies between deployments.

In between the practical exercises I’ll present some theory about how Terraform works, and patterns for getting the best out of it. Armed with this knowledge and your practical experience from the day, you'll be well-equipped to continue your Terraform journey.
