December 2019 Upcoming Events and Webinars

We can’t believe the year is almost over! There are a few more events and webinars left in 2019 to meet up, learn and share about all things Envoy Proxy, Service Mesh and Kubernetes. We look forward to meeting you online or in person! If you’d like to have us at your event, email us for a workshop or talk.

We still have a few more events in the works — so check back for the latest updates or message us in the community slack with any questions.

CNCF Webinar: Using Envoy Proxy as Your Gateway to Service Mesh

Join Field CTO, Christian Posta as he discusses how Kubernetes and Service Mesh are patterns in building new applications that decouple dependencies between the application code, infrastructure and how the services should communicate. With microservices, the network becomes critical for a properly functioning application teams need to consider both North / South traffic (incoming requests from end users to the cluster) and East / West (intra cluster) communication between the services.

In this talk we will explain how Envoy Proxy works in Kubernetes as a proxy for both of these traffic directions and how it can be leveraged with Gloo to do things like traffic shaping, security, and integrate the north/south to east/west behavior.

In this session, we’ll cover:

  • Role of Envoy Proxy from Edge to Service Mesh
  • Guidance on incremental adoption of proxies in your environment
  • Gloo as Envoy Proxy control plane for managing ingress
  • Connecting Ingress to Service Mesh for security and observability
  • New opportunities in application resilience with Service Mesh

Online Meetup #4:

In our last meetup of the year, the community comes together to recap and discuss topics from KubeCon, preview WebAssembly with Gloo and the new Autopilot project for building operators for service mesh.

Bring your questions, projects and discussion topics to the group here.

Kubernetes Austin Meetup

Scott Cranton, our Director of Customer Success heads to Austin to close out 2019 with the local Kubernetes fans at the meetup. Come to the Capital Factory for an evening of networking and learning about Kubernetes Ingress and Service Mesh Integration. Microservices introduces new challenges in handling incoming and service to service communications how to configure, manage, and secure them to protect backend services and ensure a good end user experience. This talk explains the concepts and how using Envoy Proxy can solve these challenges. See you in Austin.
