Online Meetup #3 — Halloween Special with Tidepool.org, Weaveworks and Buoyant

Betty Junod | November 1, 2019

Happy Halloween from Solo.io! Today we hosted an online meetup with some of our cloud-native friends Thomas from Buoyant (the makers of Linkerd) and Stefan from Weaveworks (makers of Flagger and Flux) along with guest speaker Derrick Burns from Tidepool.org, a non-profit building software to make diabetes data accessible to patients for better care.

In today’s meetup, Derrick shared what his team has been working on over the last year in migration the Tidepool platform from a custom built infrastructure tooling to popular open source technologies. He talked about the education process to their team and to the FDA in building healthcare technology with open source. After Derrick’s talk we had open Q&A and discussion around the journey so far (including HIPAA compliance with service mesh!) and what’s next (progressive delivery).
