We are headed into the new year with a new topic for the third installment of Service Mesh in the Real World video series featuring Sandeep Parikh from Google and Christian Posta from If you are unsure what a service mesh is, or when it makes sense to use one, then this is the right place for you — come learn and ask questions live.
