US Workshop: Using Envoy Proxy as a GraphQL Engine

In this workshop, we will learn how to use Gloo Edge to automatically discover services and create a GraphQL schema and use Gloo Edge to create a GraphQL resolver that calls different services and uses them in a schema. You will also learn how to protect your GraphQL with an API Key and prevent Data Loss and explore the Gloo Edge UI to view, create, or test your GraphQL API.

US Workshop: Network Building Blocks for Cloud-Native with Certification Option

Networking is the foundational fabric that allows for various computers, servers and everything in between to communicate, exchange data and information: understanding how data moves is critical. As many microservices are built and deployed onto container systems like Kubernetes, it’s sometimes challenging to understand where traffic goes, how we communicate with our applications, how we decipher network protocols and the various messaging that could be present. Many understand that a network is always going to be there but, how do we understand it better and interact with or modify it to our need?

EMEA Workshop: Multi Tenant Istio Service Mesh with Gloo Mesh Workshop

In this hands-on workshop, we will explore many Istio concepts (multi-cluster topologies, identity federation, authorization, and more) and demonstrate how Gloo Mesh can simplify the management of a complex heterogeneous service mesh with a particular focus on multi-tenancy.

APAC Workshop: Fundamentals for Envoy Workshop with Certification Option

Envoy Proxy is a foundational layer for many of the innovations propelling the cloud-native community, including service meshes and cloud-native API gateways. But many engineers understand Envoy only as a black-box, hidden by simplifying levels of abstraction. In this workshops, participants will explore first principles regarding Envoy architecture, filter chains, and a day-in-the-life of a request. Users will then put those principles to work to understand how to configure Envoy and debug real-world problems.

Solo Academy Testimonials

Great and long session, learnt a lot of stuff. Thank you so much team for arranging this workshop

Gopinath A.

This is one of the few expert sources I have seen around for Istio education. Usually coursses just follow the documentation from istio.io, but your workshop had all original content that was AMAZING.

Skip A.

Very happy with the workshop.

Christian A.

Absolutely loved the workshop. The hands-on platform was amazing and added more interaction to the workshop and allowed us attendees to try the enterprise tools ourselves without having to install all of the necessary tools/dependencies….

Oscar G.

Great workshop. Thank you

Alberto P.

The coursework solo academy has created is amazing. They have deep expertise with Istio, Kubernetes and Envoy and understand not just the theory, but how to make Istio run in production. There knowledge comes through in the every course
