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?

Solo Academy Testimonials
Great and long session, learnt a lot of stuff. Thank you so much team for arranging this workshop
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.
Very happy with the workshop.
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….
Great workshop. Thank you
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
