On August 13th trainer Pascal van Dam will be sharing his knowledge and experience in a virtual class about Service Meshes. It’s the 2nd session in the ITGilde Gurus Class series, in which experienced open source professionals and trainers share their experience and intelligence.
The 2-hour ‘Service Meshes Explained’ class is designed for Kubernetes specialists, starting or even already seasoned with experience, who would like to know more about Service Meshes; what they are, how and more important when to put them to use.
In case you are not sure this class is for you, continue reading:
A Service Mesh is a dedicated layer of infrastructure facilitating the service-to-service communication between your Microservices. Obviously there are other means of doing this, but with a Service Mesh you can control, secure and observe these communications in a very fine-grained way.
The most important question is not WHY do you need one, the prevalent question is, WHEN do you need one? This is exactly what you will learn in the ITGilde Gurus Class! You will discover how to determine at what point your growth and maturity in Microservices could benefit or even demands the setup of a Service Mesh.
Service Meshes are hip nowadays. And there is even not one offering, but actually there are several. Service Meshes can bring great benefits to your deployed Microservices if your Microservice architecture is mature enough for it.
If you introduce them to early, you’d experience the complexity but not the benefits of having a Service Mesh implemented. And, when your Microservice architecture is mature enough, which of the many offerings are you going to choose? We will look at the two most popular ones in this IT Gilde Gurus Class and Pascal van Dam will share his experience with you, so you can make a well-informed choice.
Nowadays a growing number of people have their CKA or CKAD. But the world of Kubernetes doesn’t stop there. Actually it’s only beginning there. Knowledge about new technologies like Service Meshes will help you to ‘mature’ your Kubernetes deployment, or clearly deliver a message to the companies that could hire you that you are fit to admin their mature Kubernetes environment – or bring their current environment to the ‘next level’.
Definitely not. This is the age of Kubernetes. Using Kubernetes ‘multi-container patterns’ you can make use of all the good that a Service Mesh brings without changing any byte in the containers of your Microservices.
If you are interested in know how, join the IT Gilde Gurus Class ‘Service Meshes Explained’ in which Pascal will demonstrate this.
The Kubernetes eco-system is evolutionizing and expanding very quickly. New technologies emerge every week. As a Kubernetes specialist you will most probably not be able to use them all, but it is important to know what is available and when to put it to work for you. This is exactly how this 2-hour Service Meshes Explained class will help you.
How to manage Microservices?
The class is also interesting for Kubernetes team(s) from companies that have a Kubernetes environment running with multiple complex Microservices and that would like to control, secure and observer the communications between their Microservices.
Kubernetes Design Principles
Trainer Pascal about why he decided to design a class on this topic:
“For me, as an architect and trainer, I’d like to be ahead of new developments. My customers that have matured significantly in their use of Kubernetes, were outgrowing the functionality that simple Ingresses offered. With increasing numbers of Microservice and increasing numbers of those services that need to connect to each other, it was time to bring a new tool to the table, the Service Mesh.
Personally I admire the use of the ‘Kubernetes Design Principles’ to make Service Meshes work. It’s all about building further on a design that has it’s foundation in 2005. And that these design principles are still standing strong, is clearly reflected in the way that Kubernetes is still evolutionizing itself. In both internal as well as external additions, like Service Meshes. I’d like to share my knowledge, my experience and my enthusiasm with you.”
Service Meshes Explained for the fullest potential
Service Meshes can be a difficult matter to grasp. Pascal will explain and visualize the concept of a Service Mesh in such a way that after the 2 hours class you fully understand what it can do for you and when it can be brought to it’s fullest potential for you and your company.
