Talk 1: Introducing Flagger - Stefan Prodan

Introducing Flagger: a progressive delivery Kubernetes operator for Istio. It automates the promotion of canary deployments, and uses Istio routing for traffic shifting and Prometheus metrics for canary analysis.

Stefan is a Developer Experience engineer at Weaveworks. Previously he worked as a software architect and a DevOps consultant, helping companies embrace DevOps and the SRE movement. Stefan has over 15 years of experience with software development and he enjoys programming in Go and writing about distributed systems.

Talk 2: Debugging Istio Networking - Liam White

As the mesh between your services, Istio improves visibility into your application. This improves your ability to debug your application, but how do you debug Istio? This talk will get you up to speed with how Istio (Pilot) and Envoy interact followed by a live debugging session.

Liam is a Software Engineer at Tetrate and core contributor to Istio where he focuses on networking and the CLI.


This could be you! We're always looking for high-quality talks from the community about Istio or other Service Meshes. We'd especially love any user experience reports you have. Get in touch!

Many thanks to our generous sponsors, without whom this event wouldn't be possible:
