🫙 The container adoption journey may be simple for experienced practitioners in greenfield development -but many established enterprises still face the daunting beginning of this journey, carrying the weight of complex monolithic applications on traditional compute.

➡️ Join Kat and Christian as they extend service mesh and GitOps beyond the boundaries of Kubernetes. In this talk, you’ll learn:

  • How to bridge your classical compute and container-native platforms and enhance your monolith-to-microservice transformation roadmap with service mesh and GitOps policy-as-code.
  • How to utilize a service mesh capable of deploying to both Kubernetes-native and non-Kubernetes based platforms to implement microservice transformation – one micro-component at a time.
  • The benefits realized from a service mesh beyond the boundaries of Kubernetes from a single control plane.

😎 Speakers:
Kat Morgan - Senior Developer Advocate, Kong

Christian Hernanez - Head of Developer Experience and Community Management, Codefresh
