Welcome to the San Francisco Linkerd Meetup group. Come learn, share, and collaborate with like-minded developers and engineers of all skill levels who are interested in Linkerd, the open source service mesh. Our talks will focus on how Linkerd can be used for debugging, monitoring, and securing your Kubernetes (and non-Kubernetes) services.
To learn more about Linkerd, the CNCF service mesh, visit the project website: https://linkerd.io/
Join fellow Linkerd friends for a night of education, food, and networking.

Andrew Seigner is a Software Engineer at Buoyant, the makers of Linkerd. Andrew's current focus has been on observability and telemetry in Buoyant's next-generation service mesh. Previously Andrew worked at Twitter and Gracenote.
Title: Multi-cluster observability with Kubernetes, Linkerd, and Thanos
Uniform observability across polyglot applications can be challenging, even more so across multiple clusters. In this talk, Andrew Seigner from the Linkerd team will demonstrate adding observability to applications across multiple Kubernetes clusters with zero code changes, and then using Thanos to enable observability across all clusters in one unified view. This talk will outline how Linkerd uses Prometheus to provide zero-config observability for applications running in Kubernetes, and how Thanos enables observability to scale across any number of Prometheus instances.
J Evans is an Infrastructure Engineer at Strava where he has worked since 2017. He has helped lead Strava’s integration with Linkerd 1. Additionally, he has contributed to the upstream project and recently gave a talk about Linkerd + Prometheus at Kubecon North America 2018.
Title: Linkerd at Strava in production
Strava has been running Linkerd in production for over a year, and almost every internal app uses it for service discovery and routing. From incident response workflows to candidate deployments, Linkerd plays an integral part throughout Strava’s infrastructure stack. In this talk, J Evans will describe Strava’s real-world use case for Linkerd. He will describe how they use Linkerd’s Prometheus and Statsd integrations to respond to service outages, and how these observability tools along with other Linkerd features can even be used to avoid such outages in the first place.
