Modern Service Mesh and API Management hosted by Kong

Modern Service Mesh and API Management hosted by Kong

Date: Monday, November 18, 2019
Time: 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM
Location: San Diego Convention Center
Registration Fees: USD $299 donated to CNCF Diversity Scholarship Fund

As our applications get more decoupled and more distributed, new patterns and platforms emerge to operate, secure and connect increased microservices and API traffic within our systems.

This is hands-on workshops and practical advice to build modern architectures, discover novel strategies and practical approaches to both Service Mesh and API Management, and get hands-on experience with Kong’s latest and greatest features for both L4 and L7 traffic.

We will learn what it takes to build and operate modern architectures in a pragmatic way, with the ultimate goal of modernizing our applications, increasing team productivity and delivering business growth.

Morning Session: API Gateway
Deploying and configuring an API gateway can be a daunting task. What image should you use, what directives should you set and what database should you utilize?

During this workshop, we’ll address these challenges and more. We’ll share advice from our experiences deploying Kong, what we have learned while building Kong and some of the best practices for handling configuration in a deployment environment. Be prepared to touch on topics such as Kubernetes, CloudFormation, infrastructure as code and much more in a hands-on environment where you’ll deploy Kong from start to finish.

Afternoon Session: Service Mesh
Service Mesh is a new pattern to build reliable distributed and decoupled applications, but often too complicated to implement with 1st generation control planes. Kong takes a new approach to Service Mesh in order to build modern architectures across a large variety of platforms, including Kubernetes and VMs.

We’ll walk you through easily setting up Service Mesh across multiple environments, and enabling security and observability – in any network – automatically. We will introduce new concepts and products along the way, and let developers and architects of any skillset being comfortable with Service Mesh.

Registrants may choose to attend morning or afternoon sessions. Light breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided.

NSMCon hosted by the Network Service Mesh Community

NSMCon hosted by the Network Service Mesh Community

Date: Monday, November 18, 2019
Time: 9:00 AM – 4:30 PM
Location: San Diego Convention Center
Registration Fees: USD $50 donated to CNCF Diversity Scholarship Fund

Why Attend NSMCon?

Are you running workloads in multiple clusters? Across multiple clouds: on-premises, hybrid, multicloud, or public cloud? Do they need to interact with legacy workloads running in less “cloudy” environments? Network Service Mesh (NSM) ties them all together, at the granularity of individual workloads, not cluster/VPCs/data centers.

NSM is a community-driven CNCF Sandbox project that is rapidly gaining momentum because of its ability to simplify connectivity between workloads, independent of where they are running. It extends an IP reachability domain to workloads running in multiple clusters, legacy environments, on-premises, or in a public cloud, communicating with the protocols they are currently using.

NSM does this at the granularity of individual workloads. Your workloads have connectivity to just the workloads they need nothing more, nothing less. NSM brings the useful features of a Service Mesh from the lofty heights of HTTP all the way down to IP itself. Applications and Application Service Meshes, such as Istio, run unaltered on top, leaving the hybrid/multicloud IP connectivity to NSM.

The project emerged organically as a community project to solve these problems by applying the Service Mesh thought process all the way down to IP with the global peering mentality of the Internet itself – without breaking your existing environment.

Join the people building and using NSM at NSMCon for a day of tutorials, deep dives, and use cases to learn how NSM works, what it can do for you, and, most importantly, what’s coming next.

How to register: Pre-registration is required. To register for NSMCon , add it on during your KubeCon + CloudNativeCon registration.
