Bottoms-Up Adoption of a Microservices Workflow Using Kubernetes & Envoy - Rafael Schloming & Phil Lombardi, Datawire

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many organizations start their microservices journey by (re)designing their application architecture and operational infrastructure. We started building our cloud application using this approach. We discovered that this takes a long time.

In this talk, we’ll talk about how we ended up with a different approach when we started thinking about microservices as a workflow, and not an architecture. We’ll talk about our first goal: enabling a single developer to be able to code, ship, and manage a microservice, as quickly as possible. We’ll show how we integrated Kubernetes, Docker, Prometheus, and Envoy to achieve this goal.

Finally, we’ll talk about scaling this initial goal beyond a single developer. We’ll talk about the tradeoffs of this bottoms up approach to the conventional PAAS / service mesh / application architecture strategy, and show how you can get to the same place in the end.
