Cloud-native describes a way of building applications on a cloud platform to iteratively discover and deliver business value. We now have access to a lot of similar technology that the large internet companies pioneered and used to their advantage to dominate their respective markets. What challenges arise when we start building applications to take advantage of this new technology?

In this mini-conference, we'll cover what it means to build applications with microservices, how cloud-native integration and concepts like service mesh have evolved to solve some of those problems, and how the next iteration of application development with Functions as a Service (FaaS) and serverless computing fit into this landscape.

You'll hear from industry experts Burr Sutter and Christian Posta who recently authored a book Introducing Istio Service Mesh for Microservices about these topics.

Attendees should come away from this mini-conference with the following understanding:

  • Understanding of what cloud-native means and how to use it to influence positive business outcomes
  • How integration has evolved to create, connect and manage cloud-native APIs
  • How service-mesh technology like Istio can solve the challenges introduced with cloud-native applications
  • How the next iteration of applications deliver with FaaS and serverless computing fits in with a world of monoliths, microservices, and APIs

These talks will be of value for developers, architects, operators, platform directors, and technology leaders.

After the presentations, please stay and join Christian, Burr and your peers for networking, food and drinks. All attendees will also receive a copy of Christian and Burr's new book: Introducing Istio Service Mesh for Microservices.
