Microservice'ing Like a Unicorn With Envoy, Istio and Kubernetes - Christian Posta, Red Hat
The exciting parts of APIs, unfortunately, happen when services actually try communicating and working together to accomplish some business function. The service-mesh approach has emerged to help make service communication boring. In particular, a project named Istio.io has garnered attention in the open-source community as a way of implementing the service mesh capabilities. These capabilities include pushing application-networking concerns down into the infrastructure: things like retries, load balancing, timeouts, deadlines, circuit breaking, mutual TLS, service discovery, distributed tracing and others.

As Istio becomes more popular and widely used, we’re going to see a lot of people put it into production for their API use cases. This talk will walk attendees through the Istio architecture, and more importantly, help them understand how it all works.

The Part They Do Not Tell You About Microservices - Muktesh Mishra & Dipika Mulchandani, Capital One
You invest your time and effort breaking up that monolithic Frankenstein into a suite of elegant composable micro-services, you containerize them, and you deploy them somewhere. Then you proudly watch it all come together reaping the benefits of the most scalable of all modern architectures. It is all fine and dandy from this point on. Too good to be true? Of course it is! This session is about the part of the story they don’t tell you; about what to do when you wake up to find yourself in the weeds diagnosing that first bugs, and tracing calls through the convoluted web of micro-services of your own doing. Through a series of quick demos and code snippets, we will be introduce the most important open-source project and must-have tools to strike the right balance of monitoring at the infrastructure, the container, the system, and at the service levels. Don’t miss out on a fun session!

Testing and Meaningful Mocks in a Microservice System - Laura Medalia, Care/Of
Laura will be talking about tooling for mocking microservice endpoints in a meaningful way using Open API specifications. She will cover how to set up microservice deployments processes so that with each versioned microservice deployed a mock of the service with up to date contracts will also be deployed. Laura will also show how to use tooling she and her team built to consume these lightweight mocks in end to end tests and either get default mock responses or mock out custom responses for different test cases.

API Design Lessons From Kubernetes - James Bowes, Manifold
Kubernetes is a wildly successful container orchestrator. Much of this success comes from a strong architectural foundation that allows composition, extensibility, and stability. In this talk, we will examine patterns and design choices made for the Kubernetes API. We will look at how these patterns affect the stability and resiliency of Kubernetes. We will see how patterns apply to specific use cases, like Kubernetes controllers that watch for changes. Finally, we will see how you can apply these patterns and principles to your own APIs and distributed systems.
