About this event

We, the GDG Cloud Düsseldorf, are organizing our next meetup on wednesday july 18th at InVision.

Robert Tingirică and Randy Gupta will give talks about the kubernetes ecosystem.

Randy’s will talk about: Service Meshes with Istio

When you’re operating multiple microservice within a cluster, you might eventually come to the point where you want to have more control over the connectivity between the microservices.

Which service is speaking to whom? Is the connection SSL secured? How can I trace requests to my application? Can I run canary tests on the microservices?

Istio is currently in version 0.8 and will most likely become GA within this year. So it is about time to have a look at it!

Robert’s will talk about:
MFA for kubernetes using android phones’ fingerprint reader
The challenges of implementing an identity provider for kubernetes and the benefits it brings. Is it worth connecting your phone to the cluster? Are biometrics the new norm for corporate security departments? These are the questions that Robert has tried to answer in his quest to implement such a system. He will present the problems faced during it.

Our Agenda:
18:00 - 19:00 - Dinner's ready
19:00 - 19:45 - Randy Gupta: Service Meshes with Istio
19:45 - 20:30 - Robert Tingirică: MFA for kubernetes
20:30 - … Clubmate, Beer and great discussions...
