Escape the Tar Pit with a Service Mesh with Andrew Jenkins
Software is complex, but we can't seem to stop creating it. That's because the complexity we build into our software is also the part that solves our users' interesting problems. We can't eliminate complexity but, good news, we can organize it.
A classic framework from a paper called Out of the Tar Pit is a great start. Andrew will explain how his team uses Kubernetes and Istio to escape some of the tar pit muck. By building on top of common code and infrastructure, you can move complexity to Shared Accidental Complexity layers that you share with your team, your company and your open source community.
But a shared layer that promises everything for everyone is likely to have immense complexity compounded many times over. Andrew will share lessons learned moving a hosted service on top of Istio.
