Hi David, tell us who you are and what lead you into microservices?
I used to code in Java and I've always fought against heavyweight, monolithic applications. But it's only nowadays that I see how easily we are able to assemble those microservices like legos thanks to containers and a service mesh. It's a lot of fun!
What will you be talking about at Voxxed Days Microservices?
Life of a developer in a containers world can be awesome and also sometimes hard. I'm going to demonstrate how the Google Container Tools, a set of open source tools, can make us happy again!
Why do you think developers struggle when they develop applications for Kubernetes?
Platforms such as Kubernetes offer more and more features. With a service mesh, like Istio, it's even more features that the microservices rely on. Developing out of the platform lets the developers without those features and developing in the platform is often cumbersome: one needs to rebuild Docker images, patch Kubernetes manifests, redeploy and repeat forever. The tools I'm going to demonstrate try to fix this issue.
Good, see you soon then.
