Kevin Jones is an Artist turned Engineer-Geek. When not shooting photography or small films he is traveling the work helping organizations adopt strategies and architectures which helps their applications thrive.


We have all heard about the benefits of a service mesh and the problems it promises to solve, but when do we really know it’s time to adopt one? What should you watch out for during the process to ensure a smooth transition?

In this talk we will review the existing traffic patterns being adopted today for deploying microservices. We will review the architecture and functionality that a service mesh brings to the table. Lastly we will review a checklist of what is considered to be “service mesh ready” and a handful of “gotchas” to watch out for during and after the process.
