KubeCrash: Internal Developer Platform with Secure, Reliable, Observable Communication

May 2, 2024

Everyone working in cloud native has figured out that in the microservices world, self-service is key to developing at scale. This is the whole point of the internal developer platform: give developers what they need for fast, low-friction, self-service development. Make the golden path easy.

Of course, your golden path should include secure, reliable, observable communications — so let's dive into how to be sure that it includes the service mesh! In this talk, we'll dive into this with Linkerd, talking about what sorts of things a mesh can make easier for the developer platform and how to make sure the developer platform is really bringing the power of the mesh to bear. Finally, we'll do a quick demo with Kubernetes, Linkerd, and Backstage. Join us!
