As outlined in a previous article on security challenges for microservices, DevOps are getting more widely distributed, spread thin, and forced to plan for higher levels of interactivity as well as evolving national security “backdoor” measures. Microservices, born from a still-emerging DevOps laboratory environment, can be deployed anywhere: on-prem, in the public cloud, or a hybrid implementation.

We are excited to announce the release of a new open source project, Kuma – a modern, universal control plane for service mesh! Kuma is based on Envoy, a powerful proxy designed for cloud native applications. Envoy has become the de-facto industry sidecar proxy, with service mesh becoming an important implementation in the cloud native ecosystem as monitoring, security and reliability become increasingly important for microservice applications at scale.

Service mesh is redefining the way we think about security, reliability, and observability when it comes to service-to-service communication. In a previous blog post about service mesh, we took a deep dive into our definition of this new pattern for inter-service communication. Today, we’re going to take you through how to use Istio, an open source cloud native service mesh for connecting and securing east-west traffic.

During his talk, Chad outlined how almost everything we've seen in the evolution of software and systems points to one, fundamental truth: small things are more manageable than big things. Small iterations are better iterations. Small methods are better methods. Small teams are better teams. He discussed examples from sociology, psychology, and biology that explored how we can think small to build systems and organizations that can outlive us.

Microservices aren't a one-size-fits-all solution, and it's important to recognize when a monolith is most fitting. Alexandra Noonan shared Segment's story of returning to the latter during last year's Summit.

Want to take your API to the next level? Then you should give your API an OpenAPI spec. An OpenAPI spec is more than just documentation -- with it, you can leverage your API to generate client code, do automated testing, and more! In this talk, Wordnik founder, Erin Mckean, gives an overview of the universe of OpenAPI tooling and show how you can go from zero to OpenAPI spec in just a few straightforward steps!
