  • What are Istio VirtualServices and DestinationRules?
  • How to deploy Canaries (and what they are!)
  • How to deploy "Dark Releases"
  • Istio Gateways
  • How to test the resilience of a system using Fault Injection



  • Understand standard Kubernetes

Updated for Istio 1.5 on April 3 2020!

Istio is one of the most talked-about frameworks in recent years! If you've worked with Kubernetes before, then you'll want to learn Istio! With this hands-on, practical course, you'll be able to gain experience in running your own Istio Service Meshes.

This course is designed to be clear and understandable - and fun! But we also go into detail - you'll be learning how to use Istio in real production scenarios - and you'll be looking at the inner workings of Istio.

You can run this course on your own computer, using Minikube (8Gb of Host Ram required) - you don't need a cloud provider, although you can also run the course there - anywhere that you can run Kubernetes!

After a brief talk about what Istio is, we go straight into a hands-on demo, where you'll experience how Istio can solve difficult problems on live projects.

Then you'll find out the details of:

  • Traffic Management

  • Telemetry

  • Visualisation (with Kiali)

  • Distributed Tracing (with Jaeger)

  • Using Grafana to monitor network traffic

  • How to deploy canary releases

  • How to do "Dark Releases"

  • Istio VirtualServices and DestinationRules

  • Load Balancing and Session Affinity

  • Istio Gateways

  • Resilience testing with Fault Injection

  • Circuit Breaking/Outlier Detection

  • Securing cluster traffic with Mutual TLS (mTLS)

The "learning curve" for Istio is steep - which is why I've designed this course to be as clear and understandable as possible, and I hope with the hands-on demos, you'll also have fun along the way. But most of all, Istio is an extremely powerful tool, and it's a great addition to your CV!



Who this course is for:

  • Any Kubernetes developer who wants to learn what Istio can do for them
  • Anyone who has tried to understand Istio but finds the standard documentation too confusing

Course Details:

  • 12.5 hours on-demand video
  • 4 articles
  • 1 downloadable resource
  • Full lifetime access
  • Access on mobile and TV
  • Certificate of completion
