· Distributed microservices abstraction layers with Kong (Thijs Schreijer, Kong)
Kong is a cloud-native, fast, scalable, and distributed Microservice Abstraction Layer (also known as an API Gateway, API Middleware or in some cases Service Mesh). Made available as an open-source project in 2015, its core values are high performance and extensibility.
During this talk we’ll give an introduction to what Kong can do, and do a short demonstration of the Kong Ingress Controller for Kubernetes.
