Experience the Istio service mesh through hands-on exercises. In this tutorial, you’ll get up to speed with the most popular and most-used service mesh in production - Istio.

We’ll explain what a service mesh is and what makes it work (hint: it’s Envoy!). After the brief theoretical introduction, we’ll jump into practice, where you’ll learn how to install Istio, route traffic between different service versions, configure mutual TLS, and use observability tools such as Grafana, Kiali, and Zipkin.

By the end of this workshop, you’ll understand how Istio works and how to use Istio’s custom resource definitions to bend the mesh to fit your scenarios.
