Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Developer Control Plane Deep Dive Session

Last week we announced general availability of the Ambassador Developer Control Plane 1.0, our managed developer control plane solution. DCP 1.0 integrates some of the most popular CNCF tools, including Argo, Emissary-Ingress, Envoy Proxy, and Telepresence, into an integrated cloud-native workflow. With the Ambassador Developer Control Plane, any cloud-native developer can code, ship, and run Kubernetes services -- without YAML. Best of all, the DCP is fully integrated with Kubernetes and Git, so you can use your existing Kubernetes and GitOps workflows.

In this Deep Dive session, we'll walk you through what's new in the Ambassador DCP 1.0 with deep dives into the three key areas of functionality: coding, shipping, and running your Kubernetes services.

Session starts 11:00am ET

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Developer Control Planes: An Architect's Point of View

In a cloud native world, software developers are no longer only responsible for writing code. Today’s developers must write and package code, deploy these services into production, and make sure that the corresponding applications continue to run correctly when released into production.

As an architect, how do you make sure your development teams have the tools they need to manage all of these tasks? We recommend a Developer Control Plane.

A developer control plane enables developers to control and configure the entire cloud development loop in order to ship software faster.

Join this session for a conversation with Daniel Bryant, Director of DevRel and Bjorn Freeman-Benson, SVP of Engineering at Ambassador Labs on how a developer control plane can enhance your existing technology stack and enable collaboration among your development teams without requiring devs to worry about managing configuration.

Session starts at 12 PM ET.

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Emissary Open Source: Meet the Maintainers

We devote every last Thursday per month to support Emissary Office Hours. These sessions are a way to connect in person to share updates and listen to feedback from the community. If you are a current user who wants to learn more or would like to get involved with open source, please join us! This month's session will be hosted by Flynn.

Session starts at 10:00 AM ET.

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Debugging Kubernetes Microservices for Java Developers

LIVE TUTORIAL: Learn to locally debug Spring Boot microservices with IntelliJ and Telepresence connected to a remote Kubernetes cluster

Many organizations adopt cloud native development practices because they want to ship features faster. And while technologies and architectures may change when moving to the cloud, we all still add the occasional bug to our code. However, many of your existing local debugging tools and practices can’t be used when everything is running in a container or on the cloud.

In this week's office hours, Daniel Bryant, will walk you through the use of Telepresence for seamlessly connecting a remote Kubernetes cluster that contains all of your microservices with your local development machine running all of your familiar debug tooling.

Daniel has coded professionally in Java for nearly 20 years and is a Java Champion.

Session starts at 10 AM ET.

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Diagnosing and Debugging Microservices on Kubernetes, How to Avoid a Murder Mystery

As any developer will tell you, we all accidentally add bugs to our software. Although unit testing can catch a lot of potential issues, it is inevitable that a few bugs end up in production. Once these have been identified it is vitally important to be able to quickly triage and diagnose the issue.

Being able to effectively debug services in Kubernetes is not dependent on a single tool or technique. A combination of approaches is required. We'll use this session to explore a range of options.

This week we have a special guest joining us, Kostis Kapelonis from Codefresh!

Session starts at 10 AM ET.

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Automated Testing for Kubernetes with Jenkins

Kubernetes makes local development slower and more challenging compared to monolithic applications. With Telepresence, you can make code changes quickly on Kubernetes services and get feedback instantly in your local environment. But what happens when you want to push this change to production?

By integrating Telepresence with your CI/CD pipeline, you can test your code changes safely and get them deployed to prod faster.

John Laffey will use this week's office hours to share an example of a Jenkins pipeline executing a simple automated test against demo code using Telepresence.

Ambassador Developer Office Hours: Debugging Kubernetes Microservices

LIVE TUTORIAL: Learn to locally debug Go microservices with VScode while testing against a larger application running in a remote Kubernetes cluster.

Many organizations adopt cloud native development practices because they want to ship features faster. And while technologies and architectures may change when moving to the cloud, we all still add the occasional bug to our code. However, many of your existing local debugging tools and practices can’t be used when everything is running in a container or on the cloud.
