So what is covered in the video? More or less the following:
- All it takes is:1$ curl -L https://meshery.io/install | PLATFORM=kubernetes bash -
kubectl config current-context)
That’s quite a lot of content for a 20 minute clip. In the follow-up videos, we’ll dive deeper into many of these concepts. And also show how to use Meshery with other service mesh providers.
This video is also the opening shot of Layer5's Learn to Service Mesh playlist, which is specifically dedicated to tutorials and webinars. If service mesh tech interests you and you’re willing to learn more about it, then make sure to subscribe to the channel and watch for updates.
And let us know if there’s any specific content you want us to create. Or maybe anything you’ve created yourself and would like to share? Layer5 is all about knowledge sharing and we want to talk to you, so please join the cloud native community!
Meshery Docker Extension
Develop service mesh-ready apps using Docker Desktop and Meshery. The Docker Extension for Meshery extends Docker Desktop’s position as the cloud native developer’s go-to Kubernetes environment with easy access to the next layer of cloud native infrastructure: service meshes.
