Linkerd and Telepresence offer a simple way to better observe and debug applications running in Kubernetes clusters.
- Cloud native applications can become hard to maintain and evolve
- Linkerd and Telepresence provide a solution for observing and debugging applications
- Sample code is available for easy replication
- An anecdote was given to illustrate how Linkerd and Telepresence can be used to locate and fix problems in a cluster
The presentation gave an example of an app that allowed users to vote for emojis, but users were complaining about problems in the app. Linkerd was used to identify the location of the problem in the cluster, and Telepresence was used to debug and fix the problem in the voting service. A special http header was used to ensure that testing and debugging did not affect other developers on the team.
