    Project mention: Interesting projects using WebAssembly | dev.to | 2024-04-08

    The following two examples are open-source projects maintained by Fermyon with contributions from companies like Microsoft and SUSE. The first is Spin, which allows us to use WebAssembly to create Serverless applications. The second, SpinKube, combines some of the topics I'm most excited about these days: WebAssembly and Kubernetes Operators :) The official website says, "By running applications in the Wasm abstraction layer, SpinKube offers developers a more powerful, efficient, and scalable way to optimize application delivery on Kubernetes." By the way, this post shows how to integrate SpinKube with Dapr, another technology I'm very interested in, and I should write some posts soon.

  • kubeshark

    The API traffic analyzer for Kubernetes providing real-time K8s protocol-level visibility, capturing and monitoring all traffic and payloads going in, out and across containers, pods, nodes and clusters. Inspired by Wireshark, purposely built for Kubernetes

    Project mention: Show HN: Alaz: Open-Source, Self-Hosted, eBPF-Based K8s Monitoring | news.ycombinator.com | 2023-09-06

    The one similar product I had come across is Kubeshark (https://github.com/kubeshark/kubeshark). But admittedly the eBPF way seems more performant theoretically (given you can afford to have a modern-enough kernel). I'm really excited to see how this project develops out.

    The eBPF-mode of innovation is pretty exciting, truly a fresh lens to building software. I'm also following Akita Software - the company building an eBPF paradigm of monitoring.

  • Tyk

    Project mention: Microservices communication | /r/golang | 2023-12-09

    See https://goa.design/. It automates all the comms stuff, so you just write: 1) a design file showing your functions, 2) an implantation of those functions, and 3) a very generic "main.go" (basically the same for all your services) that decides "how is this exposed over gRPC or REST or other comms?". The rest of the code is generated.

  • NATS

    Project mention: Mastering Golang Microservices - A Practical Guide: Embrace High-Performance with Kitex and Hertz | dev.to | 2024-01-12

    The world of software development is fast-paced, and having reliable and efficient tools makes a significant difference. This is where CloudWeGo with two of its major sub-projects - Kitex and Hertz, comes into play. A solution with the potential to transform the way developers navigate the cloud environment, thanks to its robust, open-source technology.
