Serverless architecture opens up a world of opportunity for development, providing ease of use while deploying and operating at scale. But this can decrease visibility, making it difficult to see when your environment is misbehaving in terms of throughput, functionality, and performance. Tal Weiss introduces a successful new framework for debugging serverless architecture with real-world examples.

Marco Palladino explores the service mesh pattern, notes the reasons for its emergence, and outlines the technical requirements.
