I would like to share with you a sample repo to start and help you continue your journey learning istio.
If you are not familiar with Istio and just know it by name or the internet waves brought you here you can start by reading this very tiny historical background
If you are familiar with microservices and containers and preferably Kubernetes then you are set to play with istio right away.
the only prerequisite is having a Kubernetes cluster, and no you don’t have to go to AWS or Google cloud, you can have your own one on your local machine, a fully blown multi-node cluster with one command.
check this fantastic tool to do that it’s a very quick setup and easy enough to follow through: https://github.com/kubernetes-sigs/kind
now that being done you can follow the demo.md command by command it’s all done with a Makefile to group commands in sets that make them easier to understand and execute.
jump to the demo file to start and enjoy:
