    SHOW NOTES:

    Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background and some of the things you work on at Lyft.

    Topic 2 - Lyft was the original creator of the Envoy proxy project. As Lyft was going through their migration from a monolith to microservices, when did they realize that they needed to start creating a service mesh.

    Topic 3 - What functions of Envoy does Lyft use for both networking and security?

    Topic 4 - How does Lyft manage who interacts with the Service Mesh, since it has impacts on the applications (microservices) and the infrastructure teams (networking, security)?

    Topic 5 - What recommendations would you make to any other teams that are evaluating Envoy or Service Mesh technologies?
