Load-balancing is a must for everyone building scalable services, but every application’s needs are different. Jan Tattermusch provides an overview of basic load balancing concepts and describes existing gRPC load balancing solutions along with the pros and cons in a cookbook form, followed by a practical demonstration of these solutions.

All examples are publicly available in a GitHub repository, along with step-by-step instructions:
