Description

NGINX technical workshop

NGINX is a web server with high performance load balancing and content cache designed for modern web sites, applications and microservices - lightweight, easily configured and fast. But did you know there is a commercial version of NGINX that adds enterprise grade support and added features including session persistence, monitoring, configuration API and even more performance options?

This will be a technical workshop to introduce NGINX open source and NGINX Plus. Attendees with be provided with a free developer license for NGINX Plus, for the workshop and their own private use.

Workshop plan: We’ll provide a hosted VM for each candidate to use, pre-installed with a standard web application e.g. digital ocean with Wordpress.

We'll demonstrate potential performance and stability challenges with off-the-shelf apps - we'll run some attack tools!

Attendees to install NGINX Plus on hosted VM and gradually apply configuration to improve the performance and stability:

  • Basic proxying and load balancing, SSL configuration
  • Caching techniques
  • Rate limiting
  • Monitoring with extended status
  • Re-run attack tools, have we improved the availability of the app?

We will provide the VMs and set up a special interest slack channel to share keys, files and configuration. Please bring a compute device with an SSH client already installed.

Pizza and refreshments to keep the levels of concentration high.
