5 Things You Might Not Know about NGINX

A session at LISA15

Wednesday 11th November, 2015

11:45am to 12:30pm (EST)

NGINX is a well kept secret of high performance web service. Many people know NGINX as an Open Source web server that delivers static content blazingly fast. But it has many more features to help accelerate delivery of bits to your end users even in more complicated application environments. In this talk we’ll cover several things that most developers or administrators could implement to further delight their end users.

Sarah Novotny leads the Developer Relations team for NGINX and is a technical evangelist. Novotny ran large scale technology infrastructures before web-scale had a name. In 2001, she co-founded Blue Gecko, a remote database administration company which was sold to DatAvail in 2012. She has curated teams; been a leader in customer communities focused on high availability web platforms; and is a program chair emeritus for O’Reilly Media’s OSCON.

Novotny talks obsessively about people, technology infrastructure and geek lifestyle.
