Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

We’re hosting the first NGINX User Summit of 2015 in San Francisco on Monday, March 30!

This event is for you if you want to learn more about how NGINX Plus and NGINX Open Source can boost the performance of your applications. Spend the morning training with us, the afternoon learning from expert users, and the evening socializing with fellow members of the NGINX community.

New Summit Speakers Announced!

During the afternoon, we’ll kick off with keynotes from Chris Richardson (@crichardson), creator of the original, and me (@sarahnovotny) – I’m the Technical Evangelist and Community Manager at NGINX.

Lightning talks will feature innovative technologists sharing tips and tricks for optimizing NGINX Plus and NGINX to maximize the performance and scale of your applications:

  • Andrew Stein (@steinalicious) – Co-founder and Chief Scientist at Distil Networks, where he has worked on everything from identity management to digital signage
  • Dustin Whittle (@dustinwhittle) – Developer Evangelist at AppDynamics, focused on helping organizations manage their application performance
  • Valentin V. Bartenev (@ngx_vbart) – Experienced NGINX developer, known for his work on the thread pools implementation and the SPDY module
  • Yossi Koren (@yossiko) – Solutions architect specializing in distributed architecture and following a service-oriented model to effectively integrate enterprise, web, and mobile services

Thanks to our Social Hour Sponsor, Solarflare!

During the social hour, sponsored by Solarflare, you’ll enjoy appetizers and drinks (beer!) as you have face time with your fellow attendees, learning how they’re making the most of their applications with NGINX Plus and NGINX, and sharing your story. You’ll also get the chance to speak directly with members of the NGINX team and have your say about future features.

Don’t Forget about Training

Want to improve your NGINX skills? The day kicks off with a half-day, instructor-led NGINX Fundamentals course, in which you’ll learn to install, configure, and maintain NGINX Plus and NGINX.

The phenomenal rise of NGINX is because of our supportive community. For us, the user summit is part of our commitment to connect with you, and if you are passionate about NGINX – as an NGINX Plus or NGINX user – we look forward to seeing you at the first NGINX User Summit of 2015 at RocketStudios @ RocketSpace in San Francisco!
