Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

We’re excited to host the first NGINX conference this year – nginx.conf 2014 – you won’t want to miss it! Help us celebrate the 10th anniversary of release 1.0 by learning more about NGINX.

The conference begins with an optional day of training classes for people with either beginner and more advanced skills who want to boost their knowledge of and experience with NGINX and web performance techniques. Take this opportunity to accelerate your career with hands‑on training from an experienced instructor.

On Tuesday, the conference sessions begin and you will have the opportunity to meet and learn from real‑world experts – the engineering staff of NGINX as well as community power users. Come hear about NGINX use cases, insights, and best practices. You can be one of those presenters. If you’ve got a good NGINX story to share, we want to hear from you!

Submit your 40‑minute presentation ideas to the call for proposals by 11:59 PM PDT, August 1, 2014. We’re looking for content like:

  • NGINX use cases beyond serving static content
  • Scaling around bottlenecks in your application
  • Experiences developing in the NGINX ecosystem or codebase
  • A module you wrote or use
  • Shared information, not marketing

We look forward to seeing your talk submissions and insights into how you’re using NGINX to supercharge your web platform.

Stay tuned for registration details and other information about nginx.conf 2014, coming soon.

We hope to see you Oct. 20–22 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport for nginx.conf 2014 and to celebrate 10 years of NGINX!
