Web Server Load Balancing with NGINX Plus

We’ve created an awesome lineup of speakers for nginx.conf 2014 from companies such as Google, CloudFlare, Groupon, Spotify, Box and, of course, NGINX. Sponsored by HP, ARM, 3Scale, Engine Yard, WordPress, New Relic, AppDynamics, and others, we’re very excited to host our first conference this October 20–22 in San Francisco!

Want a free all‑access pass to nginx.conf 2014? Here’s your chance. All you gotta do is take part in the nginx.conf social media giveaway sweepstakes.

How to Enter

The sweepstakes starts today, October 3, 2014 – so get started! All you need to do to be entered to win is submit via Twitter a post about why you’d like to attend nginx.conf using the hashtag #nginxtix. Want extra credit? You can get one additional entry for tagging three developer friends, or creating a blog post or video as part of your submission.

How We’ll Select and Notify Winners

We’ll be randomly selecting two winners. The first drawing will be on October 9, based on all qualified entries made on or before October 8. The second will be conducted on October 16, based on all qualified entries received by October 15. We’ll notify selected winners on Twitter within one day of each of the drawings.
