In this session, Timo describes how with NGINX Unit he’s able to use the app server as a core part of his applications and APIs, building on his years of experience with PHP and Node.js. He explains how to create, manage, and deploy powerful APIs with PHP and Node.js on top of NGINX Unit, and he shares some libraries he wrote for controlling NGINX Unit in those frameworks.

Topics include:

  • Refreshing the TLS certs used to encrypt communication between the API gateway and a service
  • Using dynamic routing to protect some parts of an API and applications from unauthorized access over the Internet, with the match option of NGINX Unit Route Objects
