Accompanying an infographic of results from our 2020 NGINX user survey, we present key takeaways about the state of app delivery: the rising dominance of microservices and containers, the most popular associated technologies, and the challenges faced by app delivery professionals.
We present the four winners of the 2020 NGINX Hackathon for Good, who each created an app to help people affected by a social issue, using NGINX Open Source and NGINX Unit. The winning apps address unemployment, social justice volunteerism, and transparency around charitable giving.
The first NGINX for Good hackathon takes place September 14-17, 2020, coinciding with the NGINX Sprint virtual conference. Working with a team, you'll build a website or application that helps others. The winning app will be hosted by NGINX for six months.
We announce the latest branches of NGINX Open Source, the stable 1.18 branch and the mainline 1.19 branch. New to the stable branch are dry-run mode for request rate and connection limiting; protection against timing attacks; more support for variable parameters, and more.
