Nginx is a web server that packs a lot of punch in a small package. We will explore useful built in debug tools, powerful load balancing, reserve caching mechanisms and how to augment Nginx by loading in additional modules.
We will explore how to make Nginx talk directly to Memcached / Redis (perfect for APIs, without hitting your application), proxy functionality, improved headers manipulation, Lua in the config and the ability to query MySQL / Postgres among other things.
This is only the tip of the iceberg. I will take you on a journey to explore the hidden corners of Nginx!
