Nginx was at the core of web application delivery for many years. We are eager to share our experience and view of microservices architecture for website developers, and show a few demos of new and upcoming nginx features.

Specific topics include:

  • Portability of programming languages and development tools
  • Hybrid deployments using multiple clouds and containers
  • Using nginx as the “glue” behind the services
  • Quick start with nginx

The more conceptual part of this talk will describe fitting the apps and development teams together with operations teams, and using a/b deployment features as an example.
