I’m going to give a free talk on nginx’s internals next month (September 19), in Guangzhou, China.
I’ve been reading the source code of nginx for a few days. Digging into this charming code is really a pleasant experience, though at first glance it appeared a little bit difficult to understand. Nginx becomes more and more popular, but unfortunately there is not enough documentation on its architecture and implementation. Now that I have spent a considerable amount of time reading the source code and have gained some knowledge, why not share it with those who want to know things under the hood?
So, if you are interested in this talk and you can be in Guangzhou that day, feel free to join in. Please comment on this post or drop me an email to let me know which parts you are interested in (see the mind map above, draft version though).
There might be a thousand Hamlets in a thousand people’s eyes. Note that I’m not Igor, and the only way I try to understand the nuts and bolts is by reverse engineering it, hence I can’t guarantee you no mistakes or misunderstandings in my talk. And frankly, it is not a trivial topic after all, not only because of the size of nginx’s code base, but also its elaborate design.
The speech will be in Chinese while slides will be in English. Specifics of time and location are coming soon. Stay tuned.
