its Fifth Annual User Conference

NGINX, Inc.,
the company based on the popular open source project and offering a
suite of technologies designed to develop and deliver modern
applications, today announced the agenda for its fifth annual NGINX
Conf user conference
. Held from October 8-11 at The Loews Hotel in
Atlanta, GA, attendees at this year's event will hear from experts at
industry-leading organizations including Audi, CapitalOne, AppNexus,
Charter, and Dropbox. They will offer insights on best practices,
emerging technologies, and community engagement tips to help
practitioners succeed on their journey from monoliths to microservices.

Coming together to discuss the "Journey to Microservices," attendees
will learn about the technologies necessary to help enterprises
modernize their application infrastructure. Attendees will learn about
NGINX technologies and see customers present on how they improved
customer experience, increase agility, or cut costs using the NGINX
Application Platform.

Featured presenters during the conference include:

  • Lakshmi Sharma, Head of Product Management, Networking, Google Cloud
  • Rohit Joshi, Director of Software Engineering, Capital One
  • Josh Ryder, Sr. Director Network and Cybersecurity Engineering and
    Operations, AppNexus
  • Jaime Panagos, Senior Director, Video Operations, Charter
  • Isa Vilacides, Quality and Productivity Engineering Director, CloudBees
  • Oleg Guba, SRE, Traffic-team, Dropbox
  • NGINX speakers include: Gus Robertson, CEO, NGINX, Inc. and Sidney
    Rabsatt, Vice President of Product Management, NGINX, Inc.

Additional presentations include strategic sessions, case studies, and
hands-on trainings for a variety of skill levels across the application
development and delivery landscape. With two full days of trainings
available, attendees can select the sessions that fit their needs and
can attend workshops and demos that will enhance their NGINX skills.

Breakout sessions will include informative presentations from industry
leading organizations, including:

  • Comcast on DevOps adoption and delivering high-growth service
  • Verizon on service mesh for microservices 2.0
  • on increasing developer throughput with unlimited user
    testing environments
  • Audi on using NGINX Plus as a web application firewall and API gateway
    for microservices

"Most enterprises find their technology strategy is now their business
strategy. They must provide compelling digital services to attract and
retain customers. Enterprises are looking to microservices to develop
the applications that underpin these services. But most struggle to find
the right balance of development and delivery across a mix of legacy,
monolithic applications and newer, open-sourced based microservices
environments," said Rob Whiteley, CMO of NGINX, Inc. "At NGINX Conf
2018, all sessions are geared toward helping attendees identify where
they are -- and more importantly where they should be -- along each step
of this journey and how NGINX's technology help achieve success."
