NGINX Core

NGINX Core

Summary

NGINX Core is an 8 hour course that provides the foundation you need to administer, configure, and manage NGINX using best practices. Through lecture and hands-on activities you implement NGINX as a web server, load balancer, and as a reverse proxy. You'll secure your site with SSL/TLS and you'll learn how to monitor and troubleshoot your site with live activity monitoring, custom logging, and dynamic server configuration using the NGINX API. Whether you are new to NGINX, starting your first NGINX project, or refining your DevOps skills, NGINX Core will give you a solid foundation. NGINX Core is also a pre-requisite to more additional training topics like NGINX Load Balancing , NGINX Caching  and others.

Description

If you're new to NGINX, NGINX Core is the place to start. If you’re self-taught, or have some working experience with NGINX, NGINX Core will help you complete your understanding of NGINX. In NGINX Core, you implement the most common use cases for NGINX - web server, proxy server, and load balancer - in a secure, scalable way. As you do, you'll build a solid foundation for moving on to additional topics.

NGINX Core combines lecture, instructor demos, and hands-on activities to expose participants to NGINX. Participants will be given a pre-configured, personal training environment for class activities. Each lecture and instructor demo in NGINX Core is followed by hands-on activities in which participants implement the use case in question. For example, following the lesson on Serving Static Content, participants implement a basic web server that serves static content in their training environment. Participants learn the the NGINX language by using directives in configuration files. As participants complete Proxying Connections, they add a simple reverse proxy server. In later modules they add security (HTTPS), variables, maps, routing, and rewrite and redirect requests.
