OpenResty is a full-fledged web platform that integrates Nginx, LuaJIT, and Lua libraries. It allows for the construction of high-performance web applications capable of handling 10K ~ 1000K+ connections in a single box. OpenResty is used by Alibaba, CloudFlare, and Tumblr, among others.
In this instructor-led, live training, participants will learn how to use OpenResty to build a number of demo solutions, including a web application, web service, and a dynamic web gateway.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
Turn an nginx web server into a web application server
Use the Lua programming language to script nginx C modules and Lua modules
Run server-side web applications completely inside the Nginx server
Integrate OpenResty with remote backends such as MySQL, PostgreSQL, Memcached, and Redis
