About the author: Usama Dar has over 13 years experience working with software systems. He has worked with systems with mission-critical requirements of scalability and high availability.

Nginx is a free, open-source, high-performance HTTP server and reverse proxy, as well as an IMAP/POP3 proxy server. Nginx is known for its high performance, stability, rich feature set, simple configuration, and low resource consumption.

Nginx Module Extension teaches readers to write powerful and flexible configuration files. Readers will also gain knowledge about Nginx’s modular architecture, available modules, and their intricate details. The book will make users familiar with modules like PostgreSQL and Memcached and will teach them how to optimally configure them.

Nginx Module Extension starts by teaching users to compile the Nginx source on multiple platforms. Readers will learn the synopsis, directives, and practical examples of the core, optional, and third-party Nginx modules before familiarizing themselves with Nginx internals, enabling readers to write custom modules. The book will help readers to learn about the flexibility of the Nginx configuration and how to enable and disable various options while building from the source.

This book is intended for advanced users, system administrators, and developers of Nginx modules. Readers need to have prior experience with using Nginx as a web server and basic Nginx configuration changes. Proficiency in C programming and advanced operating system knowledge on Linux kernel, for example, would also come in handy.
