Udemy class on nginx

Published: Jan 15, 2021 by Holger Hoefling

Finished the Udemy-class NGINX Fundamentals: High Performance Servers from Scratch (see certificate).

Overall it was a very informative and well paced class that gives a good overview on nginx and the different use cases. While likely not enough to really run production servers, it gives enough knowledge on topics such as

  • hosting a website
  • redirecting traffic
  • running workers for other services (such as PHP)
  • traffic shaping
  • authentication
  • reverse proxy
  • etc. to put the student in a position to be able to look up the missing pieces on websites or the nginx documentation. As the class is also just 4 hours of videos long, I can recommend it.

hdf5r version 1.3.3 released

Another maintenance release of hdf5r. An update to the bit64 had caused a test to fail. The error was actually in the test itself, not the code it tested and was failing due to another bug that had been fixed in bit64. All fixed again.
