I led a team of part-time English profs who created Hypergrammar http://www.uottawa.ca/academic/arts/writcent/hypergrammar/ at the University of Ottawa in 1993-94 — an early web teaching application consisting of about 1,000 static HTML pages generated from a single SGML source document (many students didn't have personal Internet access yet, so they had to be able to bring the pages home on a disk).
It's been rethemed since I left the university in 1996, but otherwise, it still just works as written over 20 years ago (longer than many of the students now using it have been alive). That's a hell of a long time to be able to amortize an IT investment.

3:00pm - Igor Sysoev of NGINX - NGINX: Past, Present and Future
Ever wonder what the original use case for NGINX was? Igor will talk about the origin of the nearly 10 year old Open Source project; how it has evolved to the dominant high-performance web server it is today and, of course, the future that is being charted today.

5:15pm - Yichun Zhang (agentzh) of CloudFlare - NGINX, Lua, and Beyond
Let’s walk through the basic features and use cases of my most popular plugins which are also packaged into the OpenResty bundle. The highlight will be the ngx_lua module upon which complicated NGINX extensions and even complete web applications can be easily built.
I will also touch on how ngx_lua is powering millions of request per second at CloudFlare as well as how I ensure reliability with the Test::Nginx test scaffold and the associated NGINX test cluster running atop Amazon EC2 for automated testing.
Last is an overview of CloudFlare's dynamic tracing tools based on systemtap used for production profiling and troubleshooting both NGINX and LuaJIT.
