Take the NGINX Super User Challenge

Become an NGINX Super User to showcase your knowledge and expertise.

Are you a full stack developer, engineer or API designer? Do you know how to build an API Gateway, load balancer or reverse proxy?

apiConnections has partnered with NGINX to bring you a staged program to prepare you for the Super User assessment.

Topics covered:

  • NGINX configuration context logic
  • NGINX as reverse proxy
  • HTTP load balancing
  • NGINX Instance Manager
  • NGINX as API Gateway
  • NGINX Ingress Controller
  • NGINX App Protect

How it works:

Sign up for the challenge below. Over the next 30 days, we will send you a study guide every few days for one of the Super User topic areas. Each study guide will be a short summary of the topic, with links to further resources such as videos and documentation.

At the end of 30 days, we will hold a one-hour live, interactive study prep session. This will be held online, with an opportunity for a limited number of participants in Singapore to attend in person.

You will then be well prepared to take the Super User online assessment.

What the guides look like:

The guides are available in both written and video form. Here is a sample of the video recordings: NGINX Super User study guides and recordings
