lecture: Contemporary Webserver Configuration - A Serving Suggestion
apt-get install apache2 is not enough anymore
Fast and secure web applications demand a sensible, modular and contemporary configuration of the webserver. We will show you how to configure Apache and nginx in a way so that they conform to current security and speed requirements.

Caching for faster access and futuristic (at least for Austria) topics like IPv6 and Http/2 will also be covered.
