Embracing Enterprise: WURFL is now a Certified Module for NGINX Plus






Luca Passani, CTO @ScientiaMobile “A man who is not a Liberal at twenty has no heart. A man who is not a Conservative at forty has no head.” – Attribution is controversial At the beginning of my professional career I was a staunch supporter of Open Source. As a young engineer, I had no budget, I was not supposed to have a budget, and I had been trained by my years in college to do things without a budget.

“A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.“ Pretty much everyone must have heard several instances of the “you are not a man until…” sentence followed by some more or less moronic action.

HTTP and Mobile: The Missing Header
