Event review: Apache APISIX Meetup Shanghai topic sharing and video review.
Apache APISIX Meetup Shanghai was successfully held last Saturday (August 21st) 🎉🎉🎉🎉
The Meetup was initiated by API7.AI, and invited partners such as iQiyi, AirWallex, and other partners to come together with Apache APISIX technical experts, Apache APISIX PMC members, and community technical experts to discuss about The conference was a great opportunity to discuss Apache APISIX community development, industry practices and other topics.
Let's take a look back at some of the most memorable talks from the conference!
Instructor: Cong He
Personal Introduction: Senior R&D Engineer, IIG Infrastructure Department - Compute Cloud, mainly responsible for iQiYi Gateway development and operation and maintenance.
Detail of Topic: API gateway has become an indispensable part of the microservice architecture. It bears the sole gateway for services to the outside world, but also needs to meet the common functions of many applications. As an online video company, iQiYi has to carry tens of millions of calls every day, and has extremely strict requirements for data security, user request response time, and system stability, so the company needs to build a high-performance, highly available API gateway. This sharing briefly introduces the architecture of iQiYi API gateway and the functions implemented, including request distribution, conditional routing, Api management, flow restriction and fusion, security triple prevention, monitoring and alarming, and full link tracking.
Instructor: Xinxin Zhu
Personal Introduction: API7 Engineer, Apache APISIX Committer
Detail of Topic: Authentication is a very important part of zero-trust architecture. Authentication can effectively protect services from unauthorized malicious access, data leakage, and hacker attacks. APISIX, as a dynamic, real-time, high-performance API gateway, supports rich authentication plugins, and this sharing will introduce the benefits of centralized authentication and how to perform centralized authentication on APISIX.

Instructor: Yang Li
Personal Introduction: Head of AirWallex Technology Platform
Detail of Topic: Data is everywhere, and massive amounts of data are processed, transmitted, and stored all over the world every moment. However, the world of data is not a place outside the law, the collection and processing of data must comply with the laws of each country. The API gateway has a special position in the enterprise architecture and therefore plays a special role in the data sovereignty scenario.

Instructor: Yuansheng Wang
Personal Introduction: Co-founder & CTO of API7.AI
Details: Apache APISIX has been growing as a community since the first day of open source, and has quickly become the most active API gateway project in the world by winning the first place in many technical indicators in just two years, and defining the path that belongs exclusively to Apache APISIX: unified 7-layer traffic processing. One person may go fast, a group of people can go farther, Apache APISIX growth road thanks to you.
