Configurable Configuration With Apache Httpd - Rich Bowen, Apache Software Foundation
In this age of automation, it's only natural that people would want greater scriptability in their web server configuration. From mod_macro to the syntax to various ways to set and use variables, Apache httpd 2.4 makes it much easier to deploy adapatable web server configurations.

In this talk you'll learn how to add intelligence to your server configuration.

External Identity And Authentication Providers For Apache Httpd - Jan Pazdziora, Red Hat
When HTTP 1.0 came out, it supported Basic Authentication. Since then, the majority of authentication operations moved to applications and frameworks, using internal datastores. As they were getting more popular, external authentication services like LDAP needed to be added to the application code or to framework's set of methods.
Introducing three Apache httpd modules that hope to simplify the application logic by moving the authentication, access control, and identity operations back to the Apache httpd, with application consuming the result of these operations: mod_authnz_pam for access control, mod_intercept_form_submit for PAM operations using application's native logon form submission, and mod_lookup_identity that can deliver user attributes and group membership from servers like FreeIPA via sssd and dbus.

mod_rewrite And Friends: URL Mapping And Manipulation With Apache httpd - Rich Bowen, Apache Software Foundation
mod_rewrite is still seen by many as magical incantations that will make your website rise to the top of the Google results. While this isn't true, it is an important tool to master as a web site administrator. Come learn how to read and write rewrite rules, and also about the many other ways to manipulate and map URLs on your Apache http server.

We'll cover mod_rewrite (of course), mod_speling, mod_substitute, mod_proxy_html, and many others.

Apache Traffic Server & Lua - The Perfect Match - Shu Kit Chan, Yahoo!
Apache Traffic Server is a fast, scalable and extensible HTTP/1.1 compliant caching proxy server. There are C APIs to let you write your own plug-ins and do something like modifying HTTP headers or modifying the response with additional content. Lua is a fast, powerful, lightweight and embeddable scripting language.

In this talk, we will introduce the new feature that embeds the power of Lua into the software and allows user to write plugins for ATS in Lua. We will also talk the implementation of this feature and our plan on improving and expanding it it.
