Too Long; Didn't Read

We're going to explore port forwarding and load balancing with Kong Gateway. Kong Gateway is a thin API gateway layer that sits in front of upstream services. We'll use a single, local Minecraft server on a non-default port, configuring Kong Gateway to load balance and port forward connection requests. The free trial of Minecraft doesn't allow connecting to multiplayer servers, which is what we'll be running for our project. You'll need to install the Minecraft game client and log in as a paid owner of the game.
