The vast majority of projects use Redis like it's Memcached, but Redis can give so much more. In this talk I'll give practical examples of use cases where Redis, with its very particular set of skills, outshines everything else I've tried. Bio: Daniel Magliola has been writing code since he was 7 years old, professionally since 16, and through those years has dabbled in multiple technologies. These days you'll find him trying to extract every last bit of performance out of web applications. Portfolio / Bio / CV / about me Note on length: I can fly through this talk in 25 minutes, I can probably also shorten it a bit more and do it in 20 (with no time for Q&A), but it's really a whirlwind. If I could have 30 or more that'd make it a lot more understandable by the audience :-) Note on dates: I can do August, but not September unfortunately.
