Redis Miniconf

All about Redis, the swiss army knife of scalable web apps

Redis is an advanced key-value store NoSQL database, often used as a cache (replacing Memcache) and messaging layer (replacing various message queues) in web apps.

As the glue that binds together larger components, Redis rarely gets the attention it deserves. You can be a hotshot NodeJS ninja or PostgreSQL guru, but without Redis your web app is unlikely to be scalable. Knowing what Redis is, how it works and how to use it effectively is an essential skill for any web developer.

Join us for the second Miniconf of 2014 as we examine Redis in detail. We've learnt from the first edition with AngularJS and restructured the day:

  1. The first half of the day will be a workshop for beginners, helping you get familiar with Redis, the data structures, API and command line. Advanced users can skip this.
  2. The second half of the day will be showcases by advanced Redis users, explaining how Redis glues their website together.
  3. The final part of the day is an open forum for any participant to open up their code and have their concerns addressed by an advanced user.

Ticketing is now closed. The event is sold out.

How and why Flipkart is reliant and glued to Redis as a data store for high performance promises shown to customers

A detailed overview of how Redis could be used for just more than a cache and the importance of data models. And how a single master-slave can effectively scale and when and why do we need redis clusters. It is to explain the difference and the leverage you get when you look at Redis as just more than a cache. more

Counting things, very fast, on the Internet

Realtime, user-facing statistics can really juice the user experience, especially for sites that are gamified or which implement complicated adaptive algorithms. Our test-prep app is both and I’ll be showing the stuff that went right and horribly wrong while building a realtime, user-facing statistics service for our web application. Hopefully, this experience will help you avoid many of the pitf… more

Rate limiting/monitoring with Redis

As a system grows and moves towards a Service Oriented Architecture, there is generally a need to monitor and limit the access rates of different modules or services. This session will be about a redis recipe for implementing a lightweight and generic rate limiting/monitoring library. The simplicity of redis data structures, persistence and its in memory speed makes it a perfect datastore for thi… more

Alternatives to Redis while not compromising on its speed

To know the options other than Redis Outline Redis enjoys a good following from the developers primarily because of its speed. It is the NoSQL data base of choice for the in-memory caching solutions. But it has its own limitations in the aspects of clustering, persistence, auto-sharding, auto-rebalancing etc. more
