June 2015 Meeting

PRESENTATION: Caching Strategies

Presentation by Ben Ramsey (@ramsey),

One of the biggest bottlenecks in an application is the point at which data is requested from some source, be it a traditional database, web service, or something else. One method to overcome these bottlenecks is the use of caches to store pages, recordsets, objects, sessions, and more. In this talk, we’ll explore a variety of caching tools and mechanisms including Memcached, Redis, reverse proxy caches, CDNs, and more.
