Redis: Beyond the key-value store

Moderated by: Tague Griffith
7:00pm8:00pm Monday, May 8, 2017
Location: Meeting Room 9
Level: Beginner

Redis is one of the most popular and most advanced NoSQL databases around, but it is frequently used as nothing more than an in-memory cache. Join fellow Redis enthusiasts to learn about using Redis beyond basic key-value caching, see how fellow Redis users are using advanced data structure and features to build apps, and contribute your own stories from working with Redis.

Redis Labs’s Tague Griffith moderates a discussion on using Redis beyond caching to build applications. Tague starts by explaining how he uses Redis as a queuing system (with disk persistence) for a large-scale (25 billion operations/day) distributed system before opening up the discussion to the audience, finding out how attendees have used Redis for more than a key-value cache, including features used and challenges encountered. Tague also initiates a discussion on what is keeping users from using Redis’s advanced features.
