Redis: Data Cheeseburgers
Learn about Redis and how you can use it with your applications.
Explaining Redis is tough, it’s easy to say “a data structures server” or “memcached on steroids” or something more jargon filled. It’s not exactly a key value store, it’s definitely not a relational or document-oriented database. Usually as programmers we have to bend our data into a table or document to save it, but with Redis we can persist data as we conceptually visualize it. You may have heard that Redis is super fast, is being used for everything from analytics to job queues, and even on large sites such as Craigslist. Learn about the basics of Redis and we'll cover some use cases so you can see how to integrate with your applications. Tasty!
