Caching has been a 'hot' topic for a few years. But caching takes more than merely taking data and putting it in a cache : the right caching techniques can improve performance and reduce load significantly. We'll also look at some major pitfalls, showing that caching the wrong way can bring down your site.

If you're looking for a clear explanation about various caching techniques and tools like Nginx and Varnish, as well as ways to deploy them in an efficient way, this tutorial is for you.

Cool tutorial. Gave a good insight on tools & techniques for data caching & performance tuning. Some benchmarking wouldn't have harmed, but all choices were wisely explained so to let attendance easily understand what can be the benefits of adopting explained techniques. Definitely glad of having attended it!

Bird's eye overview of caching & tuning techniques.
I'd wish Wim assume he's talking to seasoned developers and pull in really geeky stuff, php/memcached, nginx, tricks.

For a 'developing story', looking forward to see it popular as it gained some momentum.

Would have liked more depth. Especially in the beginning a lot of time was spent on explaining basic concepts that I believe the audience would already be aware of, considering the title of the talk.

Other than that, the talk was clear, there was plenty of time for questions and they were handled well. A decent amount of real-world tips that provided food for thought. I enjoyed it.
