Together we'll build a reddit clone in PHP.

The app will have horrible performance and instead of improving by adding DB indexes etc...
we'll see how we can add caching to it in a very regular manner to bring it from 20s to 20ms of response time.

We'll also demonstrate:
- how it can work with user based data (session data that is different on each page)
- how it can apply to APIs
- how that cache can be extended to a CDN
- how we can promote cache re-usability
- strategies to operate such a cache at scale

For those that know about it, this is similar to (but not entirely equivalent) Russian Doll Caching.

Lots of code examples and visual diagrams helped to explain the non trivial concept of caching.

Really great. Two thumbs up

I really enjoyed your presentation and plan to share this with my team.

This was an excellent presentation. There were a couple of spots where I couldn't track what was happening because it's such a powerful technique. I don't know how to fix that but I will try this library.
