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.
