Caching with Memcached


Comments are closed.

Excellent talk. Ilia covered an amazing amount of material in a short time without feeling rushed. Not only was the material covered in a theoretical way but was accompanied by short but informative real world examples.

You can really tell that Ilia knows exactly what he is talking about when it comes to Memcached. He covered so much information in this talk without making it feel rushed and somehow he managed to present in a way to keep everyone engaged and interested even though he had to cover so much in so little time. Loved this talk!!!

Good overview, but would have like an overview of setting up a memcached server at the beginning of the talk. Took me a little while to realized creating a new Memcached(); object didn't create the server....

Another great talk by Ilia, wow the knowledge here is excellent. Once again I am surprised by the ease of using some of these tools that ought to be used and how this speaker breaks it down so its so easy to understand and makes you ready to go home and implement.

I've been using memcached professionally for a couple of years and I still learned a lot. Great talk.

I learned an incredible amount in this talk! Great!

Ilia is a great speaker and incredibly knowledgeable. I've been using Memcached for over 2 years and I learned some new things in this presentation... impressive.

It takes a certain skill to both provide an overview of a topic and also reveal tips and tricks that even an experienced user might not know. Great talk. I am still not confident that I could deploy memcached, but I'll certainly give it a try!

I only attended part of this talk, so take my comments with that in mind. I like Ilia's presentation style, but I felt he should have used a better font for the source code. The font used did not clearly show the difference between upper case and lower case letters (it used smallcaps), which is very important when displaying source code for case sensitive languages.

Ilia is clearly a very good speaker and knew his topic cold. As with Varnish, I'm so far from needing such tools as MemcacheD that everything but the concept escaped me. Very useful info though.

Clear, perfectly paced presentation by the excellent Ilia. My only criticism is the all-capital font used for code. A five star presentation that made me want to use the MemcacheD extension.

Very nice slide!

Do you know how to run the touch command with Memcached?
Some time ago I read Memcached::get returns NULL in cases of not found items but I can't reproduce?

The get() method of memcached will return FALSE when data is not found. There is a not yet documented touch() method available in the extension. It takes key as a parameter.

Thank you - great news.

I found were I get the info from: It's notes within the changelog of pecl/memcached-2.0.0b1
- Change the return value for non-existing keys to be NULL rather than 'false', affects simple get only
