Going into this talk I knew very little about Redis so appreciated that this talk covered so much. It was a little bit more than a into to the topic. I will have to review the material at some point.
Knew nothing about Redis going in to the talk. Seemed to be a deep dive on the features of Redis. I might have gotten more out of it with some PHP code examples on the basics. Also, I heard a lot of issues that Redis users have to deal with. Maybe this content could be highlighted a bit more with comments about severity and whether or not these are just edge cases. Slides could have used some spark, too ... black and white with thin font added nothing to the talk. Any talk at the end of a conference is tough, though ... good job.
I've had contact with Redis before but the presentation offered some good tips and tricks about good places to implement the service. Examples interspersed through the presentation might have been more useful though. It was nice to get a concrete performance comparison between predis and php-redis though.
[duplicate comment, whoops!]
Very good intro and "no so" intro talk on Redis, covering a lot of ground. I would have tried to include a short demo but I know there was much time to do so.
Thanks for your comments and suggestions.
It is always complicated to make a talk like that useful to both the people who are seeing what is Redis for the first time and also to the people that have been running it in production for some time.
This is why I did not put any PHP code examples, since both clients are really straightforward. Anyway, @Chad, you can see some good examples here: https://github.com/nrk/predis/tree/v0.8/examples
About the demo, I agree that it would probably have helped to have some Redis datasets prepared and check performance or something similar.
I thought about that when I was preparing the talk but in order to do that, I would´ve had to skip some topics and this is why I took the approach to have lots of contents in the slides so that they can be useful in the following weeks when people go back to work and hopefully they will give a try some of the recipes or other things explained.
Anyway, thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate :)
Wish the talk had more PHP involved in it. I was hoping to learn more about integration more so then using Redis itself. Id like to leave the management to my sys admin and focus on how to implement it in my code :P Other then that great job on the talk Ricard!
5 stars: this guy knows what he's talking about. I learned a couple of really cool tricks. I also like Ricard's confidence and presentation style.
Next time around I would like to see more hands-on examples of typical Redis configurations. For example about Sentinel.
I liked the way Ricard approached redis and how you can scale with it, I wish we'd seen more concrete php examples, but besides that it was an interesting talk and I feel I haven't used the whole potential of redis, so I'm motivated to put in practice some of the tips and best practices Ricard Mentioned.
Redis is completely new to me so I got a lot out of this talk. I would have liked to see code examples and possible caveats, though. Great nevertheless!
