Symfony Cache has been around for a few releases. But what is happening behind the scenes? Talk focuses on how is it working, down to detail level on Redis for things like datatypes, Redis Cluster sharding logic, how it differs from Memcached and more.

Interesting and detailed topic, explained very well, but the rendition itself could be improved.

I will relay two tips that were given to myself too:
- do not write too much on the slides and "read" them, it will distract the listeners from what you say and fixate them on the text
- use branches or tags to have checkpoints during the live demo, to have a way for fast recovery when something goes wrong, as it always will

On the upside, hugely informative on an aspect of Symfony (and Redis) which I expect to be overlooked by many.

On the downside, lots of lists, might use a more "narrative" format.
Also would recommend replacing the term slave with replica, which Redis now supports, and is more inclusive.

Technical note, phpstorm is capable of zooming in and out, no need to change the font size manually, hopefully that will be of use.

Thanks for the feedback!
I have uploaded the slides for anyone who wants to have a quick look, but for demo SfDay will upload video later.

Q: During CLI part of demo, would it have been just as valuable with a recording of it to avoid some issues with one of the commands completely?

The talk itself could have been interesting because the key concept to grasp were there.
Unfortunately in my opinion, and as others already highlighted, the slides had to much text and also the rythm of the presentation was really slow; also the voice was too atonic.

The non-fluid exposure and information/text overflow made my interest on topic degrade very fast.
