Caching for fun and profit

Track: BoFs (Birds of a Feather)
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 8:30pm - 9:30pm
Location: E141

Moderator: Brian Moon, Senior Developer,

Anything goes. We can talk about memcached, Tugela, basic file caching... whatever.

More and more web sites are finding that they need to uses caching to increase their performance. There are those of us that have solved some problems. Others that are new to these techniques have a lot of questions. This BoF is an opportunity for web developers to share their ideas on caching.

Specifically, the dev team can talk about the 3 main types of caching we use and where each is applicable.

The floor will be open to cover alternatives to caching like data partitioning as well.
