Make your code 10x faster: caching strategies

, Lead Developer @Hyperpublic

Ever wonder why Google returns the query results so darn fast? They cache their search results! Caching is an extremely powerful concept. Much of the modern computer infrastructure involve caching for performance enhancement.

We will first take a look at caching in the general term: what it means, where and how it's used. Then take a deeper dive into practical knowledge about caching for web technologies.

Topics we will cover:
  • Survey of caching techniques on different levels of the application stack
  • Theories and uses of hashtables
  • How to build a general-purposed caching layer for a web app
  • Tools to think about when building a caching layer
  • Snack break

This class is created for hackers who want to learn more about turning a hack into a real product, and for curious minds who want to learn one of the best tricks coders use to make their products lightening fast!

Note: There will be snacks and drinks at this seminar! All proceeds will be donated to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

Lead Developer @Hyperpublic
I'm the lead developer at Hyperpublic, a data platform for location information. Before this, I was a back-end engineer turned product manager at Clickable

I write my code mostly in Ruby, although I would pick up javascript, python or C when called upon. I would like to show you how Computer Science principles can change the way you think about programming.
