In the realm of edgy new database technologies, Redis is the new kid on the block, but how to best use it for your app can be a daunting question. Redis excels at super-fast caching, but what if you need to cache something more complicated than just text?

Enter Ampere, the Ruby ORM for Redis. Ampere is inspired by other ORMs that came before it, like Mongoid and DataMapper, uses a similar API, and it brings meaningful data structures and relationships to the Redis party. Want to cache a blog post that has many comments? No problem! Need to write an event-driven app that needs backup from a super-fast data store but don't want to figure out how to use Redis yet? Ampere's got you covered.

Join the party and find out how.

    Talks was a bit short, but the company was good as always.

    Ampere seemed super cool - the presentation was a bit short, but I enjoyed the conversational Q&A at the end

    The meetup started over half an hour behind schedule. Other than that it was a great experience

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
