Welcome Session. What is REDIS? What is this meetup? Real-life use cases.

Let's meet to talk about REDIS, nosql, and a startup community.

We'll do a brief overview of REDIS, discuss ideas for future meetups, and show some applications for REDIS at Cinchcast (, such as using it as a caching layer in front of a database, pub-sub message queue for propagating messages to NodeJS, and as a session state.

    Great meetup - was actually my first. Props to Gilt Groupe for buying dinner for people including bottled water and soda. Second, Alex and Denny were super knowledgeable on the product. They were certainly trying to find their way and wondered what the meetup direction would take but it looks like they have found it based on subsequent meetup scheduling.

    Both Alex and Denny are knowledgeable about Redis and they are passionate about it as well. I was also glad to hear about some ancillary technologies such as node.js since i'm not familiar with it. All in all - looking forward to the next few!

    Alex did a great job. It was a super meet up. Got me really exited about trying redis as a replacement for memcached.

    After the introductory presentation, would anyone be interested in sharing their experiences with Redis with respect to failover strategies and clustering for high availability? Thanks

    Hello Everyone! Let's get the ball rolling on this! I can prepare a short 15-20 min. presentation about the problems i've faced and the solutions i've created, who else is in? ps. If we can't find a location, how about a webinar?
