Node and Redis

This talk will follow the evolution of a simple application, beginning with a naive approach of storing data in memory, an explanation of why this fails when using multiple service instances (e.g. with Node cluster), and finally a revamped version storing state in Redis.

We'll also look at performing ato1mic operations using both the simple MULTI/EXEC commands, and the more complex EVAL/EVALSHA commands.
