Whether you're looking to make your web app run faster or scale better, one great way to achieve both is to simply do less work. How? By using caches, the data hidey-holes which generations of engineers have thoughtfully left at key junctures in computing infrastructure from your CPU to the backbone of the internet. Requests into web applications, which span great distances and often involve expensive frontend and backend lifting are great candidates for caching of all types. We'll discuss the benefits and tradeoffs of caching at different layers of the stack and how to find low-hanging cachable fruit, with a particular focus on server-side improvements.

Presented by James Meickle of AppNeta
