5 Reasons You Should Attend RedisConf 2021

Join thousands of Redis enthusiasts for our free virtual conference, held April 20-21, 2021.

Rediscover the power of real-time data at RedisConf 2021! Registration is now open for our annual real-time data conference, to be held virtually on April 20-21. Thousands of developers, cloud architects, devops professionals, and IT leaders from around the globe will join Redis Labs product leaders, architects, partners, and experts to dive into the latest Redis capabilities and best practices. 

Explore demos, pro tips, and new features designed to help you build competitive advantage by delivering real-time digital experiences at any scale, for critical use cases like gaming leaderboards through fraud detection for financial services to real-time inventory for retailers. Brush up on your Redis skills with our training courses or show off what you know by building with Redis in our hackathon, where we’re giving away $100,000 total in prizes! And throughout it all, you’ll meet and network with other Redis enthusiasts eager to share and learn from each other.

Here are five compelling reasons to attend RedisConf 2021:

1. Hear exclusive live keynotes and gain valuable insights in dozens of breakout sessions

This year we’re offering three main tracks:

  • Build with Redis, a track for developers
  • Operate Redis at Scale for DevOps, IT Ops, and architects
  • Redis Industry Solutions, exploring how Redis is used to solve problems in retail, financial services, gaming, tech, and IoT shops

With something for everyone, you’ll be sure to learn a new feature, pro tip, or best practice for your Redis applications. All breakout sessions will be available for on-demand viewing, but the keynote sessions that will be followed by fireside chat with industry luminaries will be broadcasted live. Make sure you mark your calendars, as those are keynotes you don’t want to miss!  Stay tuned for our full list of speakers!

2. Expand your Redis knowledge with exclusive training

We’re offering four brand new training courses, each combining a video-based, on-demand component coupled with optional, but recommended, virtual live sessions with the instructor. In addition to the live sessions, you’ll have exclusive access to a dedicated Discord channel to support your learning. The four courses are:

  • Running Redis at Scale
  • Redis and Spring: Building High-Performance RESTful APIs
  • Redis and .NET: Building High-Performance RESTful APIs
  • The Node.JS Redis Crash Course

The courses and live sessions will be conducted the week prior to RedisConf, beginning on Monday, April 12, but the courses will be available on-demand throughout the rest of the conference.

3. Challenge yourself to “Build on Redis” in the hackathon

Redis is not only blazing fast, it’s also incredibly versatile—you can build anything and everything with Redis instead of having to rely on multiple databases. The theme of the Hackathon is “Build on Redis.” Whether collecting billions of events (Redis Streams), storing JSON (RedisJSON), searching (RediSearch), analyzing (RedisTimeSeries), recommending (RedisGraph), processing events (RedisGears), or detecting fraud (RedisAI), with Redis you can do it all—and do it in efficiently and in style. 

Join the hackathon to show us what you can build on Redis for a chance to win big prizes totaling $100,000! Registration for the hackathon is also open now and hacking starts on Thursday, April 15. 

4. Surprises are in store

Last year we invited attendees to explore the virtual Redis world, where nearly 4,000 Redis lovers created custom avatars, hung out in themed group-discussion rooms, talked to other attendees in the Lounge, and played more than 1,500 games of Redis Pong. 

We’re planning an even better conference for 2021, with plenty of opportunities for you to connect with peers and win exciting prizes. Stay tuned because you won’t want to miss all the fun!

5. It’s free!

Seriously—we’re providing full access to our training courses, keynotes, breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and more, completely free of charge. And even if you can’t attend RedisConf live on Tuesday and Wednesday, April 20-21, you’ll still get access to all the sessions on-demand to view whenever it’s best for you.
