NYC Redis Tech Talk Featuring Lukas Sliwka, Vice President Engineering @Grindr

Redis Labs has teamed up with Database Month, the New York City based festival for NoSQL, NewSQL, and big data.

This year we’re hosting a Tech Talk titled “Using Redis to Create a Blazing Fast Mobile App” and featuring Redis enthusiast Lukas Sliwka. Lukas is the VP of Engineering at Grindr, one of the world’s leading mobile dating apps, used by millions of people in over 200 countries.

Network and data access latency can kill mobile app performance. This problem is even more difficult to solve when building a mobile application that requires global availability. Grindr used Redis to overcome a series of performance challenges, which enabled Grindr to bring its service as close to its customers as possible.

In this Tech Talk you will learn:

  • How network and data access latency can devastate your application.
  • How to architect your mobile cloud architecture using Redis to provide the best performance in all countries around the world.
  • How managed services can help you achieve a globally scalable mobile cloud architecture.

We hope you can join us for this session on Tuesday, April 21st, at 6:30PM at 557 Broadway, New York, NY. RSVP here!
