If there’s one idea that you should take away from this chapter, it’s that scripting with
Lua can greatly improve performance and can simplify the operations that you need
to perform. Though there are some limitations with Redis scripting across shards that
aren’t limitations when using locks or WATCH/MULTI/EXEC transactions in some scenarios,
Lua scripting is a significant win in the majority of situations.
Sadly, we’ve come to the end of our chapters. Up next you’ll find appendixes that
offer installation instructions for three major platforms; references to potentially useful
software, libraries, and documentation; and an index to help you find relevant topics
in this or other chapters.
