Remote Software Coding and Tutoring From Paradise with Rick Hurst (44:01 minutes to watch)

An interview with Rick Hurst @rickhurst that touches practically everything. My take: “Redis – ar-ey-dee-ie-ess – it’s very very good”.

Redis Sentinel & Redis Cluster – what? (<3 minutes to read – seriously)

Speaking of very very good, here’ a sweet and short piece from Jan-Erik Rediger @badboy_ that explains in the simplest terms what Sentinel and Redis cluster are #InstantlyGolden

The future of lettuce (8 minutes to read)

The future, as told by Mark Paluch @mp911de, author of the Java lettuce Redis client. I’m not using lettuce (I don’t Java) but Mark’s efforts at maintaining his project are commendable – he updates it all the time with major capabilities and in my book passion means quality.

Redis & MongoDB: Stop Big Data Indigestion Before It Starts #MongoDB #slides

These are the slides from the talk I gave two days ago at #MongoDBWorld 2015 about an amazing use pattern for the two best-complementing databases there are – Redis and @MongoDB. The session wasn’t recorded regrettably (any chance of fixing that next year? Meagen Eisenberg @meisenberg) and slides are worthless by themselves (or so I’d like to hope), so feel free to hit me with any questions! BTW, although I had a nasty cold it was a great event to be at with buzz a-plenty, excellent sessions and amazing people. I also finally hooked up in the flesh with Tim Spann @PaaSDev who is, although usually uncredited, one of my dependable sources for content 🙂 OTOH, despite having womanning/manning booths right across from each other, I did not get to meet Nikki Tirado @NikkiTirado and I fear an anti-climax once we do in all eventuality and fullness of time. Last tidbit, regardless my cold, the night before the session I had a mild case of indigestion that had kept me up… I’m such a cliche 🙂

Redis 3.0.2 and Redis 2.8.21 are out (3 minutes to read)

Besides that, there is also a slew of new Sentinal stuff and a tweaked ZADD.
