Speaking Sessions

  • Top 10 Microservices with Redis

    5:00 PM Saturday   Room: Fireside C
    Most Microservices need a database. With SQL and Redis you have most of what you need. In this talk we'll share database tips and tricks using SQL & Redis for creating scalable Microservices. Examples include: user registration, session management, online presence, custom analytics, keyword search, product recommendations, product catalog, order management, and error message leaderboard. Demos will be made available via NodeJS & Spring Boot, and via general Redis command-line text.

  • Microservices and Serverless Speaker Panel – The Road Ahead

    9:15 AM Sunday   Room: Town Square B
    We have all heard for a while that microservices are the solution to all of our problems. Now serverless is emerging as an even smaller component of the new way of building applications piece by piece. In our zeal to adopt the latest in architectural approaches, have we given sufficient thought to where they are going or what comes next?

    If you are considering building an application with a microservice or serverless based architecture, come to this panel of experienced cloud developers and architects and learn what these technologies can do for you now, and what they will do in the future. Ask our panel questions on what works, what doesn't, and how to prepare today for the technology that's coming next.
  • Redis in Containers, and Kubernetes and Serverless ... Oh My!

    10:45 AM Sunday   Room: Fireside C
    According to Docker Hub Explore, Redis is the most popular database in containers. Some even say Redis is the most popular database on AWS. While running one Redis in one container is limiting, it can be very useful. But deploying Redis in a cluster of containers can give you scale and reliability your startup needs. In fact, some companies run 100's of instances of Redis as their primary database. In this talk, I'll share 5 popular use cases for Redis in Containers, Kubernetes and even Serverless. And I'll show you how to package Redis for deployment via Docker & Kubernetes. If I'm feeling gutsy, I might even show you how to run Redis on Windows.
