Using Redis to Create a Blazing Fast API App
Learn how to build a highly scalable, highly available, top-performing application with sub-60ms response times using Redis, the open-source in-memory NoSQL database.
This session will cover lessons-learned while implementing a Redis API App at the Bleacher Report, including:
Tung Nguyen is the first non-founder employee at Bleacher Report. and now Senior Director of Engineering.
Over the years, it's been quite an experience and adventure. Tung has scaled Bleacher Report from an obscure website pulling in 50k uniques a month to a household name and being the 2nd largest sports site in the world. It has been an intense ride over the years and the engineering challenges have been extremely rewarding.
On a more tactical level, what does Tung actually do?
Tung does a little bit of everything. Tung has ran and led the backend team, Tung has ran and led the QA team, Tung has ran and led the DevOps team and now Tung is running and leading the entire Bleacher Report engineering team. Ultimately, Tung is a developer at heart. He probably still codes way too much given his daily responsibilities, which is why other engineers catch him sneaking in his coding late at night.
