The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (of Caching)

A session at All Your Base Conference 2013

Friday 18th October, 2013

9:40am to 10:25am (GMT)

Caching -- we all do it, in a browser, in memcached, and often in the form of precomputation, like the specialized stores used by Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit. This talk discusses some of the problems with precomputing (or denormalizing) your data, and argues for a new, expressive dataflow framework which operates over many systems.
