What you'll learn
- Learn a NoSQL Database
- Learn Why Redis Is Different than Mongo/Couch/Cassandra/Etc.
- Learn to Easily use Redis via the Client
- Learn to use Every Redis DataType
- Learn PubSub and Bonus Features
- By the end of this course you will be able to use Redis comfortably, and if you know a programming language you'll be able to easily integrate it into PHP or Python with the examples provided.
- Familiar with Terminal
- Familiar with a Relational Database Helps, but it's not required.
- Familiar with either PHP or Python helps
- Linux Ubuntu Preferred, but not required. Works on Windows and Mac, however Mac installation instructions not provided.
Redis is a powerful in-memory database. You could liken it to memcached yet with better data type handling. You may find yourself using Redis as a medium to process vast amounts of data.
Other examples may be using Redis for real-time chat logging, scoreboards, or simply a powerful caching engine. You will need to be familiar with a terminal to take this course. I recommend GitSCM for Windows, or Terminator for Linux,
This series is simple, we go through the Data Type and Commands, and you follow by example. We'll also integrate a PHP and Python client to show how easy it is to use as an abstracted adapter in two popular languages.
It's highly encouraged you use SSH or Linux to use the Redis CLI. The Windows binary works but it can be a bit unstable.
This course will guide you through the commands (Not every single one), but it will get you started so that it makes sense. This course will take around 2 - 3 weeks to fully understand the material and practice it.
Who this course is for:
- People looking to upgrade their skillset
- People who want to scale
- Software Developers
- Web Engineers
- PHP Developers
- Python Developers
- Database Administrators
My name is Jesse.
I was born in Michigan, but I've been living in Central Florida the past 10 years.
I've been programming since I was 12. Beginning with QBasic in school, IRC Scripting at home, and HTML in Netscape Navigator on weekends. In those days I had to "View Source" to figure out how to do anything! I wrote my first website at this age using the GeoCities free websites. I then moved to AngelFire for a while. Remember those days?
When I hit 20, I spent several years freelancing with the skills I picked up from terribly long nights of studying. Freelancing was difficult for me because being a salesman wasn't in my blood, but I enjoyed the coding parts! I primarily used Linux, PHP, MySQL, and CSS. Then jQuery a bit later.
These days I live in the corporate world. I work with a small team of people and I enjoy it. I'm doing all sort of things from building solid back-ends, REST API's, HTML5/JS games, Python Django, and sometimes a bit of monkey work.
I enjoy explaining programming not because I like to talk, but because I find it rewarding to help people along their way. In fact, I found it so rewarding that I created a Youtube channel with hundreds of videos covering programming topics.
I hope you can benefit from my years of learning, I try to present it in a simple way so you don't need wrestle with all the questions I had!
