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.
We'll install Redis on Linux, you can optionally use Windows but a CLI and Linux is preferred.
A glance at the Redis configuration.
The basics of using Redis Commands.
Using the Set Data Type.
Using the Sorted Set Data Type, which is like a set but has an order to it based on a score for each value. This adds many more commands to this data type, we'll cover a bulk of them.
HyperLogLog is used for Counting. This is an overview of why you might use it.
This allows to have a chatroom-like system already built out. Subscribe a Client to a channel, and Publish Messages. It's pretty straight forward and is a perfect foundation for a chat room and probably a lot of other creative things you could think up!
Transactions are for making sure a bundle of commands all execute succesfully, otherwise it will fail. You will see the failure in action too! This is pretty much like an SQL transaction.
The current connection commands which are terribly simple to use.
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!
