Fernando Doglio has been working as a Web Developer for the past 13 years. In that time, he's come to love the web, and has had the opportunity of working with most of the leading technologies at the time, suchs as PHP, Ruby on Rails, MySQL, Node. js, Angular.js, AJAX, REST APIs and others. He's written two books on Node, and is always trying to get developers converted to it.
In the workshop we will be an hands on exercise on scaling Node.js by adding a Redis backend. During the exercise a Node.js server and bots will be developed which will simulate API requests to the server. Later on we explore different measurements to improve perfomance of the client-server setup introducing a Redis Server as a backend.
