Advanced Redis data structures
Amir Salihefendic 31.01.2015
I will showcase and explain following projects:
A powerful Python cohort analytics library using Redis'es bitmap feature
Was mainly built because I did not want to pay $2000+/USD/month to MixPanel for cohort analytics.
A highly specific fixed list data structure that can be used to optimize timelines (such as Twitter's home screen).
Implemented in Python using Redis.
Optimizing further with Lua scripting
How to move away from Python and into Lua scripting when you need to optimize further.
