Catch DEV Lead Software Engineer Ridhwana Khan’s talk at Rubyday 2023

Hey DEV Community! We are SO excited to announce an upcoming conference talk by our Lead Software Engineer Ridhwana Khan 🤩🎉

@ridhwana will be presenting at Rubyday 2023, a Ruby-focused conference on June 15 in Verona, Italy. She will be presenting on caching strategies on—the very site you're using right now!

We’ve always put a lot of effort into performance at DEV. We want our users to be able to see their content almost instantaneously when interacting with our site.

In order to do so we’ve placed emphasis on caching. We’ve had to ask ourselves questions like: what are the right things to cache? Which layer in the stack would be best to cache it? And how will this affect the overall performance?

During this presentation, I’d like to show you some of the caching strategies we have in place and discuss how they’ve sped up the interactions within our site.

We are so proud of Ridhwana and so excited for her talk! If you're attending Rubyday (or happen to be local to Verona), definitely check it out.
