First of all, I am doing well and I hope you are doing better. The first I heard about Redis, was a discussion about caching. This is the first time that I have added caching to my application.
This year, I came across this article
by the dev team.
The above article details what and how you should go about the project to submit and what to include.
So, I took one of my API, Nodejs apps, and added caching to it. The speed did improve a lot after the first request and I liked it. Bear in mind that this is the first time that I have included it in my application, from a first person's perspective.
Now, I am going to use the Redis-stack to work above project without MongoDB. You can find this project here:
ARMS - Ashita Rent Management System
old-README.md for the description. This repository use the redis stack instead of mongodb.
Hackathons are fun. I get to learn a new concept and see what awesome projects others have built.
