Where do I start

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.

So from a MongoDB database application without caching, arms-without-redis-for-caching to one with caching, integrate-redis-for-caching.

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

Look into 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.
