Caching Tutorial 2020- System Design Basics

Caching is one of the most important concepts for understanding how to scale systems. Large applications like Twitter and Facebook wouldn't be possible without extensive caching to boost performance. In this video I'll cover:

  • What caching is
  • How it works and why you need it
  • Distributed Caching
  • Cache eviction
  • Cache consistency
