Memcache is an open source high-performance distributed caching system intended to speed up dynamic web applications by alleviating database load. LiveJournal, YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, SourceForge, Digg,
MyBlogLog, Flickr, Delicious and several other services rely on memcache.

This session will cover an introduction to memcache, its deployment, design approaches and real world memcache usage scenarios. Some insights on how Yahoo! has been scaling its products with memcache will also be discussed.

  • hey man, the topic looks very cool.. all the best.. see u there..kindly bring some demo app as well..

  • Thanks everyone for such a great response.

    Unfortunately, I will not be able to take up this session as I have to urgently travel out of Bangalore. I am trying to arrange an alternate speaker. If I couldn’t, will definitely take up this session either in some other open forums in near future or next barcamp!

    Sorry for inconvenience.

  • Hi Saurabh…this is one of the sessions I was looking forward to attend…hope you’ll find someone for this ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Cool topic. Feel free to ping me if you don’t find any other speaker.

    I am anyway planning to blog on memcache and a few alternate strategies.

    • Hey Yusuf: It would be awesome if you can take up this session. I have sent an email to you. In case you do not get it, mail me at ssahni [at]

  • My client is using this in our project. So I hope this should happen in this barcamp or we can plan with Saurabh Sahni or Yusuf Motiwala or both to have a small meet-up to have this session later.
