Practical Redis

Hands-on, code driven guide to Redis

About the Book

As the name suggests, Practical Redis is a hands-on, code-driven guide to Redis. Each chapter is based on an application (simple to medium complexity) which demonstrates the usage of Redis and its capabilities (data structures, commands etc.). The applications in the book are written in Golang and Docker Compose is used to spin up the applications (along with Redis) easily and quickly with a single command.

Here is a quick outline of the book contents

  • Hello Redis - quick tour of Redis capabilities including its versatile data structures
  • Redis: the basic data structures - intro to core Redis data structures with a simple news sharing app
  • Tweet analysis service - keep track of relevant tweets using a service which ingests tweets, consumes/processes them and produces queryable info in real time using reliable queues (Redis LISTs), SETs and HASHes
  • Extending Redis with Redis Modules - learn about the basics of Redis Modules and make use of ReBloom in a recommendation service

Coming soon ...

Here is the tentative list of chapters which are planned for future releases (please note that these are subject to change)

  • Pipelines and Transactions in Redis
  • Scalable chat application - Use Redis PubSub and Websocket to create a chat service
  • Stream processing with Redis - watch Redis Streams in action (new data structure in Redis 5.0)
  • Using Redis on Kubernetes
  • Redis and Kafka based application
  • Data partitioning in Redis - practical examples highlighting data sharding strategies in Redis
  • Redis high availability
  • Distributed co-ordination with Redis
