Last year at O'Reilly's Open Source Conference I hosted a BoF (Birds of a Feather) about memcached. It was a popular event. So, this year, I decided to broaden the scope to caching in general. Its titled Caching for fun and profit. It will be Wednesday, July 25 from 8:30-9:30pm in Room E141.

Anything goes. We can talk about memcached, Tugela, basic file caching... whatever.

More and more web sites are finding that they need to uses caching to increase their performance. There are those of us that have solved some problems. Others that are new to these techniques have a lot of questions. This BoF is an opportunity for web developers to share their ideas on caching.

Specifically, the dev team can talk about the 3 main types of caching we use and where each is applicable.
