  • I want to thank Robert for the questions, but especially Josiah for giving so many wonderful examples in this excellent interview. When I first joined Redis Labs I listed to this podcast ~10 times until I understood most of it. It provided me the foundation I needed to understand why developers love Redis and the many ways it gets used beyond just a cache.
