The three biggest challenges in programming are naming, cache invalidation, and off-by-one errors. Page caching falls in the second category, and—depending on your success—either makes your site lightning fast or annoys users with stale pages.
Join us for this month’s Couch Coding as we delve into advanced page caching as part of your development workflow.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Why Every Site Needs Edge Caching
We’ll talk about search engine optimization (SEO), protection from denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, and HTTPS optimization.
How Selective Cache Clearing Works
No staleness. No short cache lifetimes. No awkward URL structures. Learn how advanced page caching involves keying pages with invalidation data as they go out to browsers and invalidating those “keys.”
Security and Selective Invalidation at Global Scale
It’s even more challenging to scale storage, invalidation, and security to locations all over the planet. We’ll talk about Pantheon’s “cache once, hit everywhere” infrastructure, our approach to efficiently distributing “key” invalidations, and how these benefit high-traffic sites on Pantheon.
We’ll take time to answer any specific questions you may have about advanced page caching. Email firstname.lastname@example.org ahead of the webinar with any questions you’d like answered.
