In the first Chalk Talk video, we looked at what Varnish can do. In this second video, I explain how Varnish does this.

As usual, if you like a Dutch written version, have a look at the company blog.

Next videos will focus more on the technical internals, like how the hashing works, how to optimize your content & site and how to debug Varnish.
