The previous 2 Chalk Talk videos were about introducing Varnish and explaining how it works.

In this 3rd video, we deep dive into the caching engine of Varnish to explain how you as a developer/webmaster can optimise your content for Varnish, to achieve the best cache hit rate.

There’s just one video left in this series, which will be about common mistakes made in Varnish and how to troubleshoot your Varnish caching.
