I'll be speaking at LOADays next Sunday about Varnish.
If you happen to be around, come say hi -- I'll be there all day!
Varnish Internals -- Speeding up a site x100
In this talk we'll look at the internals of Varnish, a reverse proxy with powerful caching abilities.
We'll walk through an HTTP request end-to-end, manipulate it change it in ways that no one should ever do in production -- but it'll proof how powerful Varnish can be.
Varnish is a load balancer, caching engine, its own scripting language and a fun way to deep-dive in to the HTTP protocol.
