I have written multiple posts on caching but none that are tailored specifically for beginners. What kinds of things do you think would be valuable to cover? I might add it to my list of things to write about 😊

  • What a cache does
  • when you should use caching
  • how to cache (front-end? Backend?)
  • tools (redis, etc)

How did you learn about caching?

I learned about caching by reading about it then using it on the job

Makes sense. It's one of those things that's tough for beginners I think because it doesn't make a ton of sense on small personal projects. Sort of like testing.

You seem to know a lot about it, so if you're able to channel your inner-beginner and reflect on things you wish you knew or were explained better way back when you first learned it and turn that into an article... I think that would make an excellent post!

A little while ago I started a Level Up Your Ruby Skillz series and I just started a post that will make caching the next topic covered 😎
