In this short episode, I show you how you can cache database queries for a certain period of time. This is really nice when you have data you know won’t change during x period of time, because once it’s in cache, Laravel knows to automatically skip the database query and immediately deliver the requested content from RAM. Super fast, super easy.
Here’s the complete project throughout all episodes: https://gitlab.com/Christf24/RedisCast/tree/master/
Next episode will go over tagging with Redis (for blog posts, movie genres, or whatever else).
