    One thought on “The Little Redis Book”

    1. Great intro book. It briefly covers the essential parts of Redis, starting with explaining the data structures and continuing with some important commands and administration information. I liked that it stated clearly which commands are great debug tools but shouldn't be run on production instances.

    2. The little Redis book does a great job in covering most of the essential concepts of Redis in a lucid way. After covering the book, you can get a good understanding of Redis and learn many techniques to make the best use of Redis. You will learn about good patterns and anti-patterns related to using Redis.To keep the content small, the author has left many things out which is good. But he should have specified the things not covered in the book. If a person only reads this book on Redis, then he [...]

    3. A tiny ebook for having an overview of the key elements in redis. Since redis is a quite lightweight database with clear API, the next step should be reading the official document.

    4. Very simple, easy to go book, less than 50(total 31) pages.Introduction : is very neat and clean talks about installing Redis on your system(on window as well), also talks about drivers, if you want to use any language with Redis (PHP, Ruby etc).Chapter 1: Author says it's the building block to understand the Redis.Chapter 2: Talks about Redis Data Structures, Strings, Hashes(my fav), Lists(poorly described), Sets(poorly described) and Sorted Set.Chapter 3: Introduces some Computer Science behin [...]

    5. The little Redis book is "too little". The book jumps right into Redis' technicalities rather than explaining why Redis is worth learning. In what cases it makes sense to Redis? If you have been exposed to NoSQL databases and want a very quick overview it is good, otherwise it isn't very helpful.

    6. A very much to-the-point book. Though it does not cover some topics in detail and of course it can't in this short number of pages. But it's good head start to Redis.

    7. Nice little overview of how redis works and what scenarios it's good for. Good to know for the next projects.
