You can find more information on the speaker's site:

Redis can seem like an odd beast: though it’s a “data store”, it’s very different from relational databases, or document databases, or other sorts of system you might be familiar with. Its unusual properties make it an astonishingly good fit for some use cases, but correspondingly, it can be difficult to see how to make the most of what it offers, especially once you move beyond the commonplace applications of job queues, or key/value caches.

Come to this talk if you’re involved in designing and building real systems, and you’d like some ideas for where Redis’s approach can help. You’ll get an overview of Redis’s features, and learn how to apply those features to a wide variety of situations. You’ll also learn how to consider your application’s requirements when choosing from Redis’s powerful set of options for replication and persistent storage.
