Supercharging Content Delivery with Varnish

You have amazing content and you want to get it to your users as fast as possible. Today, milliseconds matter and slow websites will never keep up. You can use a CDN but they're expensive, make you dependent on a third party to deliver your content, and can be inflexible. Enter Varnish, a powerful, open-source caching reverse proxy that lives in your network and lets you take control of how your content is managed and delivered. We’ll discuss how to install and configure Varnish in front of a typical web application, how to handle sessions and security, and how you can customize Varnish to your needs. This session will give you the tools to create a better experience for your users while streamlining your content pipeline.
