Redis experts have created a day of hands-on, deep technical training geared toward both new and experienced Redis developers. By attending RedisConf18 training day, you will learn how to build robust, feature-rich applications using Redis. Attendees can choose between the following two training tracks:

Introductory Track


This track is for developers who are new or just starting out with Redis. Prior knowledge of Redis is not required.

Advanced Track


This track is intended for developers familiar with Redis who have already built at least one application using Redis. We recommend this track to developers who have attended either a previous RedisConf training day or a RedisLabs RED Workshop event.

  • How to connect to a Redis database
  • How to use basic Redis data structures (String, Sets, Hashes, etc.)
  • Common Redis use cases
  • Advanced Redis data structures (HyperLoglog, Bitfields)
  • The Redis Pub/Sub system
  • Working with the new RediSearch and ReJSON modules

This track will consist of a mix of classroom lecture presentations and hands-on coding labs. Python and Java will be the primary language used to present sample code. Hands-on programming exercises will use Python.


This track will consist of classroom lecture presentations and hands-on coding labs. Python will be the language used for the coding labs.


There will be two lecture-style presentations and one hands-on programming exercise in the morning. Topics include:

  • Overview of Redis and Redis Enterprise for developers new to Redis
  • How Redis makes it easy to implement solutions for common application features like caching, first data ingestion, job queue management, and geospatial indexing of data
  • Introduction to the Redis data model and all of the data structures currently supported by Redis
  • Hands-on programming exercise: Attendees will work through a series of online notebooks demonstrating the API used with the String, List, Hash, Set and Sorted Set data structures

The morning session of this track will cover:

  • Currently supported Redis data structures (String, List, Hash, Set, and Sorted Set)
  • Deep dive into Bitfield, HyperLogLog, and the GeoSpatial index types
  • Review of the Redis concurrency module and the transaction API
  • In-depth exploration of the Redis PubSub system
  • Hands-on coding lab: Attendees will work through exercises utilizing the APIs introduced earlier in the morning

This track will build on the morning data structures session to introduce attendees to important concepts. Topics in this session include:

  • Transactions and concurrency control and introduction to the Redis transactions API
  • Introduction to the Redis Modules system as part of the Redis 4.0 release, including the functionality and API of the ReJSON, RediSearch, Redis-ML, and Redis Graph modules
  • Hands-on programming exercise: Attendees will use online notebooks to explore the transactions API and ReJSON module API

The afternoon session of this track will cover:

  • An in-depth look at the API and functionality of the following three modules:
    • ReJSON
    • RediSearch - with information on the RediSearch extension mechanism to build custom query expanders and document scoring functions
    • Redis-ML
  • Hands-on coding lab: Attendees will have free time to explore the API for any or all of the presented modules
