Build your own redis (redis from scratch)

A new book that teaches you how to create redis from scratch

Needless to say, the Redis project is quite a success. It’s an important component in backend applications.

Redis could be considered one of the building blocks of modern computing. There are not many projects that fit the such role and stood the test of time. Here are some examples that meet my criteria of the “building block”: NGINX, SQLite, PostgreSQL, Kafka, Linux kernel, etc.

Most of us are not working on projects of such a level, but it is still worthwhile to learn from those projects. It takes higher skill and deeper knowledge to build such projects, thus learning from those projects could be a path to the next level as a software developer. The book is the result of my own learning.
