Redis: persistent collections as a service (and for fun)
A quick introduction to Redis, and why I really like it

I recently had to learn about Redis for work, and was very pleased at how well designed it is, and how much fun it is to use. Several times I went to look for a piece of functionality, and there it was, doing exactly what I wanted. I am especially fond of BRPOPLPUSH.
I propose to give a brief introduction to what Redis is and does, an overview of the redis-py client and fakeredis for unit testing, and if there's time, some discussion of asyncio programming using aioredis.
At the end, I hope that the audience will know a bit about a genuinely useful tool that can be used as a datestore, and also for cross-communication between many programming languages. And maybe they'll share some of my enthusiasm.
