    Gee nothing would put me off Redis as a newbie like being told to read six books, most of which are old and not about Redis specifically.

    The whole attraction of Redis, IMO, is it’s a grab-bag of basic functions and you assemble your stuff with it, while trying to keep things as simple as possible. You don’t need a book, the docs are plenty. If you’re trying to use it as a microservice backend or whatever, then, uh, are you sure you can’t use a normal database (and are you sure you want microservices)?

    I’d be steering well clear of any association with NoSQL, too, if I was their marketing team (who presumably wrote this) - no-one’s hyping Mongo, Cassandra, HBase etc anymore…

      Also it’s a very bad idea to also teach other technologies in your learning materials.

      When I saw this article, at first I thought it was a joke, but now I think something is borked with my browser, because it looks like this. I don’t think that is how they intended the fonts to come out and it looks fine on my phone too. Does anyone know how to debug font stuff on Firefox?

        This might sometimes happen because of bad font fallbacks by the website and for some reason, the intended web-font could not be loaded(server down/some extension blocking it etc). But could be entirely something else in your case, let us know!

          “Inspect element” the text. In the CSS panel, if you hover over the font-family definition it will show you the computed value. From there you should be able to find which font is being used and why.
