Varnish Cache and its usage in the real world!

In the modern era of e-commerce, it is quite obvious that web-shop revenue is strictly bound to its code performance. If you can satisfy customer withing 300ms of total page load time, you’ll get this sale. MorЕ over your web-shop will be more likely to get ranked higher in Google.

During my presentation you will find the best practices in integration of Varnish cache into Magento webshop.
