The results for our Member Search with Redis challenge are in and mbleigh took home the top spot. The requirements of the challenge were fairly simple: Use Redis to write a simple search interface with ruby that searches the Redis data store by keyword and returns matching members. Users can click on the returned records to view the actual member’s profile page on CloudSpokes.
The app is running on Heroku so you can test it for yourself or you can fork the GitHub repo.
We are really excited about Redis and will be running more challenges with it in the near future. We plan on using Redis for the new CloudSpokes site and the results of these challenges will be rolled into the new site's code.
Congrats to mbleigh for his 6th of 7 wins!
