This session will explore the layers and components of the powerful cache system in Drupal 8. Topics will include:

  • Overview of the Cache API.
  • How to configure your local setup to get all caching out of the way for development.
  • How to build render arrays in your custom modules that are properly cache aware:
    • Accounting for cache metadata
    • Implementing your own cache tags
  • Preventing Drupal from caching a particular route.
  • Bonus Topics as time allows:
    • Reverse proxy (Varnish) integration.
