"Pick your tools, know them, nurture them, but always be open to discovering and learning new tools, and remaking your workflow."
At Varnish Software we like to share knowledge, so through this post we’ll give you an inside look into the tools and workflow used for the VAC front-end development. Building a tool like the VAC is both a challenge and a fulfilment. From the first steps of architectural decision making, to a product ready for release, using the right tools, in coalition with a coherent workflow, mean the probability of project success is much higher.
One of the two biggest changes in Varnish 4.0 is how the threads work. Varnish uses threads for doing all the heavy lifting and it seems to be working out quite well. In Varnish 3.0 one thread would service each client, doing whatever that client wanted it to do. Within reason, obviously. These are very decent threads.
The thread would deliver from cache, fetch content from the backend, pipe, etc.
