All this year, Varnish Software has been celebrating the ten-year anniversary of Varnish Cache. One of the best traits of Varnish Cache is its flexibility - and throughout its decade of existence, we have been consistently surprised by the creative ways our users have deployed Varnish. To capture and share with the entire community some of these use cases, we launched the Varnish Awards. We invited Varnish users to submit their stories in two categories, innovation and value, and then empaneled a group of judges to choose the best of the best. The value category award winner will be announced shortly - stay tuned. The winners in each category will share their stories on September 22 at the Varnish Summit in Los Angeles.
Since the birth of Varnish Cache - ten years ago! - Varnish fans and aficionados throughout the world have been using Varnish Cache to innovate and create the tools and functionality they need. Flexibility is what Varnish Cache has always been about. We’ve always loved seeing users’ creations and results, and will now take that admiration a step further.
It’s hard to believe, but Varnish Cache is 10! On February 22, we’re singing happy birthday to ourselves (now that the famous tune has been declared public domain and fair game, which is a little bit like open source!).
