Last two decades have seen tremendous growth in Web based applications. This growth combined with advancement in web technologies has fundamentally transformed user’s expectations of services and products provided by commercial entities. Today’s customer is flooded with choices quite literally at their fingertips. It’s no surprise then that user experience in web applications is a key parameter that drive the technology initiatives in any company. One of the key components of user experience is performance of the system. As page load time goes from one second to 10 seconds, the probability of a mobile site visitor bouncing increases 123%.[1]. Businesses have only few seconds to engage the customer online or they run the risk of losing the business. Performance Engineering of any web applications is therefore critical to the success of any business in today’s digitized world. Within landscape of performance engineering, caching holds a prominent, permanent and a respectable position. Any web application aimed at improving the user experience implements caching in some shape or form. Caching improves responsiveness of any website and thereby improves the user experience. This paper looks at the basics of caching and how caching can be implemented in today’s technological landscape.
