This is natural because you need to know about Data Structures and Algorithms to understand a Database.<br/><br/>Redis can be seen as a <b>Data Structures Server</b>, a very simple interface to a extremly fast and efficient <h2><a name="Dude where is my SELECT statement?">Dude where is my SELECT statement?</a></h2><h2><a name="LISTs">LISTs</a></h2>In SQL there is no such thing as a &quot;natural&quot; order, a SELECT statement without a ORDER BY clause will return data in a undefined order.
