Working with SharePoint 2013 Distributed Cache Service (DCS)

As part of the latest course, i wanted to show how to get in and see what was in the cache of SharePoint.  I also wanted to add my own items via web parts.  Since the DCS is really AppFabric, and I have worked with it before, I didn't see it being a tough set of labs to put together.  However, I found that all the SPDistributedCache classes are marked as "internal".   This leave the regular .NET API to make calls into the service layers.   I found a great little set of code written by Stephane Eyskens (@stephaneeyskens) here:

That is one of the better pieces of sleuthing I have seen in a while!
