Join us for 2 serverless talks and a workshop in at Cloudflare’s London office. We’re getting ready for ServerlessDays London and would love to meet you and prepare with you in advance of the conference.

Talk 1: Test-Driven AppSync Development

AWS AppSync takes some of the pain away for learning GraphQL. However learning curve on GraphQL is quite high, and AppSync also has its own nuances. In this talk I’ll go through my learnings and introduce tools for faster AppSync development workflow using Serverless Framework. Livecoding promised!

Speaker Bio: Arto Liukkonen is a Senior Developer at Nordcloud. Mainly JavaScript on both back- and front-end. Also willing to touch WordPress & PHP. Oh and serverless is also cool!

Talk 2: Optimizing your website on the fly

Web performance is not just about moving static files closer to visitors, it’s also about ensuring that every page renders as fast and efficiently as possible from whatever device a visitor is surfing from. Cloudflare users can choose any combination of these web content optimization features that take performance to the next level.

Speaker Bio: Sven Sauleau is a French software engineer who is fascinated by JavaScript engines and apparently trains. He is also an OSS enthusiast; working on JavaScript, Babel, Webpack, WebAssembly and some bits of Rust. Sven works as a Systems Engineer at Cloudflare.

Workshop: Let’s Build a Worker with workers.dev

Bring your laptop and follow along as we build a Workers function that will control a robot with Workers.dev!

Speaker bio: Kas Perch (they/their/them) is a Developer Advocate at Cloudflare by day, and a Twitch Code/Hardware streamer, IoT author, and gamer by night. They love talking about serverless architecture, Web Assembly, IoT and its implications, and a myriad of other topics. They’ll also totally show you a million pics of their 2 cats if you let them.
