Join us for three serverless talks at Cloudflare’s headquarters. This event is in partnership with Real World Serverless - San Francisco
Talk 1: Inspiring with Content: How to Grow Developer Platforms at Scale
Serverless platforms like Cloudflare Workers provide benefits like scalability, high performance, and lower costs. However, when talking to developers, one of the most common reactions is, “this sounds interesting, but what do I build with it?”
In this talk, we’ll cover how at Cloudflare we’ve been able to answer this question at scale with Workers Sites. We’ll go over why this product exists and how the implementation leads to some unintended discoveries.
Victoria Bernard is a full-stack, product-minded engineer focused on Cloudflare Workers Developer Experience. An engineer who started a career working at large firms in hardware sales and moved throughout Cloudflare from support to product and to development. Passionate about building products that make developer lives easier and more productive.
Talk 2: Streamlining API-based Integrations: How Castle Offers Codeless SaaS Security via Cloudflare Apps with Workers
For many companies, deploying new solutions takes more time than they have. Reducing time to deployment was a priority so Castle turned to Cloudflare Workers.
In this talk, we’ll discuss how Castle was able to build a codeless integration for their account security and recovery product using Apps with Workers. We’ll also dive into the important considerations that we needed to consider for deploying online account security and what we learned along the way.
Chris Concannon is a Solutions Engineer at Castle. His first engineering career was spent in clinical research for cardiac pacing and mapping technologies. He finds software engineering and tech companies more exciting. He enjoys working closely with product, sales, and customers.
Talk 3: Extending a Serverless Platform: How to Fake a File System…and Get Away With It
When building a platform for developers, you can’t anticipate every use case. So, how do you build new functionality into a platform in a sustainable way, and inspire others to do the same?
Let’s talk about how we took a globally distributed serverless platform (Cloudflare Workers) and key-value store (Workers KV) intended to store short-lived data and turned them into a way to easily deploy static websites. It wasn’t a straightforward journey, but join as we overcome roadblocks and learn a few lessons along the way.
Ashley Lewis headed the development of the features that became Workers Sites. She’s process and collaboration oriented and focused on user experience first at every level of the stack. Ashley proudly tops the leaderboard for most LOC deleted.
