Falling off the Edge: Practical Uses for Edge Computing

Unlock the full potential of edge computing with this session. We'll dive deep into what edge computing is, how it works, and how it can enhance the software you build.


Learn about new languages and frameworks like Deno and Fresh that can take advantage of edge computing. See how easy it is to deploy to the edge and understand what it means to deploy your code as close as possible to your users and the benefits it brings.

The session will give you real-world examples and uses cases of edge computing so you can apply it to your work. We'll also cover the limitations of the edge and when it may not be the best fit for your project.

You will walk away from this session with the knowledge and skills to get the most out of edge computing.
