"Web beyond the edge" by Igor Minar & Nevi Shah at #RemixConf 2023 💿
Edge computing is increasingly being adopted by web developers these days to improve UX and decrease latency of their applications. Cloudflare Workers, Deno Deploy, Netlify Edge Functions, and Vercel Edge Functions, all have made edge computing available to developers of full stack applications. With this adoption new architectural patterns and anti-patterns for building web applications have emerged. In this talk we’ll cover how developers can utilize edge computing to build full-stack applications and what are the strengths and weaknesses of this approach. We’ll also look into the future — beyond the edge, and explore how thinking of the network as the computer will fundamentally change the architecture of web applications in order to make building planet-scale applications accessible to everyone.
