- Cloudflare Workers Workshop: Developer Experience with Serverless
To save time at check-in, please register on Eventbrite (https://www.eventbrite.com/e/cloudflare-workers-workshop-developer-experience-with-serverless-tickets-58797889069?aff=meetup) Jonathan Spies is leading an internal workshop for other Cloudflare engineers, but he wanted to include the SF community as well. Please feel free to join the group at Cloudflare! Getting started with Cloudflare Workers at cloudflare.com is incredibly easy. But how do we build production ready apps with all the components of a mature development process? Join us as we walk through how the Access team at Cloudflare organizes a project, does unit testing, sets up stages and environments, deploys, logs, monitors, instruments and integrates to continuous integration/deployment! Bring your computers for the workshop portion (optional) Speaker Bio: Jonathan Spies is the Engineering Manager for the Cloudflare Access and Tunnels teams, which allows Cloudflare customers to serve and secure their services at the edge. Prior to Cloudflare, Jonathan co-founded and served as Architect and CTO at Bypass Mobile, a payment and point of sale system for enterprise users. He was an early adopter of the Serverless Framework, building huge portions of Bypass’ cloud on serverless technologies.

- Fight for the Edge: Urgent Knowledge About the Next Frontier in Web Performance
To save time at check-in, please register on Eventbrite (https://fightfortheedge.eventbrite.com) Talk 1: What You Need to Know About the Next Frontier in Web Performance As computers and networks become faster, one speed is becoming more and more relevant: the speed of light. To build fast apps and sites we must begin to shrink the distance between the server and the consumer. CDNs did this for static files, but as experiences become more and more interactive, it’s time to move the origin as well. Is your site fast? How about in Australia? The next wave in serverless computation is moving your computation out from a single region or availability zone into a distributed system around the world. Join us as we explore what the stack of the future will look like. About the speaker: Zack Bloom (https://twitter.com/zackbloom?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor) is the Engineering Manager for the Apps and Workers teams which together form the Cloudflare Platform. He was the co-founder of Eager, which was acquired by Cloudflare in 2016 to create Cloudflare Apps (https://www.cloudflare.com/apps/). Zack is also the creator of open-source projects which have earned over forty-thousand stars on Github. Talk 2: GraphQL at the Edge GraphQL is an API technology that allows clients to ask for the exact data they need, without the server sending extraneous results or having to perform extra roundtrips to fetch related objects. A GraphQL server often acts as a reusable way of exposing microservices, in effect allowing frontend teams to create Backends For Frontends on the fly. In this talk, I will introduce GraphQL, discuss why it is such a great match for execution at the edge, and talk about our efforts to define standards and build tooling to address common development and deployment concerns like schema stitching, caching and tracing. About the speaker: Martijn Walraven (https://twitter.com/martijnwalraven?lang=en) is a product manager at Apollo, focusing on building production-grade GraphQL tools and services. Previously, he was part of the open source team, where among other things he started the Apollo iOS and Apollo codegen projects.

- The Rise of Edge Compute
The Rise of Edge Compute Save time at check-in by registering on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-rise-of-edge-compute-tickets-42724519187 Every day, an average of 392K people around the world gain access to the Internet for the first time. In an ever more global world, it’s no longer reasonable to think in terms of regions, availability zones, or individual data centers. It’s necessary to build systems which move computation and data close to users, wherever they find themselves in the world. We call this technology Edge Compute, and it’s the future of how complex software systems will be designed and built. Join Zack Bloom, Engineering Manager for the Cloudflare Platform teams, and Kenton Varda, Chief Architect for Cloudflare Workers, as they lay out our vision for the future of the Internet as a platform, and provide a detailed look at the architecture of Cloudflare Workers for the very first time.

- SE Tech Exchange
• What we'll do SEs from Elastic, Cloudflare, and ThousandEyes will present 3 lightning talks describing the fundamental technical hurdles their solutions face - e.g. why is it difficult to analyze a million log lines a minute, why is it easy to launch a DDoS attack and hard to stop, and why is it so hard to measure the health of a global network? The presentations will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A. This is an opportunity for engineers who work on the internet to learn more about areas outside of their expertise. This is a rare chance to hear from experts in the field. Together we will: Cross-pollinate ideas Meet with other SEs Have fun The event will take place at Cloudflare’s offices at 101 Townsend St., San Francisco, CA. Food and drinks will be provided.
