The best place to learn about the next generation of Internet security and performance.

The fastest way to get up to speed

This invitation-only event will feature lively talks and interviews with Cloudflare’s executive team, sneak peeks at the future of Internet technology, and parallel tracks of hands-on instruction and best practices for securing and accelerating your websites, applications, and APIs.

Get answers to questions like:

  • How can I secure my site without sacrificing performance?
  • What are the latest trends in malicious attacks — and how should I prepare?
  • What site optimizations am I leaving on the table?

Serverless

Cloudflare’s bleeding-edge serverless platform — Cloudflare Workers — allows you to write and deploy code without the hassle of worrying about underlying infrastructure. Better yet: Workers puts your code at Cloudflare’s network edge, as close to your users as possible.

Learn how to leverage Workers for cost savings, performance acceleration, and flexibility you can’t get anywhere else.

Only at Cloudflare // Connect.

Standards

The Internet is built on standards, but many of its stakeholders seem to have forgotten that. Cloudflare has long been a leader in advancing the latest, making it easy to deploy key security-enhancing protocols like DNSSEC.

At Cloudflare // Connect, you’ll hear about recently-released and forthcoming standards — and how to plan for their impact and opportunity for your business.

Security

From Bot Management to WAF Rules and DDoS Mitigation — security is a pillar of Cloudflare’s platform.

Attend Cloudflare // Connect, and familiarize yourself with the tools you need to secure your site (or any Internet-connected device) from the threats of malware, bot attacks, content scraping, and other malicious activity prevalent on the web.

Performance

Cloudflare operates the world’s fastest DNS service and is the go-to content delivery network for some of the world’s biggest brands. And that’s just the start.

At Cloudflare // Connect you’ll learn everything you need to ensure your site renders as fast and efficiently as possible, from whatever device a visitor is surfing from.

Reliability

Ensuring the availability of your Internet properties is just as important as protecting them from malicious requests. Leveraging Cloudflare’s massive edge network means that instead of relying on only a handful of servers, you now have thousands of machines around the world making sure that visitors can reach your content.

Multicloud

Many companies rely on multiple cloud services for their technology stack. Cloudflare is an independent third party in your multi-cloud strategy — capable of centralizing your security and operational needs into a single dashboard.

Learn how to leverage Cloudflare to simplify your multicloud strategy at Cloudflare // Connect.
