How Do You Distribute Your Database Over Hundreds of Edge Locations?

Erwin van der Koogh

Writing a database is hard enough as is. Writing a database that seamlessly replicates writes to multiple continents is extremely hard. But AWS, Azure and smaller players like FaunaDB have great solutions in this space.

But what if you want to distribute your database over a few hundred locations instead of a few regions? In this talk we will be explaining a new model that Cloudflare has developed to solve this challenge, and where it could go next.

Matthew Mueller, Product Manager, Prisma Client

Connecting your SQL or MongoDB Database to Cloudflare Workers with Prisma

Croquet: Edge computing for Frontend (!) Developers

Vanessa Freudenberg

Croquet lets you build real-time multi-user web apps without any server or networking code. Vanessa, Co-Founder and Chief Architect of Croquet will demonstrate how you can build such an app with just a little bit of client-side JavaScript running in your web browser. Meanwhile behind the scenes, Croquet’s global servers are keeping your browser sessions in sync, giving you the low latency of edge computing without you having to deploy anything.

Croquet is exploring moving its servers to a serverless deployment, and Vanessa will describe why Cloudflare’s Workers and Durable Objects are uniquely suitable for that.

Building Apps with Cloudflare Workers & Hasura

Vishwa Mehta

In this talk, I will set the primer for building Serverless apps using Cloudflare Workers and how Hasura fits into the architecture. We will then understand the anatomy of a basic app with JWT auth and RBAC implemented. The auth service here, is a serverless function that is deployed using Workers and stitched into the GraphQL API using Hasura Actions. Additionally, we leverage the built-in authorization engine of Hasura to implement role-based access control for our users to access data from the database.

Jamstack Gives You Wings

Obinna Ekwuno

All serverless platforms are an extension of frontend developer’s superpowers, even better serverless allows for that blurry line in the middleware about who owns what between the backend and the frontend teams to be a bit clearer. It answers the age-long question of “Who owns the proxy server”. It is I, it says!

But what happens to the serverless code when it has left our computer, where does it go? Does it make new friends where it goes? It is able to adapt and grow as we scale?? Let’s chat about this. In this talk, we will have a quick chat about pushing the boundaries of serverless.
