Our colleague Daniel Haro Contreras wanted to share with the team a seminar on Edge Computing, a new backend paradigm increasingly on the rise.
Edge Computing moves the low latency of CDNs (for static content) to the delivery of dynamic content, with servers close to the user.
During the seminar, we talked about how this technology has been developed, differentiating it from the Serverless Computing offered by AWS Lambda or Google Cloud Functions.
Then the strengths and weaknesses of this approach were discussed, as well as solutions that can avoid latency due to the location of the database.
Finally, a small A/B test was implemented in Cloudflare Workers as an example, including the use of the wrangler tool for debugging and the configuration of a custom domain.
