Everything you should know about Edge Compute

Edge compute is a new addition to an already complex landscape of compute options: client-side rendering, server-side rendering, static site generation, and more.

Each comes with its own challenges and opportunities. In this talk, we'll look at the existing compute continuum and see where edge fits in. Then we'll take a deeper dive over the edge and cover its unique qualities and limitations. Finally, we'll break down example applications and see where each layer of compute provides its greatest value.

By the end of this talk, you should have a better understanding of the various layers of compute, the specifics of edge compute, and how it all works together to build amazing products at scale.
