About this talk

Edge computing continues to make headlines as leading enterprises, including Amazon and Walmart, announce differentiation strategies centered around this emerging compute paradigm. Centralized cloud infrastructure, as we know it today, isn’t equipped to handle the amount of data being generated by an explosion of connected devices. At the same time, user expectations around speed, availability, security, privacy, personalization and more are driving application developers to seek new ways to differentiate themselves in crowded markets. Many software architects are turning to edge computing as a path to innovation. Join Wes Reisz (VP of Technology at Section and Co-host of the InfoQ Podcast) as he demonstrates why now is the time to adopt an effective edge strategy and what it means to architect, build and deploy edge-aware distributed systems. Key Takeaways: - Understand the current state of edge computing and common use cases driving adoption, including real-world stories of how organizations are leveraging application architecture as a competitive advantage. - Gain tactical insights on how to evaluate your current application architecture to identify opportunities and begin implementing an effective edge strategy today. - Learn how to speed up development cycles, eliminate operational overhead, and improve developer experience using automation techniques such as GitOps at the edge.
