Services need to talk to each other safely without inconveniencing users. Let’s pretend I own a service with users and I want to grant other services access to my service on behalf of my users.
Today we are launching the second iteration of the Cloudflare App Developer Fund. This is an investment fund started in partnership with Venrock, Pelion Venture Partners, and New Enterprise Associates.
Since its inception, Cloudflare Apps has made it possible for website owners to install a tool or a service directly onto a domain they have that lives on the Cloudflare network.
Starting today we are announcing the availability of two key pilot programs: Cloudflare Apps with Workers and Cloudflare Workers Service Providers. Over the course of past few months we've seen an accelerating interest in Workers.
At the end of March, Kenton Varda, tech lead and architect for Cloudflare Workers, traveled to London and led a talk about the Rise of Edge Compute where he laid out our vision for the future of the Internet as a platform.
