Fundamentals

Welcome, no-code developers! This article will explore the exciting world of edge computing and its potential benefits for your no-code apps. By leveraging the power of toddle, which incorporates Cloudflare's state-of-the-art technology, you can gain a competitive edge. Let's examine the importance of edge computing for application development and discover how it can drive your applications to the forefront of innovation.

What is Edge Computing?

Before proceeding to the intricate details, it is essential to understand the concept of edge computing. The origins of edge computing can be traced back to content-distributed networks (CDNs) that were initially used to deliver web and video content from edge servers located near users in the late 1990s. Over time, these networks evolved to host applications and components on edge servers, leading to the first commercial edge computing services in the early 2000s. These services hosted applications such as dealer locators, shopping carts, real-time data aggregators, and ad insertion engines.

Edge computing is a distributed computing paradigm that facilitates data processing closer to the data source. Instead of transmitting all data to a centralized data center or cloud, edge computing enables local data processing at the "edge" of the network.

Edge computing is designed to decrease latency, conserve bandwidth, and bolster privacy. Now, let us delve into why it is revolutionizing the landscape for app developers.

Why do App Developers use Edge Computing?

  • Decreased Latency:
  • Bandwidth Conservation:
  • Improved Privacy and Security:
  • Offline Functionality:
  • Scalability:

Cloudflare+toddle: A Winning Combination

Any app built with toddle uses a part of Cloudflare's edge computing platform called Workers. Workers enable developers to write and deploy serverless functions at the edge of the Cloudflare network. This results in faster processing times and reduced latency for end users. Additionally, Cloudflare offers services like Workers KV, a key-value store accessible from Workers functions, and Cloudflare Stream, providing video encoding and streaming services at the edge.

Harness Cloudflare's edge computing technology and create more responsive, efficient, and secure applications. You pave the way for a new era of interconnected experiences.

Adopt Edge

The synergistic partnership between toddle's no-code platform and Cloudflare's edge computing services unlocks many opportunities for no-code developers. By capitalizing on this dynamic duo, developers can craft cutting-edge, high-performance applications that meet and exceed the expectations of today's interconnected world. This collaboration empowers no-code developers to build more responsive, efficient, and secure applications that transform digital experiences for the better.

Bring your visionary idea to life.

Programming is a core skill, like speaking a language. We can’t limit it to a secret code only 26 million people know. toddle is a visual web app builder that rivals custom code and is accessible to everyone.

You don't need to be a developer to build powerful web apps.
