Serverless Revolution with Tyler McMullen


Serverless has grown in popularity over the last five years, and the space of applications that can be built entirely with serverless has increased dramatically. This is due to two factors: the growing array of serverless tools (such as edge-located key value stores) and the rising number of companies with serverless offerings. One of those companies is Fastly, which originally gained adoption for its CDN solution. Tyler McMullen is the CTO of Fastly and he joins the show to talk through how Fastly looks at edge computing today. This is Tyler’s third appearance on the show.
