Streamlining Cloud Development with Deno

In today's cloud computing landscape, the gap between efficient local development and seamless global deployment frequently presents challenges. The creation of cloud software often demands extensive integration and meticulous plumbing. Thanks to Deno and its suite of meticulously crafted primitives, we can notably bridge this divide. This talk will delve into:

  • Deno Runtime: The next-generation JavaScript runtime.
  • Deno KV: A datastore with global reach, anchored by ACID transactions and powered by FoundationDB.
  • Deno Queues: A resilient system for background task processing, guaranteeing at-least-once message delivery.
  • NPM in Deno: Merging Deno with the vast node ecosystem, paving the way for increased adaptability.
  • Fresh web framework: Spotlighting rapid page loads and accelerated edge deployments.

Join us for lively (and risky!) real-time demos demonstrating the speed at which one can build a comprehensive cloud application from scratch.
