Episode 121 - Edge Computing with Jaxon Repp

 

Download

What is "The Edge"?  The answer is that it means different things to different people, but it always involves lifting logic, data, and processing load off of your backend servers and onto other machines.  Sometimes those machines are spread out over many small datacenters, or sometimes they are in the hands of your customers.  In all cases, computing on the edge is a different paradigm that requires new ways of thinking about coding.  We're super lucky to have Jaxon on the show to share his experiences with edge computing and dive into this topic!!
