Cloudflare Developer Fund

Cloudflare and world class investment firms invest $100 Million to deliver powerful tools for the Internet. The Cloudflare Developer Fund is looking for companies that are building apps on Cloudflare’s platform.

Cloudflare Workers

Extend Cloudflare by Writing Code

Cloudflare Workers let developers run JavaScript Service Workers in Cloudflare's 118 data centers around the world. Using a Service Worker, developers can modify a site's HTTP requests and responses, make parallel requests, or generate responses from the edge. Since Cloudflare Workers run in Cloudflare’s data centers, not in the user’s browser, they can include sensitive business logic and will work with any browser or API client.

  • Use custom logic to decide which requests are cacheable and improve cache hit rate.
  • Expand HTML templates to fetch only dynamic content from the origin.
  • Dynamically respond to requests without contacting the origin server.
  • Generate parallel requests to different services and combine the responses.
