Leaning Center - What is Function-as-a-Service (FaaS)?

FaaS is a serverless backend service allowing developers to write modular pieces of code on the fly that can be executed in response to certain events. It’s a serverless way to execute modular pieces of code on the edge. FaaS lets developers write and update a piece of code on the fly, which can then be executed in response to an event, such as a user clicking on an element in a web application. This makes it easy to scale code and is a cost-efficient way to implement microservices. Learn more in the Cloudflare Learning Center.
