Application developers are key to the success of an edge compute strategy. They are the backbone for any digital ecosystem and their requirements drive the platform architecture. Edge computing is no different. In this talk, we will focus on some key requirements, challenges and possible solutions for a developer centric architecture for multi-access edge computing including abstraction of the service provider’s network complexity, low footprint cloud native builder models, micro-services, hardware abstractions, intelligence layers and massive monitoring of application instances.
