Cloudflare runs 10% of the Internet, boosting the performance and security of millions of websites. Many of you probably already use Cloudflare on your sites. We’re not talking about using Cloudflare though, we’re talking about building on top of it.
As a developer, you can build apps which can be installed by the the millions of sites which rely on Cloudflare. You can even sell your apps; they can make you money every month. Your users can login or register to your service inside your app, get a real-time preview of your tool live on their site, and start paying you monthly all from within Cloudflare Apps. They can go from never having heard of you or your service to having it installed on their site, and paying you, in seconds.
In this workshop, you will learn how to build a basic Cloudflare App, add it to the marketplace, and set your app up for success.
