“One of the key takeaways today is realising how much Fastly has to offer.” Agathe Savard - Director of Security, Deputy (Fastly Forward ‘22)
We had a blast last year and 2023 will be even better!
We were privileged to receive invaluable feedback from our customers and partners who joined Fastly Forward last year. One common theme among attendees was the desire for enhanced access to hands-on exercises and knowledge to build real-world skills using Fastly.
So, this year, we’re taking Fastly Forward to the next level with the most practical tech day possible. Our focus is on equipping our community with tangible skills you can use immediately using Fastly’s Edge Cloud platform. We’re dedicated to empowering your success with the knowledge and resources you need to deliver and secure extraordinary digital experiences for your users.
