Everyone can now run JavaScript on Cloudflare with Service Workers

Cloudflare gave Kenton Varda a mission — Make it so developers could run code on Cloudflare's edge.

Kenton Varda, writes on the Cloudflare blog:

Eventually, we settled on what now seems the obvious choice: JavaScript, using the standard Service Workers API, running in a new environment built on V8. Five months ago, we gave you a preview of what we were building, and started the beta.

Today, with thousands of scripts deployed and many billions of requests served, Cloudflare Workers is now ready for everyone.
