The home team talks with Guillermo Rauch, CEO and cofounder of Vercel and cocreator of Next.js, and Sam Lambert, formerly VP of Engineering at Github and now CEO of PlanetScale. They cover how Vercel and PlanetScale are making the web more accessible to developers, the future of web development for professional programmers, and why human laziness is the ultimate security threat.

Episode notes:

Vercel is a developer-first, frontend-focused platform. Together with Google and Meta, Vercel built Next.js, an open-source React framework that helps developers build high-performance web experiences with ease.

PlanetScale is a MySQL-compatible serverless database platform that enables infinite SQL horizontal scale.

Tools like Webflow and Squarespace have made web development accessible for casual programmers, but what does this mean for professional developers?

This week’s Lifeboat badge goes to user Michael Thelin for their answer to How can I play a Spotify audio track with Python?.
