Recently, we had the opportunity to interview Guillermo Rauch, the Founder & CEO of Vercel, and the mind behind Next.js. In the interview, we got to dig into why he created Next.js, along with Vercel, so that the developer experience and their execution could efficient as possible. Enjoy.
Bonus: Guillermo Rauch, Vercel & Next.js — codestory.co
Having been a JS person, he saw an opportunity to build out the frontend layer of the web. To put that in context, think about what Stripe, Twilio, etc. have done for the industry with their foundational, developer first API’s. He decided to create a framework that had no opinion about how you got your data. Along side of this, he created the optimal ecosystem for developers to build very fast – specifically, to develop, preview, and ship.
