Sam Lambert is originally from the UK, and has lived quite a few places during his life. He went to school in India, but now resides in San Francisco. He finds software to be a creative, playful process, and sees people trying to build that away from the process. He feels very lucky to building something that provides fruit and solves problems. Outside of tech, he is married with a 4 year old, and is into cooking and art. I asked about NFT’s, given his tech background, but he’s not super into that form of art at this time.
Sam spent time working at Github as a VP of Engineering, specifically focusing on infrastructure. He and his team came across Vitess, the backend that ran YouTube, and he took this amazing framework into his current venture to remix their approach of design and scalability.
This is the creation story of PlanetScale.
