#231: We never thought that exposing our databases to the public internet was a good thing. However, when we started creating middleware API services that sat in front of those databases, we probably ended up doing almost the exact same type work that we did when we created the database schemas themselves. Somehow or another, we thought this was good, but in reality, it was not the right solution.
In this episode, we speak with Tanmai Gopal, CEO and co-founder at Hasura, about how modern web APIs are developed and the role of modern databases in making development more efficient and scalable.
