DOP 210: Mastering Database Scalability With PlanetScale

Posted on Wednesday, May 10, 2023

Show Notes

#210: If you’re feeling frustrated and overwhelmed due to your current database deployment and management process not working as expected, then you are not alone! Think about how many times you’ve needed to maintain the schema of your database and then you give up because it’s either going to break things or it’s going to take too long for a migration to happen.

In this episode, we speak with Sam Lambert, CEO of PlanetScale, about how running your own database should be considered a thing of the past and that you really shouldn’t be scared to make changes to your database schema when it’s as simple as doing a rewind.
