#53 Elige tu propia aventura con Guillermo Rauch (Founder Vercel)

Elige Tu Propia Aventura

@rauchg Iba al colegio primario y a la tarde hacía cursos de Linux. Me puse a trabajar con gente de todo el mundo. Mi primer cliente fue de Filipinas que me dio U$10~U$15 para arreglar algo con CSS. Fui al Carlos Pellegrini. Mi familia se mudó de Lanús a CABA para que me sea más fácil ir al colegio. Primer año me fue bien, pero después se me hacía más difícil porque trabajaba mucho para el exterior. Me llegaban oportunidades de negocios todo el tiempo. Ya en quinto años era cuando menos iba al colegio. Me acuerdo cuando una vez me llamaron de Facebook cuando recién arrancaba. Siempre cuento la anécdota de que podría haber entrado a Facebook en el primer año porque los flacos estaban muy interesados en Javascript. Siempre me interesó la energía nuclear. Todo lo que tiene que ver con la fisión nuclear es lo veo como un futuro muy obvio. Hoy en día Alemania está desarmando todas las plantas nucleares pero está claro que es la energía más limpia, con el mejor ROI. Sobre estudiar o no mi recomendación es que cada persona tiene que hacer el camino más auténtico de acuerdo a su personalidad, pasión e historia. Como primera pregunta en una entrevista a veces me gusta preguntar cuál es una idea que tenés que creés que es controversial o que va en contra de la marea. Siempre hay algo que puede ser más rápido, más novedoso, más eficiente, más fácil de enseñar, de adoptar, y siempre uno va probando cosas. Es la curiosidad de cómo deberían hacerse las cosas a futuro. Hoy en día lo ves en gente como Elon Musk. @Vercel como cliente tiene a una persona bastante sofisticada: el desarrollador. Antes, en los 90s/2000 hacer un deployment era muy difícil. Pasaban semanas para estar online. Mi idea es cómo con tres clics podemos hacer que un developer haga un deployment global. El mercado principal de cualquier compañía de tecnología que le vende a «enterprises» siempre va a ser EEUU; el segundo Europa y el tercero Japón o alguna otra parte de Asia. Siempre vas a necesitar un componente muy grande de inversión en EEUU. Me gusta muchísimo el tema crypto. Uno de los grandes objetivos de Vercel es descentralizar la web: queremos que la web sea rápida en todos lados. En 2016 me di cuenta de lo difícil que era hacer el deployment de una página web. Mi ambición era muy sencilla: crear un directorio, ejecutar un comando y recibir una URL de forma instantánea con el contenido de mi sitio web. El salto cuántico de @vercel fue en octubre de 2016. Nos dimos cuenta de que no era suficiente resolver el problema del deployment, sino que nos faltaba la herramienta de desarrollo. Ahí fue que decidimos crear @nextjs @rauchg dándole una recomendación al Guille de hace diez años: "1. Elegir un camino que sea auténtico al individuo; 2. Cuando hay product/market fit lo vas a saber, no hay tanta vuelta. La mayoría de los modelos de negocios son bastante simples." "Making the Web. Faster." por @rauchg https://rauchg.com/2021/making-the-web-faster "7 Principles of Rich Web Applications" por @rauchg https://rauchg.com/2014/7-principles-of-rich-web-applications https://twitter.com/ETPA_Spaces/status/1530279044587171840?s=20&t=PNFtS0KiFgjmVIP6M_cXhQ

S5 Bonus: Guillermo Rauch, Vercel & Next.js (Replay)

Code Story

Guillermo Rauch is originally from Argentina. He has always been involved in the open source world, starting out working in Linux and native tooling. After a while, he feel in love with the web and the front end web system, working in the early days of AJAX, JS Animation and jQuery competition. When I asked him what he does for fun, he laughed - because he really enjoys what is does professionally on the web .On a personal level though, he has three kiddos so he stays pretty busu. He is into fitness, and does calisthenics and gymnastics. Beyond that, he is into coffee - though I don't know many tech people who aren't into coffee.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.This is the creation story of Next.js and Vercel.SponsorsCourierImg.lyRoutableCTO.aiCloudways offers peace of mind and flexibility so you can focus on growing your business instead of dealing with server management.
