Dynamic application developers need global state management, not a database. James (@jamesacowling) presents his talk from the HYTRADBOI 2022 database conference on how Convex is rethinking how app developers manage global state.
Alex Cole discusses dynamic web apps, how serverless solutions compare to in-house stacks, and how product development changes when individual engineers can own features end-to-end.

Today, a new wave of innovation is making databases approachable for developers without requiring a specialized skillset, opening the door to a whole new category of ambitious web experiences. In this panel, you’ll hear from the people pushing the boundaries of database technology and learn what’s possible — and what’s coming.
Relational databases are powerful tools for persisting data, but using them to build interactive web apps requires a lot of work. A web app architecture built on a relational database is an entire cluster of databases, backends, caching nodes, and Pub/Sub servers. And even after you invest in all of that infrastructure you'll still need to explicitly define your database schema upfront and write cumbersome SQL queries. At Convex we believe that web developers shouldn't have to worry about any of this. We can handle the servers, caching, and reactivity and you can focus on your product.
Build in minutes, scale forever.
Convex is the backend application platform with everything you need to build your project. Cloud functions, a database, file storage, scheduling, search, and realtime updates fit together seamlessly.
