Type-safe, data-driven apps, even if databases freak you out

Written version:

You can build a database-powered app with end-to-end type safety and real-time updates without needing to learn how to manage databases. This tutorial will show you how.

Quick note: at 3:50 and 7:20, the mutations should also be async functions and we should await db.insert() — leaving it out isn't a bug but the Convex team let me know that it's safer to always send async functions to queries and mutations.
