For this code along we hosted Lee Robinson, who works at Vercel as a Solutions Architect and leads DevRel for Next.js. Lee showed the community how to build a Serverless Next.js application using HarperDB, and deploy it to Vercel. The application utilized Next.js API Routes, which get deployed as Serverless functions on Vercel, to connect to HarperDB via our REST API. Vercel is a cloud platform for static sites and Serverless Functions. It enables developers to host websites and web services that deploy instantly, scale automatically, and require no supervision; all with no configuration. Next.js is an open-source React framework for web development for both server-rendered and static web applications.
