Vercel AI with Lee Robinson


Vercel provides a cloud platform to rapidly deploy web projects, and they develop the highly successful Next.js framework. The company recently made headlines when they announced v0 which is a generative AI tool to create React code from text prompts. The generated code uses open-source tools like Tailwind CSS and shadcn/ui.

Lee Robinson is the VP of Product at Vercel. He helps lead the product teams and focuses on developer experience on the platform. He joins the show to talk about Vercel, their AI SDK to easily connect frontend code with LLMs, the v0 AI tool, and more.
