Vercel raises $40M to "build the next web"

Congrats to Guillermo and the entire team on this big vote of confidence!

When responding to investors, we told them the stories of our customers, from independent developers to Fortune 10 companies, and the lessons we learned this year about how Next.js and Vercel help teams collaborate and move faster with greater flexibility.

It’s fascinating how front-and-center Next is in Vercel’s story.

Related: we have an excellent episode of The Changelog coming down the pipeline with Guillermo and JS Party regular Amal Hussein discussing where the web is headed in 2021 and beyond.

Something to look forward to. 😉

Serverless Slack apps with Now

Now you can easily build, deploy, and distribute Slack apps for free with serverless on ZEIT Now.

We recently built a simple Slack app. The app allows users to type /eval <JavaScript code> directly in Slack that evaluates JavaScript code and prints the output directly in a Slack response. Try it out!

In this blog post, we will show you exactly how we did it. We will demonstrate how you can easily build, deploy and distribute similar Slack apps for free, leveraging the power of serverless on Now.

Now 2.0

My biggest take away from this epic announcement from ZEIT? The support of the majestic monorepo!

Now 2.0 enables what we will call The Majestic Monorepo, inspired by a similarly named essay by DHH, creator of Ruby on Rails (The Majestic Monolith).

We don’t agree that you should be orchestrating a big server abstraction (a monolith), but we believe you should be able to collocate your APIs and your business logic in a single place, with a cohesive deployment story.

It looks, feels and deploys like a monolith, with none of its downsides.

…but there is SO MUCH MORE to this announcement. Also, we talked a bit about David’s idea of The Majestic Monolith on The Changelog #286.
