Are Performance Issues Really Next.js’s Fault? What Vercel Should Actually Be Building

Jay Phelps is a Senior Software Engineer at Netflix and shares his experiences and perspectives on the challenges and opportunities facing web developers. Along with Ben Lesh, Tracy Lee, and Adam Rackis, they talk about the impact of third-party services on performance optimization, what’s in store for React, and whether Next.js is really the best solution for software engineers.

Jay shares his thoughts on how the web platform (aka Chrome team) can improve performance, and why some of the issues facing Next.js developers are really not Next.js’ fault. He also shares his thoughts on what Vercel could focus on (or should focus on) and why Partytown is worth looking into for those building storefronts.
