Supabase: Open Source Firebase with Paul Copplestone

Firebase is well-known as a platform that makes it easy to build real-time applications quickly and easily. Firebase was acquired by Google, and has been turned into a large platform that runs on top of Google Cloud. Firebase is closed-source, which leads to a different ecosystem than open source platforms. Supabase is a new open source alternative to Firebase, built on Postgres and Elixir. Paul Copplestone is the founder of Supabase and he joins the show to talk through what he is building.
