"Local First Software and the Automerge CRDT" with Peter van Hardenberg
Show Notes

A recast of the Handmade Seattle 2023 podcast, in which I interviewed Peter van Hardenberg, of Ink and Switch, to learn about the lab, local first software, and their research into "Conflict-free Replicated Data Types" or CRDTs for short.

We discuss: The primary ideals of the Ink and Switch lab, the idea of local first software, and the technical challenges that the lab works to bring us more local first software.
