  • JavaScript Night #5 featuring GraphQL Schema Stitching & more!!

    This month, we'll have presentations on GraphQL, Meteor, and a developer journey with React. This evening will host a mix of live and pre-recorded events. (Pizza, drinks, and location sponsored by Priceline.) MEETUP AGENDA 6:30pm - Welcome / Networking 7:00pm - Shining Stars @ 1.8 – Alim S. Gafar It's been a while since we've had a Meteor-focused talk. Although an early darling of the JavaScript community, racking up over 40,000 stars on Github, much of its early champions have moved on to different parts of the stack, whether it's React, Vue, Aurelia, Angular, and others for the front end or GraphQL at the back end. And yet work hasn't stopped on improving the platform. In this talk, we'll survey the changes since version 1.6, and discuss the ongoing refinements to both the technology and the enhanced role the community plays in moving Meteor forward. You'll learn: * Why Meteor is still relevant in 2019, * How to get started building applications with Meteor, and * How to contribute to this project to keep Meteor current and relevant Alim S. Gafar is a technology evangelist specializing in voice, blockchain, AI, mobile, and JavaScript. He consults at DIRA Market Dynamics, a market discovery and development firm. You can reach him at (https://twitter.com/alimgafar) on Twitter. 7:20pm - Choreographing Code: A Developer's Journey – Cassidy Samelian I will talk about React and why I have chosen to work with it. I'll share the pros and cons of learning the framework, with examples of code snippets for reference. This talk covers my journey from professional dancer to software engineer working with React and all of the dedication and decision making that was involved in getting me here. The presentation blends examples of the projects I have created and depict my journey through code through the evolution of my work. I'll discuss my final Flatiron School project to explain how I used React to combine my artistry and programming skills. Cassidy Samelian is a full stack software engineer and professional dancer, who combines her love of logic and artistry into a single medium. Continue the discussion with her by connecting at https://www.linkedin.com/in/cassidy-samelian on LinkedIn. 7:45pm - Schema Stitching with GraphQL - Paul Dowman How do you build microservices with GraphQL? Many companies want to have multiple back-end services that are independently developed and deployed. But to maximize the value of GraphQL you want to have one unified graph, and Apollo’s schema stitching feature is one way to achieve this. This talk will discuss the motivation, the tradeoffs and risks, and dive into some code to implement an example of schema stitching. This is a recording of the presentation (http://bit.ly/Dowling-SchemaStitching) made the the Toronto GraphQL meetup this past March. Paul Dowman is the Founder of OK Grow!, a software development consultancy based in Toronto, Canada.

MEETUP AGENDA 6:00pm - Welcome / Networking 6:30pm - GraphQL to Apollo or not – Karan Vohra and Glenn Hinks If you move an existing REST API to GraphQL you have some tough decisions to make. You can use the Apollo tools or not. You have to decide on schemas and testing strategies. We are going to talk about how we have started migrating a well used API to GraphQL and why or why not to use the Apollo toolset. Karan Vohra is developer at AmericanExpress and first time speaker. Find him at karanvohra33 [aT} gmail (.] com, Glenn Hinks is also a developer at AmericanExpress who can be contacted at ghinks <@) yahoo {dU+> com. 6:45pm - Hard-Learned GraphQL Lessons: Based on a True Story – Natalie Qabazard and Aditi Garg A beginner GraphQL developer may have questions for which only some answers can be found in docs, blog posts, & threads online. In this video from the GraphQL Summit 2018, two Trulia engineers answered their own questions when building GraphQL data sources. They'll share tips & best practices they established at Trulia. (https://youtu.be/eUrtRzqN0h0) Natalie Qabazard is a Senior Software Engineer working on the Trulia team at Zillow Group and she actively works with React, Typescript, GraphQL, and AWS.

Gafar This brief presentation will chart the similarities and differences between relational and graph paradigms. At the end of the discussion, developers with a background using SQL will learn the key operations for creating, reading, updating, and deleting data entries using GraphQL. Alim S. Gafar is a technology evangelist specializing in voice, blockchain, AI, mobile, and JavaScript. He consults at DIRA Market Dynamics, a market discovery and development firm. You can reach him at @alimgafar on Twitter. 7:25pm - The Node.js Event Loop: Not So Single Threaded – Bryan Hughes You've heard Node.js is single threaded. It's true that all JavaScript executed by Node.js is run in a single thread, but JS isn't all. The event loop, written in C++, is multi-threaded! Come learn how the event loop works, how it affects performance, and how you can use it your advantage! This recording of Bryan's presentation is provided by the NodeJS Foundation. (https://youtu.be/zphcsoSJMvM) Bryan Hughes is a technical evangelist at Microsoft, a member of the Node.js Technical Steering Committee, and chairperson of the Node.js Community Committee.
