Unleash Declarative Data Access with GraphQL APIs

Needs a location

The Austin API Meetup is back with another great event! Join ShipEngine and Solo.io on April 20th from 5:30-7:30 pm CT as Sai Ekbote, GraphQL Engineer at Solo.io speaks about unleashing declarative data access with GraphQL APIs.

GraphQL is redefining the way that developers interact with APIs, putting application clients in control of the data they consume and placing new requirements on platforms hosting these APIs. You can unleash declarative configuration with GraphQL to solve some of your most challenging application networking problems. Understanding when to write code and when to let the platform do the work is a critical tradeoff to understand as you scale GraphQL adoption.

Don't miss out on the Happy Hour, networking, and knowledge! There is limited seating for this event; reserve your spot now!
