We all know the REST architectural style to define a good API for your applications. However, REST has its disadvantages and constraints. That’s why Facebook developed GraphQL as an alternative. In my talk, I will present you some REST constraints and how GraphQL solves them. I will talk about how we implemented GraphQL in our application and why. Get to know our successes… and failures from the first row. The Speaker: ============ Hi, I'm Marcin Stachniuk. I'm a software engineer mainly focused on Java and JVM technologies. I write Clean Code usually using TDD. I appreciate Agile methodologies (because they work), automation of everything and NoSQL solutions. I was a reviewer of the book practicalunittesting.com and organiser of chamberconf.pl. Currently I'm a leader of Wrocław Java User Group wroclaw.jug.pl. I'm a speaker at technical conferences: mstachniuk.github.io/talks, trainer in coding bootcamps and Open Source contributor: shipkit.org. I’m working at Collibra. In my free time I ride snowboard, splitboard, wakeboard and sometimes skateboard. I also enjoy biking, hip-hop music, traveling and winter swimming.

As high-level programming languages users, we love bold promises of getting all our problems solved just by adding a few annotations. Those few annotations come often bundled with other magical techniques like classpath scanning or dynamic proxies… and creep into our domain models contributing to long-term maintainability issues... and/or consultancy and premium enterprise support costs. In this session, we’ll have a look at the cons of adopting invasive frameworks and how we can minimize the problems they cause. The Speaker ============ Grzegorz Piwowarek is a hungry-for-knowledge lead system engineer at Casumo, a trainer at Bottega IT Minds, a blogger at 4comprehension.com, and an OS contributor. He was professionally involved in projects involving systems integration, image recognition, and recently highly scalable distributed solutions - improving everything that he sees. Many Thanks for the collaboration and support by ING. Share the love ============== Help us gather a maximum of participants by hanging our poster in your office or at the coffee corner.
