πŸ—£ Speakers

Joseph Cooper (@codingcoop)
Founder & CEO at Kintohub (https://kintohub.com)
Talk title: Introducing GraphQL Actions: A new way to add business logic to mutations!
Talk abstract: Introduction to GraphQL Actions, a convention for GraphQL mutations that drive complex business logic and workflows in a micro-services based architecture. The first idea is to move from a CRUD + MVC based design to an action + model update based design to simplify the workflow logic with micro-services. The second idea is to separate the micro-services workflow concern from the GraphQL concern, which enables independence and productivity to simplify GraphQL API development.

Uri Goldshtein (@UriGoldshtein)
Founder & CEO at The Guild (https://the-guild.dev)
Talk title: GraphQL where it hurts the most - Practical tools to use GraphQL in the harshest environments.
Talk abstract: An overview of the GraphQL ecosystem from a slightly different point of view - what are the true benefits of GraphQL when integrating them into an existing codebase and tools to make that integration more easy and powerful.

Tobias Meixner (@meixnertobias)
Co-Founder & CTO at BrikL (https://brikl.com)
Talk title: Public GraphQL APIs
Talk abstract: How to build successful public GraphQL APIs and how to go from internal to public GraphQL APIs using emerging best practices.
