👾 Real World Graphene
Graphene is currently the most popular framework for building GraphQL in Python and it's also an obvious choice for many people who decide on adding a GraphQL layer to their Django applications. After using it for over a year we've successfully built an API with about 50 queries and over 100 mutations on top of existing Django project (Saleor), but we've also learned many hard lessons and discovered shortcomings of the framework that we had to overcome.
In this talk, I'd like to show practical tips on some of the most common problems that a Django developer has to face to build an optimized and maintainable API with Graphene e.g.: - using useful abstractions to build queries and mutations faster - optimizing database queries in a graph - structuring a large Graphene project - unified error handling.

🔎 Testing GraphQL: From Zero To Hundred Percent
Testing is important for every project, whether it's a web application or API service. But writing scripts to test your application can be a hassle, especially for specific frameworks or tools like GraphQL. Sure, you could think about unit, integration or E2E-tests. But how do you specifically test your GraphQL schemas and queries? In this talk I'll discuss the approaches to efficiently test a GraphQL server, using patterns and tools that you're probably already are familiar with.

⚡️ Building GraphQL API for a twitter clone in 10 minutes
In this talk, we’ll together compose a GraphQL schema for a twitter clone and using just that schema we’ll autogenerate all the GraphQL API functions required to start building the application using Dgraph. Dgraph is the only native GraphQL Database which natively interprets, distributed, stores and executes GraphQL, no layering required, all you need to do is to compose a GraphQL schema to get started.
