Our next JAMstack Boston Meetup will take place on Tues, June 18th at 6 p.m.!
This month we have the co-founders of TakeShape, Mark Catalano and Andrew Sprouse, giving an Introduction to GraphQL. GraphQL has taken the API world by storm! If you've been RESTing on your laurels we'll get you up to speed with an introduction to GraphQL and some helpful tips to remember when you build out your first GraphQL API.
GraphQL+CMS = Peanut Butter+Jelly - Follow along to a live coding introduction to TakeShape, a headless GraphQL CMS that champions the JAMstack with a focus on developer productivity. We'll show you why pairing a GraphQL API with a static site CMS makes the JAMstack even more delicious.
Andrew started his career in enterprise search and natural language processing at Autonomy, acquired by HP. After that, he moved into media where he led the engineering team at Newsweek and The Daily Beast. Prior to TakeShape he was CTO and Co-Founder of a startup called Fairtread where he helped creators monetize their digital content.
For the past 7 years, Mark was the managing director of Ronik, an award-winning creative agency in Brooklyn. He’s had to solve content
management conundrums for clients, building everything from traditional media sites to interactive experiences and marketing platforms.
As always, the intent of this meetup is to collaborate, network, learn, grow and most importantly have fun! Here's the agenda:
6:00 - 6:20 Food & Drink
6:20 - 6:30 Opening Remarks
6:30 - 6:45 Hugo mini course, Part 2: Templating
6:45 - 7:45 "All You Ever Wanted To Know About Graph" with Mark Catalano and Andrew Sprouse
