Luke Bonaccorsi - Testing with Snapshots
In June 2016, Facebook introduced snapshot testing into Jest, it’s JavaScript unit testing framework. Since then, snapshot testing has seen massive uptake because it makes writing tests for things like React way easier.

In this talk I’ll go through what snapshot testing is, how it works and when to use it. I’ll be covering examples using React as well as non-React uses and hopefully you’ll gain the same enthusiasm I have for snapshot testing!

Jamie Barton - The current state of GraphQL
"Jamie is a Developer Success Engineer working at Moltin. In this short talk Jamie will take a deep dive into an example GraphQL server and how it works. Jamie will also cover the basics of GraphQL and provide an up to date status of what GraphQL has to offer and what the community are saying about it."

Please note the group is intended for people looking to expand their knowledge. While recruiters are welcome to come and learn, we operate a strict no recruitment policy.
