Curt Tilmes will be leading a demo remotely on his Perl 6 implementation of the GraphQL standard. If you can't join us in person you can watch the event on YouTube live (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIDZn8NHHfM).
GraphQL is a query language for APIs and a runtime for fulfilling those queries with your existing data. GraphQL provides a complete and understandable description of the data in your API, gives clients the power to ask for exactly what they need and nothing more, makes it easier to evolve APIs over time, and enables powerful developer tools.
We'll meet around 6:30 and provide pizza and drinks. Curt's demo will begin around 7pm.
