Title: Curious Cases of GraphQL

Description: As GraphQL moves into the mainstream, the tooling & ecosystem has grown and has made it possible to do much more with GraphQL than using it as just a data layer. In this talk, I'll show how developers are using GraphQL as an API gateway to accomplish things that you may have never thought possible.
