Details

Our first meetup of the year in Wellington. Let’s hear about the latest developments in #SilverStripe4.

5:30 pm Come have a few drinks and nibbles
6:00 pm Talks

Aaron Carlino (aka Uncle Cheese) will talk about the new `silverstripe-graphql` module that has been added to the SilverStripe 4 core release. The brainchild of Facebook, GraphQL is a query language for creating declarative APIs that challenges everything you've learned about REST and asks that you think differently about how you expose data to the client. It is a fast-moving web technology, and has many exciting implications for the frontend and backend experience in SilverStripe.

Robbie Averill will talk about the process of upgrading your modules and/or projects to SilverStripe 4. The new SilverStripe Framework/CMS includes new features like Bootstrap 4 in the CMS, ReactJS, namespacing, campaigns and more. He will touch on the major changes for upgrading, smaller "gotchas", new code conventions and best practices, and using the SilverStripe Upgrader tool to help you out.

As usual, there will be plenty of drinks, networking and pizzas :)

And don't forget you can bring a guest and sign up for the waiting list if the meeting is full (there will be some people who cannot make at the last minute).
