How Go is being used to build the next-generation blockchain - Jerry Fireman

Cryptocurrencies fluctuate wildly but their underlying blockchain technology is steadily proceeding to disrupt money, business, identity and governance. This talk will discuss how the Go language is being used to scale the blockchain to accommodate the next generation of decentralized applications.

Intro to GraphQL - Cat Turner

GraphQL is a replacement for REST, the industry standard for API design. This talk will display a simple implementation of Graphql and Apollo. This talk is to get you familiar with the basics to get you started, and will not be a technical deep-dive.

??? - Could be you!
