What we’re about
We're a regular meetup of people interested in GraphQL and its ecosystem. We have speakers from all around the globe telling us about the latest developments in the GraphQL world.
What is GraphQL?
GraphQL is a query language for your API which lets developers describe the complex, nested data dependencies of modern applications. You can use GraphQL with any language or platform to define your backend as a well-defined schema. GraphQL makes it easy to build great developer tools, evolve your API over time, and query data efficiently from any client.
Facebook initially developed GraphQL in 2012 to power its native mobile apps, and released an open-source specification in 2015. GraphQL is now used in many environments and applications by teams of all sizes, including Twitter, GitHub, AirBnB, and Intuit.

🎙 Tom Harding - “Build supergraphs, not APIs”
Data is power, but building APIs is tedious. Engineers create vital value by modelling domains and data, but waste time on repetitive plumbing tasks like CRUD, data pipelines, and cross data source joins. What if you could skip all that? With supergraph, you can. Query the supergraph with GraphQL, and get consistent features like joins, filtering, and aggregations across all data sources. Set permissions where they belong: at the model level, where they can be applied to absolutely any query.
Live demo of how to build a supergraph that connects the GitHub API with a users database will be presented.
Tom is an engineer at Hasura focused on producing compilers from GraphQL to SQL, NoSQL, and beyond. He is a regular speaker on topics such as graphics, constraint solving, and functional programming, and an active mentor to many programming newcomers. He now lives in Barcelona with his partner and their cat, Beef, and he spends a lot of time making a fool of himself in both Spanish and Catalan.
