What we're about

GraphQL is replacing REST as the best way to model and exchange data between client and server. Companies such as GitHub, Credit Karma, and Coursera are building their future on it. GutHub GraphQL API was unveiled at the first GraphQL Summit in October in SF. The Meteor Development Group unveiled its GraphQL clients for JavaScript, Swift, and also Optics, its first product for GraphQL instrumentation.

In this meetup we'll connect backend and frontend developers around the GraphQL data model and schema, the polyglot ecosystem emerging rapidly about it, the engineering, consulting and educational opportunities, and startup amplification arising from GraphQL. We'll host talks by the founding fathers from Facebook, by the leading developers from the companies implementing GraphQL, and the new navigators sharing their odyssey. Come join, speak, host us!

Scale By the Bay 2021

Needs a location

Scale By the Bay 2021 is in less than two weeks, on October 27-29:


We begin with a workshop by Hasura, free for the conference attendees.

Build a Production-ready Data Access Layer with GraphQL and Hasura

Description: In this live, hands-on workshop, we will introduce the concept of a data mesh, data federation with GraphQL and how to aggregate different APIs into a unified GraphQL layer with Hasura.

We will make use of database connections, external GraphQL APIs, REST APIs and establish relationships between them to create a powerful and secure API that can be consumed by any client.

It will cover:
An introduction to GraphQL and the concept of the Data Mesh
How to set up a GraphQL API using Hasura
How to join across multiple data sources and APIs
How to add use Hasura’s auth system to create roles and restrict access to data
How to connect the GraphQL API to a frontend client

We also have 60+ talks on Software Engineering, Cloud Architecture, and Data Pipelines with AI/ML. See the map pf the whole program at https://chief.sc/sbtb2021-map.
