🗣 Talk 1: Low Code GraphQL With Neo4j by William Lyon
Building GraphQL APIs backed by Neo4j is easier than ever before with low-code tools like the GraphQL Architect graph app for Neo4j Desktop. In this talk we'll take a look at how to create GraphQL APIs backed by Neo4j as well as leveraging some of the geospatial functionality of Neo4j via GraphQL in the context of building a real estate search application.
About WIlliam: William Lyon is a software engineer at Neo4j, the open source graph database, working on integrations and extensions for graph databases as part of the Neo4j Labs team. You can him find online @lyonwj.
🗣 Talk 2: GraphQL in e-commerce: Building for the next billion users by Fredrick Mgbeoma
This talk highlights the benefits of building scalable applications using GraphQL, the challenges that come with it and how you can better manage these as your application scales to an increasing number of users. We will also cover practical applications of GraphQL in the fast-paced e-commerce world.
About Fredrick: Fredrick is a Frontend Engineer at commercetools from Lagos, Nigeria. At commercetools, he is part of the Priceless team where he works with awesome folks to provide a powerful and flexible promotion engine for our users. He has experience building scalable applications for Coursera’s over 60M users and cares about Open Source and making the web more accessible and inclusive
🗣Talk 3: Using code-gen to avoid heuristic GraphQL queries by Daniel Madalitso Phiri
The heuristic approach to querying a GraphQL API is when is when you run an operation on an API with Union or Interface types without using a Fragment Matcher. This comes with problems, the biggest being the inability to query such an API. In this talk, we'll look at GraphQL's types, including union types, and look at how the heuristics problem can be solved using codegen.
