We missed you this time around!

We hope you're as excited as we are about the first London GraphQL event of 2024!

To kick off the New Year, we have 3 inspiring experts from out of town joining us 💖

Michael runs GraphQL Zurich and is particularly insightful in the C# space. His company, ChilliCream, provides a lot of fantastic tooling.

Laurin is a member of The Guild (love that name) and has worked on so many different levels of GraphQL infrastructure that he's always full of wisdom.

Jesse is an awesome teacher, writer, content creator, and all round good person who we're excited to learn more about Hasura from.

This is going to be one you don't want to miss, for both a delightful evening re-connecting with friends from the London GraphQL community as well as giving our overseas friends an amazing welcome to our city 🙌

Food and drinks will be provided, thanks to Hasura and Neo4j!

Presentations

Michael Staib

GraphQL Fusion: Rethinking Distributed GraphQL

In this talk, we're unpacking GraphQL Fusion, a new approach that makes building distributed GraphQL APIs easier. We'll explore how this approach lets your teams work independently by owning different parts of the company's graph and cover how you can reshape subgraphs to follow your company's rules. Come learn about this powerful tool that brings efficiency and customization to your GraphQL operations.

Laurin Quast

Securing GraphQL APIs

Are you running a GraphQL API in production? Have you thought about securing it? Well, you probably should!

Join Laurin on teaching about possible solutions for securing GraphQL APIs, whether you are building an internal or public graph, he will have you covered using open source solutions from the GraphQL ecosystem! After this talk you will for sure be an expert on query complexity analysis and trusted documents!

Jesse Martin

Transcending microservices hell for Supergraph Nirvana

If you've worked in technology for longer than a couple of years, you'll have taken a ride on the architectural see-saw. After throwing out your monoliths with the proverbial bathwater and going all in on microservices, you decide that actually the microservices suck too and you're going back to the monolith.

Every few years the trends seem to change with organizations switching architecture patterns when existing technology solutions don't quite fix what are often the business-derived problems of data ownership, access management, privacy, storage, and mapping.

In this talk, I'll provide insight into backends for databases, and why many organizations are starting to create their own graphql-based data supergraph.
