GraphQL SF Meetup: September Edition

This is the first of an ongoing new series of meetups for the GraphQL community in the San Francisco Bay Area organized with and supported by the GraphQL Foundation. There is still time to sign up for GraphQLConf which is taking place at the same location as this meetup on September 19-21 in Burlingame. You will get a 20% discount when registering for GraphQLConf here with code:


In addition to the tacos and the open bar, we have technical talks planned for you covering federated APIs at scale, Rust powered API development, using GraphQL with Relay, Rapid Prototyping with Graphs, and the Indexing Protocol for Web3 Data. This event was made possible by the generous support of StellateThe GuildHasuraNeo4J, and The Graph Foundation.

Finally, a special thanks goes out to Atlassian for their initial involvement in organizing most of these talks and offering to hold the event at their office in San Francisco on Tuesday, September 12th.

GraphQL or tRPC Data Discussion

👋🏽 Welcome to the inaugural tRPC Guild event!

We have the creator of tRPC, Alex Johansson (aka "KATT"), and urql GraphQL core team member, Phil Plückthun (aka "kitten"), together to chat about data architecture 🐱🐈

Additionally, we have Taz Singh facilitating the discussion (to stay on brand, his last name means "lion") 🦁

About the event

We want to keep the discussion open and informative, aiming to dive deep into advanced topics that you'd consider when creating a rich application today such as:

  • General usage

  • Server-side considerations

  • Type safety

  • Real-time

  • Error handling

  • Usage deprecation

  • And so on (audience participation welcome!)

Thanks to Aris for acquiring venue space around Shoreditch to make this possible, we'll be hosting up to 100 attendees in-person. Additionally, we'll be streaming the event on YouTube. To receive information on the in-person venue or virtual streaming, please RSVP to this event.

If you can't make it to the event, no worries! We'll post a video of the stream to the Guild after. Please join the tRPC Guild to keep up with the latest Events & Presentations!

To keep things simple, in-person attendees are able to ask questions and get involved in the discussion (we very much welcome even coming on stage and joining us!), while virtual attendees are asked to submit any questions by tweeting at Taz, Alex, or Phil ahead of time that we will try to accommodate based on the direction of the discussion.


  • 6:30pm: Doors open

  • 7pm: Discussion begins

  • 8pm: Discussion hopefully ends

  • 9pm: Doors close
