Calling all backend developers! If you are looking to learn more about building, managing, and securing your supergraph at scale, then this blog is for you. Read on for your backend developer’s guide to GraphQL Summit 2022. 

#ICYMI: GraphQL Summit 2022 is back in person October 3-5 in San Diego for 3 days of surf, sun, and all things GraphQL. Register today to avoid all the FOMO. 

Why you should attend GraphQL Summit 2022 

Come to GraphQL Summit to hear best practices from backend developers at leading global enterprise organizations who are minimizing API maintenance work by contributing to the supergraph.  

Connect with fellow backend developers to share advice for building subgraphs, ensuring security, and modernizing your stack with a supergraph while overlooking the San Diego marina or indulging in brews at the ultimate Graph & Brew at Stone Brewery.

  • Learn how to make sure you’re taking full advantage of Apollo Federation to batch operations to subgraphs and subgraphs to downstream through resolvers with a custom DataLoader dispatching mechanism. 

How We Do Localization at Babylon with Dominic Chambers, Staff Engineer, Babylon 

  • Discover how utility objects can be used when creating subgraphs that expose functionality that can not be surfaced using entity objects. Plus, Dominic will share concrete examples of how they’ve done this at Babylon, and why they think it’s a great pattern.
