We couldn’t be more excited about this lineup, which was carefully selected by a panel of representing some of the major GraphQL maintainers and users. Thanks Lee Byron, Tomer Elmalem, Robert ZhuPeggy RayzisSashko StubailoJohannes Schickling, and Max Stoiber for your help!

What resulted is an awesome program of speakers representing:

  • Some of the largest companies using GraphQL today, including IBM, KLM, Twitter, Intuit, Capital One and more
  • Maintainers of the most important services and open source libraries in the GraphQL ecosystem, including Apollo, Graphcool, Facebook, Graphene, and others

They’ll be delivering a diverse set of talks from ranging from best practices on how to handle things like authorization, codegen, mutations, and caching, all the way down to the nitty gritty details of experimental features in GraphQL’s future (you won’t want to miss the talk on live queries).
