GraphQL Contributor Days is back!

02 February, 2019 | 2 min read

GraphQL Contributor Days is back by popular demand! We are thrilled to announce this quarterly event in partnership with This Dot Labs and welcome those interested in the GraphQL ecosystem to join.

The next session will be in San Francisco on Feb. 8th, 2019 from 12PM - 4:30PM.

The purpose of the event is for the GraphQL community to come together and discuss some key topics in the GraphQL ecosystem, and facilitate cross collaboration within the community.

As the GraphQL ecosystem grows, with new tooling emerging and newer companies adopting it, this event hopes to give practitioners and members of the GraphQL community an unbiased platform to discuss and learn from each other and push the community forward.

Our last event included topics such as:

  • GraphQL, Microservices, and organising teams around GraphQL
  • Standardizing GraphQL subscription protocol
  • GraphQL in the client - state management on the client & encapsulation in large apps

We will be publishing a blogpost with all of the learnings from the last event here.

In next week’s event, some of the topics that we will be discussing are:

  • GraphQL Tooling & Ecosystem
  • Community collaboration, new initiatives & GraphQL Foundation
  • GraphQL Gateway - architecture, evolution, and experiences

Tanmai, our CEO will be co-hosting this event along with Tracy Lee, the founder of This Dot Labs. Our guests for the next event include creators of Gatsby, Graphene, Apollo, AppSync as well co-creators of GraphQL.
