Abstract

GraphQL’s wagon is full of hype, eager adopters, and it’s own band, but what about all the drawbacks? Come listen to a converted skeptic talk about how Netflix is running GraphQL in production. The love story of two: A seasoned developer and a hip shiny graph meet and the REST is history. Talking through how Netflix builds and deploys GraphQL, Garrett will aim to ease some of the concerns teams face when getting started.
