What is GraphQL and why should you care?
Developer Careers Emma Tracey
We hosted our first tech meetup last Wednesday, to a packed crowd of about 65 developers, in the new offices of TechCode near Alexanderplatz. GraphQL was the topic and we had three talks from Oleg Iiyenko, author of Sangria, a Scala GraphQL implementation, Johannes Schickling, Co-founder of Graph.cool and Yann Simon, a Scala backend developer.
There were three talks on the evening, giving an introduction to GraphQL and then showing backend and frontend uses.
Introduction to GraphQL: why, how and what?
The first talk of the evening was by Oleg Ilyenko, the author of Sangria, a Scala GraphQL implementation.
