About “GraphQL from the Ground Up”

This talk will introduce GraphQL from the ground up. We’ll go over what it is, what problems it solves, and what it looks like. We’ll talk about what setting up a working GraphQL endpoint looks like, and how it simplifies data fetching on the client. And along the way we’ll touch on the incredibly rich ecosystem of tools that make all of these things simpler.

About “Double Javascript II : The Revenge”

We’re getting back to our roots with this meetup: It’s a double-header feature Jesse Harlin and Vance Lucas as the Javascript Dragon Warriors.

ES6 Templating and Echotag

Right now you’re probably underusing the raw dragon-power of es6 templates. Thankfully Vance has written a library that can bring your karate to the next level.

Apollo and GraphQL

You’ve heard of them, but what are they? Are they mysterious ninja assassins waiting to change how you handle data in your app? Maybe, we can’t answer that because you’ll have to join us in-person or online to find out.

What we can do is show you the roles of what Graph QL IS what it DOES and how to get you some. Then learn how to uppercut your next web app with some of the amazing pieces of technology that have built up around Graph Ql.
