GraphQL Distilled

Presented by: Kito Mann

REST is all about endpoints that perform specific queries or operations. This works fine, but the client is limited by which queries have been exposed. What if the back-end exposed the data, but the client could decide which subset of data it needed, or how to interact with that data? That’s the...

Using SVG to create responsive, interactive and animatable graphics

If You Don’t Have a Failing Test, You Don’t Have S***

Presented by: Nate Berent-Spillson

My go-to technique for just about every problem is a failing unit test. Many developers think of unit tests as something they're forced to write to hit some coverage metric, but when you look at it as a way to prove or disprove a hypothesis—it becomes a very powerful tool for problem-solving. It's...
