Workshop: Cloud Native Development for Node.js Engineers - Luke Holmquist, Red Hat
As cloud services and deployment platforms have come to bear more and more responsibility for the “Enterprise” features of modern application development, Node.js becomes more appealing for enterprise engineers who want to take advantage of its light weight, quick startup time, developer productivity and overall happiness.

But cloud native development can seem daunting. How do you both write an app and also deal with automation, service discovery, observability, immutability, scalability and all of the other cloud native and practices?

It’s a lot to keep track of. It’s a lot to do. It’s scary!

But it doesn’t have to be. In this workshop you will learn how to develop and deploy Kubernetes managed Node.js applications. By the time we’re done, you will have created a Node.js application backed by Node.js microservices, and deployed it to a live Kubernetes cluster.

GraphQL, Simplified - David Clements & Matteo Collina, NearForm (Limited Seating; First-come, First-Served Basis)
Use React? Use GraphQL? Love Hooks? Graphql-hooks is a new GraphQL client for React with a hooks-first API. It’s super fast and weighs only 1.9kB gzipped.

The motivation behind graphql-hooks was a barebones GraphQL Client, focused on speed and lightweight. Both Apollo and Relay have pioneered how to use GraphQL on the client. However, over the years they’ve grown in size and complexity. This has increased the barrier to entry for new developers excited to try out GraphQL.

In this workshop, David and Matteo will be demonstrating how quick and simple it is to get up and running with the graphql-hooks client and fastify-gql GraphQL server library to produce an easily maintainable and high performance fullstack GraphQL implementation.
