6:30 pm - Start: Waiting for everyone to join and quick intro


6:35 pm - Talk 1 by Alex Lobera: Modern JavaScript Architectures for Business Optimisation

Many of the products and tools that support a business heavily rely on JavaScript. We live in uncertain times. Product teams are meant to build and/or customize products, company websites, CMSes, marketing tools, APIs, etc in a global environment that demands more speed and agility, with sometimes fewer resources. In this webinar, we'll be discussing different software, architectures, and processes to optimize the JavaScript of the organizations we work for.

7:10 pm Talk 2 by Uri Goldshtein: GraphQL Mesh - Query Anything, Run Anywhere

In this talk I will demonstrate the new GraphQL Mesh library that was recently announced. GraphQL Mesh changes a lot of the traditional ideas about GraphQL and its relationship with other API protocols. It can automatically generate a GraphQL API from openapi/Swagger, gRPC, SOAP, oData and others without changing the source and merge them all schemas into a single schema - Schema Stitching for any source! In this talk I will share some of the original ideas behind it and my opinions on how the future looks for API consumption and exposure.

Group Discussion

7:45 pm - 8:30 pm: Fishbowl Conversation

We will use a closed fishbowl conversation to facilitate the discussion. That means all the attendees will be in the same room. The host will pick a team of 5 people, who will be part of a fishbowl. This team will not be muted, being able to discuss the topic so that everyone else will be listening. All other people, except for the people in a fishbowl, will be muted. People who want to join the fishbowl should write in the chat that they want to join the conversation. Every 3 minutes one person in the fishbowl leaves (meaning he/she gets muted by the host) and the next one in the queue is unmuted. All this is done by the moderator (host).
