GraphQL Summit is the world’s first and largest conference celebrating the GraphQL community. All talks will be in person this year, and the deadline for talk submissions has been extended to July 1. All speakers will be notified of their acceptance by July 8.
We love talks that focus on real developer use cases and teach the audience something new. To help spark some ideas, we've included some suggested talk topics, but please don't limit yourself to our list:
Supergraph: Federated schema design, building a subgraph in Java/Kotlin, Ruby, Go, Python, Rust, and C#, customizing the Apollo Router, caching, onboarding new teams, sharing types between subgraphs, breaking up a monolith, understanding query plans
Best practices: Schema design, demand control, testing, caching, TypeScript codegen, defer/stream, schema change management, authentication and authorization, error handling, CI/CD, observability, data governance, serverless deployments
Client: SSR, modern React (Suspense and Server Components), client performance, client caching and normalization, pagination, mocking, local state management, networking, iOS and Android clients
Future of GraphQL: New proposals to the GraphQL spec, new GraphQL compilers, interesting use cases (Web3, iOT, AR/VR, data science)
Benefits: All speakers will receive a conference ticket and 1 buddy pass, an invitation to an exclusive speakers' dinner, access to the speaker lounge, and a high-quality video recording of your talk. We will also provide 4 nights at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel and round trip economy airfare to San Diego, CA if your employer can't sponsor your travel.
Inclusion: GraphQL Summit welcomes all developers, and we're committed to promoting an inclusive environment at our conference. Our speaker lineup will reflect a diverse balance of races, genders, and backgrounds, and we encourage developers belonging to underrepresented groups in tech to apply.
