Description
GraphQL Finland is a community-organized GraphQL conference. The first of its kind in Finland, the event consists of a workshop day and a day of talks around the topic. GraphQL Finland is organized by the same team that brought you React Finland. There are still few GraphQL conferences in the world. However, GraphQL already has an amazing, vibrant community. We wanted to provide a new platform for people to share their GraphQL experience and a new place for people to learn about GraphQL. In this single track event you will learn more about GraphQL and surrounding topics while meeting some of the leading talents of the community. In addition to enjoying the event, this is your chance to explore Finland. It's still relatively warm in October, trust us.

Here we will cover: - Creating A GraphQL Server in Node and connecting it to a MongoDB database - Using Prisma to easily create a GraphQL server - Using GraphQL in the Frontend with React for getting data and also for managing local state - If there is anyone who wants to learn the same concepts in Vue we can go over that too You will leave knowing the basics of GraphQL and ready to enjoy the rest of the conference and build your awesome API’s and Apps using this amazing technology. ### Additional info Workshop will be held at Paasitorni in Helsinki.
