Topic

Life is hard and so is learning GraphQL#

Learning a new technology can be daunting. For many of us, the way we try to make sense of a new technology is through their documentation and the examples we see online. The problem with GraphQL is that - because there’s no “vanilla” GraphQL - there’s no central hub for all of the information and tooling necessary to learn. While documentation is meant to serve as a tool for teaching, it’s underutilized and scattered throughout our community.

Consider this talk a voyage through the ups and downs of learning GraphQL. Along the way, we’ll touch on the major pain points faced by GraphQL beginners and how we can better enable our docs for learning and comprehension.

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.
