All About GRAND Stack: GraphQL, React, Apollo, and Neo4j (EN)
Mark Needham, Developer Relations Engineer @Neo4j
In this presentation, we explore application development using the GRAND stack (GraphQL, React, Apollo, Neo4j) for building web applications backed by a graph database. We will review the components to build a simple web application, including how to build a React component, an introduction to JSX, an overview of GraphQL and why it is a game-changer for front-end development. We’ll learn how to model, store, and query data in the Neo4j graph database using GraphQL to power our web application.
Michael Asimakopoulos, Full-stack Developer @Covve
Cross platform technologies have changed considerably. Should you even write an app using one of them in 2018? What tooling, processes and best practices can’t you live without? Which problems will you face and how will you overcome them? How would you organize your team and project? Join us as we share valuable lessons from the last two years of engineering the Covve Ionic/Angular cross platform app.
