Workshop/break-out session:
Creating a GraphQL API in Python: from Django to fully asynchronous

With thanks to Mirumee Labs

Wednesday 10:00-11:00 UTC+2 in Workshop 1

GraphQL has become one of the hottest web development technologies and is gaining popularity. And there are valid reasons for that!

GraphQL has become one of the hottest web development technologies and is gaining popularity. And there are valid reasons for that! In this hands-on workshop, we’ll show you the basics of building GraphQL servers in Python using Ariadne, a modern and lightweight library (https://github.com/mirumee/ariadne). We’ll start with the most important concepts then work through creating an example query with a resolver and a mutation. We also want to give you a sneak peek into Python of the future - asynchronous subscriptions with Ariadne, Django Channels 2.0, Starlette and asynchronous database access! If you’re just as excited about new technology as we are, make sure to book a slot and join us.

Note: Preinstalled Python 3.7 is required to run the code examples presented during the workshop.

Break-out sessions are expected to last around 60 minutes. They will have limited seats and will have a sign-up option provided on the ticketholder website, once the schedule is known.
