GraphQL Observability
GraphQL is an immensely powerful tool and while there are tons of resources out there on how to leverage it, there doesn't seem to be much open discussion around Day 2 (maintenance in production) operations of GraphQL. In this talk, we'll be focusing on applying OpenTelemetry to federated GraphQL services to empower teams through observability.

Testing React Apollo Client
"Quality means doing it right when no one is looking". This is a quote by Henry Ford which is applicable to our software development world as well. Writing good tests results in creating better software products, with higher quality which are prone to fewer errors. In this talk, I am going to walk you through testing your GraphQL operations with Apollo Client. We will write tests for our React client application that uses Apollo GraphQL. By the end of this talk, you will be familiar with best practices for testing React components that use Apollo Client for it's GraphQL operations.

The power of schema: How to work in the future.
If you change how you look at schema from the definition of what is available now to what will be available, you can live in your app's future. Join us as we walk through this thought process with examples.

Using Subscriptions with Your Federated Data Graph
In this talk, we will describe how to add scalable subscriptions to a federated graph using a decoupled service responsible for managing client connections and providing real-time updates to those clients. With this approach, the subscriptions service can use any of the types defined in the federated data graph as output types for the Subscription fields in its schema, and it can do so without redefining those types explicitly.
