19:00 - Close - Steve Shanks: Intro to GraphQL followed by Q&A
GraphQL is the new REST and it's going to change the way we develop APIs forever. Or maybe it's just going to take us back to the (allegedly) dark days of SOAP and XML.
Either way, it's a technology that continues to gain in popularity, so there's never been a better time to start learning it.
In this talk we'll look at the basics of GraphQL queries and mutations, and see how a GraphQL API differs from a REST API. We'll then move on to defining our own GraphQL schemas, and look at how to put together a GraphQL API using PHP.
About the speaker
Steve has been a PHP developer for the last 14 years, and is currently a senior engineer at Administrate, where he doesn't write much PHP. He's not a GraphQL expert by any stretch of the imagination, but he's been working with it for about 6 months now. When not doing tech he can be found playing bass or arguing with his cats.

We look forwards to seeing you all for the first PHP meetup of 2019!
