Web Applications of the Future With TypeScript and GraphQL - Roy Derks
Roy is an entrepreneur, speaker and author from The Netherlands and, in his own words, 'wants to make the world a better place through tech'. He has been giving talks and training to developers worldwide on technologies like GraphQL, React and TypeScript. Most recently he wrote the books Fullstack GraphQL and React Projects.
This talk will show you how to leverage the TypeScript type system to help you create a type safe application, all based on your data coming from GraphQL. If you're working with React and either TypeScript or GraphQL, you'll definitely want to combine them afterwards.
Monorepo management of the Future with Nx - Wellington Gesteira
Wellington is an enthusiast of transforming teams to collaborate efficiently and continuously improve, via a thoughtful and pragmatic approach that is leveraged by sound technology and a people-centric way of working. He has worked in a wide variety of industries and different parts of the technology stack.
Providing a robust and unobtrusive Dev Experience to work in a monorepo is a challenging endeavour. Many teams experience resistance with monorepos due to the lack of solid tech to support it at scale.
This talk will showcase how Nx can truly make working with monorepos a joyful reality that combines a higher built-in quality with a higher productivity as well.
