Developing Serverless applications with GraphQL

Marcia Villalba, Rovio

How to build a serverless application with the least amount of code needed?

In this talk, I will show you how to architect serverless applications with GraphQL, using AppSync. I will introduce you to the AppSync service and all its different components. AppSync is a managed service from AWS and is a GraphQL server. It has a lot of out of the box functionalities that are really helpful when building applications like authorization or subscriptions, and it connects directly to services like DynamoDB so you don’t need to code that interface yourself.

I will start talking about GraphQL, then why Serverless and GraphQL are a match made in heaven and I will close my presentation showing AppSync.
