👋 Kristian from Bytesized Code here – super excited to announce the first round of speakers for Byteconf GraphQL, a free live-streamed GraphQL conference, taking place on January 31st, 2020!
Byteconf GraphQL will be a great resource for GraphQL developers of all experience levels, and our speaker list is shaping up to be a really awesome group of developers from around the world 🌍🌎🌏
Real quick, if you haven't heard of Byteconf ✋ it's a free developer conference series, live-streamed on YouTube 🍿
Since 2017, four Byteconfs have gone live to people around the world:
- ⚛️ Byteconf React
- 📱 Byteconf React Native
- 🧠 Byteconf ReasonML (we dig doing mini-confs for new, cool stuff too 😎)
💬 Byteconf GraphQL will go live on January 31st. While the talks premiere, many of our speakers will join us in the live chat for the conference – it's an awesome twist on the conference format that allows speakers to give more context to their talks, and to allow conference attendees to ask questions directly and immediately to speakers.
Want to attend the conference? Go to our website and RSVP for your free ticket – we'll send you an email when the conference goes live, so you won't miss it.
Our first round of speakers are four awesome folks from the web development and GraphQL communities – Eve Porcello, Shruti Kapoor, Nader Dabit, and Domitrius Clark 👨🏫 👩🏫
🎓 Personally, I've been learning from some of these folks for years (!) and I'm thrilled to have them joining the conference! As always, Byteconf GraphQL will also feature a number of first-time speakers, getting started on the journey of sharing all the great stuff they know (hooray!)
⭐️ Are you a GraphQL developer? Want to teach what you know at Byteconf GraphQL? Our Call for Papers is open until Sunday, December 22nd – check out more information about speaking at Byteconf here!
💼 By the way, we're also working with companies who are interested in sponsoring the conference! Doing so helps us pay for equipment to ship to speakers, promote the event, and grow our community.
