"GraphQL represents a massive leap forward for API development." says GitHub. What can we do with it in PHP? It turns out to be not that hard. In this talk I will present how you can make this happen using PHP with Symfony backed by the current available libraries, while also taking some time to introduce you to the concept behind it and what could be the advantages for your project.

I had only touched GraphQL a little bit and this talk gave me a better understanding of the possibilities you have with GraphQL.

Delivery was good, could've talked a little slower. This topic should be shown more on conferences.

While I did enjoy this talk I think it is definitely one that requires a fair amount of concentration and as such should not come right after lunch.

Insightful talk into what it is and how to use it, with plenty of examples. Thanks!

The talk showed that GraphQL is not as scary as it sounds, and made the benefits very clear.
I like the self documenting feature it can provide, and liked how you can flag what is deprecated and let the GraphQL consumers know directly.
It would be fun to mix in some PHP Promises in a GraphQL server implementation.

The talk was good - Renato definitely knows his subject matter - and the Starwars photos were a nice touch :-) Delivery/presentation was a little too fast though.

Excellent talk from Renato, lots of practical details and code examples. Convinced me of the benefits of GraphQL where as before I'd not quite fully realised the practical benefits.
