    Getting started with GraphQL on AWS with AWS AppSync and AWS Amplify

    Since its release in 2015, GraphQL has risen in popularity as a compelling alternative to REST for developing APIs thanks to its network efficiency, client-driven design, and technical flexibility. But deploying a highly available and scaleable GraphQL server can be a challenge.

    In this session, we'll see how to build a small Web app to interact with a simple event management GraphQL API, allowing users to view or create new events. We'll cover the basics of using React to render a Web app with our open-source JS library, AWS Amplify, and we'll use AWS AppSync to host a secure and scaleable GraphQL endpoint on AWS with data backed by DynamoDB.
