The GraphQL Foundation's inaugural GraphQL Conf will be co-located with OpenJS World and cdCon in Austin, TX, on June 7-8, 2022. This collaborator summit-style event will be an opportunity for core GraphQL spec and implementation developers to meet in person, discuss recent work, and plan for the future. All attendees of OpenJS World and CDcon are welcome.
The goal of this event is to not only give essential updates to the community but also as a forum to provide a voice for anyone using GraphQL to have direct access to core contributors and authors of various libraries and frameworks through live chat and an online broadcast.
