GRANDstack is not your Gran's stack: The Evolution Of Modern Web Development
A look at how modern web development has evolved from the LAMP stack to GRANDstack and how developers can take advantage of these modern tools to be extremely productive building data-intensive fullstack applcations. "GRANDstack is a full-stack framework for building applications with GraphQL, React, Apollo, and Neo4j Database. Learn why GraphQL has been quickly gaining adoption and why representing data as a graph is a win when building your API - both for API developers and consumers, and especially if you are working with graph data in the data layer, such as with a graph database like Neo4j.

In this talk we will cover some of the advantages of GraphQL over REST, as well as challenges with adopting GraphQL. We also dive into backend considerations for GraphQL and show how to leverage the power of representing your API data with graph using GraphQL and graph databases on the backend.

After this talk you will:

* Understand the basics of GraphQL

* Be able to query a GraphQL API

* Understand how a GraphQL service is built

* Be exposed to some of the tooling in the GraphQL ecosystem, including database and frontend framework integrations

Bruce Wayne to Batman: Migrating a Non-Reactive Spring App to Reactive
Adapting an application may feel more like fighting a villain and less like a costume change. In this session, see the process live to migrate a Spring Data Neo4j application to reactive with the new Spring Data Neo4j Reactive capabilities. See how the migration works and avoid the pitfalls! "Taking a working application to the next level by adopting a newer process may often feel more like fighting a villain and less like a quick costume change. Many developers have to migrate applications on their own with little documentation or assistance through the process.

In this session, see the process live as the presenter walks through migrating a Spring Data Neo4j application to a reactive application with the new Spring Data Neo4j Reactive capabilities. We will see how the migration works, as well as understand pitfalls and how to navigate them along the way.

Come to this session to go from a billionaire application to a superhero application through the conversion!
