Users expect real-time data. They want their banking transaction notifications now. Their orders confirmed now. They need prices accurate as of now. They want their user experience to feel—connected. The world has moved to push and users are waiting for the data-driven experiences we create on the web to catch up.

GraphQL is Facebook’s response to this challenge. In addition to the familiar pull based request-response pattern, GraphQL provides a mechanism for clients to subscribe to real-time updates in the form of Subscriptions. Subscriptions are exciting as they represent the core ability we need to satisfy the connected experience that our users demand.

In this talk, we will take a hands-on look at GraphQL and see how it can be used to build real-time APIs that are a joy to use. Additionally, we will explore how to integrate a React client with GraphQL using the ultra flexible, community driven Apollo client. By the end of the session you will understand what is required to craft a compelling real-time user experience with GraphQL, and have the knowledge to deliver on these requirements.
