Announcing the full speaker lineup for our free, live-streamed GraphQL conference
👋 Kristian from Bytesized Code here – super excited to announce the speaker lineup for Byteconf GraphQL, a free live-streamed GraphQL conference, taking place on January 31st, 2020!
Byteconf GraphQL will be a great resource for GraphQL developers of all experience levels, and our speaker list is shaping up to be a really awesome group of developers from around the world 🌍🌎🌏
Real quick, if you haven't heard of Byteconf ✋ it's a free developer conference series, live-streamed on YouTube 🍿
Since 2017, four Byteconfs have gone live to people around the world:
- ⚛️ Byteconf React
- 📱 Byteconf React Native
- 🧠 Byteconf ReasonML (we dig doing mini-confs for new, cool stuff too 😎)
💬 Byteconf GraphQL will go live on January 31st. While the talks premiere, many of our speakers will join us in the live chat for the conference – it's an awesome twist on the conference format that allows speakers to give more context to their talks, and to allow conference attendees to ask questions directly and immediately to speakers.
Want to attend the conference? Go to our website and RSVP for your free ticket – we'll send you an email when the conference goes live, so you won't miss it.
🎓 Personally, I've been learning from some of these folks for years (!) and I'm thrilled to have them joining the conference! As always, Byteconf GraphQL will also feature a number of first-time speakers, getting started on the journey of sharing all the great stuff they know (hooray!)
💼 By the way, we're also working with companies who are interested in sponsoring the conference! Doing so helps us pay for equipment to ship to speakers, promote the event, and grow our community. If you're interested in getting in front of a large audience of passionate developers, check out our sponsorship prospectus.
