Saleor Commerce was proud to become a Silver sponsor at GraphQL Summit 2019, the world's largest GraphQL dedicated conference held in San Francisco.
We also hosted a booth to present Saleor and show how we have incorporated a GraphQl API into our platform. It was a great chance to share and gain knowledge at the event which was attended by over 1,200 developers from all around the world.
Our Lead Dev, Marcin, gave a guiding talk on our experience of building a GraphQL API for Saleor. He presented what building a GraphQL API looks like in Python, delved into the most popular framework and highlighted its pros and cons. Marcin also explained why we use Python, and why we invest so much time and effort in it:
- readability of code - this makes the codebase easier to maintain
- rising popularity - it's becoming one of the most popular programming languages
- recent versions of Python have introduced asynchronous execution - necessary to run modern web apps that require real-time features
We’re really excited to be a part of such a fast-growing community and cutting-edge technology. We appreciate the dynamism of GraphQL and were grateful to talk with the attendees about their excitement for the future of it. The summit was very rewarding and well organized—we are already looking forward to the next one.
