Hi there! 


We are back with another awesome meetup. This time around we will be hosted at Twitter headquarters.

Tom Ashworth, an Engineer at Twitter, will share how Twitter adopted GraphQL from prototype to production. He will focus on the challenges adopting GraphQL in a massive microservices system with a huge API, multiple clients, and serving billions of requests per day... Yay!! ✨

Tasveer Singh, a speaker at GraphQL Europe, will talk on how we can use GraphQL using a decentralised architecture, focusing on peer-to-peer  opposed to a client/server approach.
